Khabib had feud with "pointless" ring girls and UFC's richest Octagon babe hit back

Khabib Nurmagomedov labelled UFC ring girls as pointless as the former world champion branded them "the most useless people in martial arts". The 33-year-old came under fire when he slammed ring girls last year, with mega-rich bikini model Arianny Celeste slating the former fighter. Speaking at a Moscow press conference, the UFC legend said: “Look, I don’t want to offend anyone: Ring girls are the most useless people in martial arts.

What is their function? I have a question. You can show that it is the second round on the screen.“I realise that is 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.

Dana White maybe likes it. Maybe you do, too. But my name is not Dana.

My name is Khabib.”Since retiring from fighting, Khabib has gone into promotion and has said he will not use ring girls in any of his events. Ring girls' part in the sport has been a debated topic in recent years, with some people labelling them as sexist and unnecessary whereas some say it is part of the heritage of the sport. Following Khabib's open dismay at ring girls, he came under fire from people in the sport, and most notably the richest and most recognisable Octagon babe there is.
