UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has found himself in the middle of a sexism storm over comments he made to an audience member in Saudi Arabia.

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

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

After an applause from the crowd, he 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.

“This is embarrasing (sic). Honestly. And a bunch of morons laughing. The UFC champ ladies and gentlemen,” one user wrote on Twitter.

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.”

Another quipped: “Khabib just triggered every single feminist on the planet.”

Nurmagomedov, 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.

A bout against former lightweight champion Tony Ferguson could be his next fight inside the Octagon.
