Khabib Nurmagomedov in sexism row after star claims women should 'be fighter inside own home' in advice over joining UFC

Speaking during a Q&A for a MISK talk, the 30-year-old has sparked uproar after he claimed that budding females wishing to become fighters should stay at home.

Khabib – who beat Conor McGregor in Las Vegas in October – was asked by a member of the audience on what advice he would give to a woman who wants to get into the fighting industry.

After an applause from the crowd, the Eagle said: "For females, I have very good advice, be fighter inside your home.

As laughter erupts from certain attendees, he added: "And one more advice, all the time, finish your husband."

His comments instantly sent social media into meltdown, with one tweeting: "This is embarrasing (sic). Honestly. And a bunch of morons laughing. The UFC champ ladies and gentlemen."

While another commented: "Khabib's comments sound like something from 50 years ago.."

Another said: "Khabib is a clown. He ain’t keeping anyone in the kitchen."

One person simply stated: "What an absolute disgrace."

While another quipped: "Khabib just triggered every single feminist on the planet."

Khabib – who is currently on a world tour – took to Instagram after the event, where he said: "Thank you so much my dear fans from Saudi Arabia.

"This communication was a great experience for me. See you next time."

The 27-0 fighter has called for a boxing clash against Floyd Mayweather, having been suspended by the UFC following the post-fight brawl after he beat McGregor.

While a bout against Tony Ferguson could be his next fight inside the Octagon.
