When asked if he would use ring girls for his promotion, UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov claims stunning ring girls are ‘most useless people in martial arts’
After signing a big $7 million deal with Russian MMA promotion Gorilla Fighting Championship, “The Eagle” said that he has no real intention of ever having ring girls at his events.
During a recent press conference (h/t Middle Easy), Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov explained how Ring girls have not appeared at any of his Eagle FC events.
“Look, I don’t want to offend anyone, ring girls are the most useless people in martial arts. What is their purpose? I have a question. You can show that it is the second round on the screen. I realize that is a history. History knows many mistakes. We read history to avoid mistakes of the past in the future. If we look in the history, it says they are useless. That is my personal opinion…
“For example, I sit with my father. Every person has his own preferences, the culture and values. I come to Fight Night, sit with my father. These people are passing by and showing that it is the second round. But no one looks at the plate. I feel uncomfortable with my father. I am not against it. If you want you can do it, but don’t impose it to me, do it aside. There are the designated places for it. I think we must not mix all of it. This is my private opinion.”
