Midnight Mania! Khabib Has Worst Possible Advice For Female Fighters

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight …

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was asked if he had advice for female fighters. The Dagestani took his time before giving his response.

Be a fighter inside your home.

The audience erupted into cheers. Khabib continued.

All the time, finish your husband. [more cheers] smash him really bad.

This is far from the first time a male mixed martial arts champion has expressed regressive views regarding the role of women in the sport. George St. Pierre earned the ire of female mixed martial artists a few years ago by expressing his admittedly ‘traditional’ views about women and cage fighting. Khabib’s compatriot Fedor Emelianenko is also on record disapproving of female fighters in mixed martial arts (though, oddly enough, boxing or wrestling are fine).

This also isn’t Khabib’s first brush with controversy. He advised his countrymen in an Instagram post about the immorality of rap music, he has endorsed criminal Russian oligarchs, and of course he ignited a post-fight brawl with Conor McGregor’s teammates.


Insomnia

UFC PR evidently told MMA media to refrain from any questions about Greg Hardy’s past, and MMA media complied.

No one told the UFC to sign Greg Hardy, who according to evidence and sworn testimony has a record of domestic violence (his conviction was overturned on appeal and expunged after he settled with the victim), and certainly no one told them to book him on the same card as very recent domestic violence survivor Rachael Ostovich.


The UFC will look to move Henry Cejudo vs. TJ Dillashaw to main event their January ESPN card in Brooklyn.

John Lineker shouldn’t be able to beat Dominick Cruz, but his power and aggression means the fight will be Cruz dancing on a knife edge.

We make fun of Tito Ortiz a lot but this is me in front of a camera too:

Down she goes

At least he tried…


Random Land

This is why people don’t like PETA.

Speaking of animals, the Russians sent their cosmonauts into space with pistols: three-barreled pistols with a machete attachment. It makes sense once you realize that the pistols were for bear.

Thank You, UFC Flyweight Fighters

In just a few short months, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight division will more than likely come to an end after nearly seven years. Division “G.O.A.T.” Demetrious Johnson has already been traded to ONE FC in exchange for Ben Askren, half the division has been bumped up to Bantamweight, and the other half has been cut.

It’s a damn shame … regardless of how company President Dana White attempts to spin it.

Flyweights get a massive amount of heat for being “small,” despite being the same size as a boxing Featherweight. They get heat for being “boring,” despite giving us the likes of Ben Nguyen, Tim Elliott, and arguably one of the organization’s most entertaining fighters in Deiveson Figueiredo. Are there bad Flyweight fights and bad Flyweight fighters? Of course, but look at the rest of UFC — the Light Heavyweight division is a graveyard outside the Top 5, women’s Bantamweight is dead in the water, and 90 percent of Heavyweight fights are a coin flip between stunning early finishes and two extremely large, extremely out-of-breath men wheezing circles around each other for 15 minutes.

And Lord knows the 125-pound division didn’t get half the push those did. For the first half of the year, there wasn’t a single non-title Flyweight bout on a UFC main card. UFC bemoaned the lack of interest in Demetrious Johnson’s title defenses despite putting no effort toward promoting his opposition while they were working their way through the ranks.

“People don’t care about small fighters” doesn’t hold water when HBO’s Superfly series, which pitted elite 115-pound boxers against each other, did great numbers. Or when the World Boxing Super Series’ Bantamweight (118-pound) tournament is doing similarly well, helmed by one of the greatest knockout artists alive in Naoya Inoue.

In the past, I’ve “given thanks” for specific fights and fighters. This time, though, I want to show my appreciation for both the UFC Flyweights — who busted their asses with no support whatsoever — and the up-and-coming 125-pounders on the regional and international scenes who just saw their dreams crushed on a whim.

Godspeed, you quick little bastards. Thank you for doing what you do.
