Retired UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov made an outrageous statement about ring girls.  He called them "the most useless people in martial arts."

For obvious reasons ring girls weren't thrilled with his comments.  Ring girl Legend Sara Beverley Jones fired back at Khabib over his comments.

Jones' agency, SBJ Management, is organizing the return of the ring girls in the UK after nearly a two year absence.  Here's what she had to say about Khabib's opinion.

From Daily Star:

And she told Daily Star Sport: "We're all excited to see Ebanie Bridges fight again on this card, as a former ring girl turned boxer we love to support her.

"It also shows the opportunities that can arise from being a ring girl, the opportunities created and the different paths taken.

"I know this has happened in MMA too, former ring card girls turned to training to fight. Khabib has made a comment regarding ring girls in MMA and branded them 'useless' and a 'distraction' from the fight.

"Which seems absurd to me as the girls only ever enter a cage or ring during the interval, so they're not distracting from any fighting taking place.

"It's a great job and a great side earner for lots of women who enjoy doing it. I know many ring girls feel very fortunate for the opportunity to work huge fighting events, such as the Joshua vs Usyk fight coming up."

I couldn't disagree with Khabib more.  Without ring girls how would we know what round the fight was in?  Plus they're hot chicks and hot chicks make everything better.
