Khabib’s Advice For Women Who Want To Try MMA: "Be A Fighter Inside Your Own Home"

Khabib Nurmagomedov has been labelled 'sexist' for his answer during a MISK talk in Saudi Arabia.

The UFC undisputed lightweight champion was asked for a piece of advice for women who want to try MMA, and in a response that gathered a combination of gasps and laughs from the crowd, he said the following:

"'For females, I have very good advice, be fighters at home. And one more advice, all the time, finish your husband."

It has certainly caused discussion online. What are your thoughts on the below clip?

Nurmagomedov has certainly had an eventful 2018.

He didn't exactly sound like he was too sorry for what happened in the aftermath of his fight with Conor McGregor back in October, but he did manage to say sorry to someone.

When it came to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor none of that was going to happen, no matter what the result at UFC 229 for the lightweight title, with the two men clearly hating each other.

McGregor had really made things personal by throwing a trolley at a bus that Khabib was on earlier in the year, smashing up the bus and causing havoc to the UFC 223 card in the process.

The Irishman had then gone even more personal during the build up to their fight, filling the press conferences with jibes about Khabib's politics and even occasionally his religion.

After the fight there were no handshakes or hugs as the Russian jumped out of the octagon to attack McGregor's teammate and one of his teammate's jumped in to attack McGregor.

The Notorious didn't make the press conference but the Eagle did and he managed to apologise, kind of.

"Oh I'm sorry but it wasn't actually my fault, he started it, look at what Conor did."
