In a recent interview at the 2023 PHP Gala, Khabib Nurmagomedov, the former UFC lightweight champion, shared his perspectives on gender, sparking discussions about traditionalism and societal norms. Here’s the full story.
Nurmagomedov, known for his fierce skills and strong cultural ties, discussed his understanding of gender during an engaging conversation with Patrick Bet-David.
There Are Only Two Genders
When asked about the concept of genders in Russia compared to the ‘few hundred’ recognized in the United States, Nurmagomedov responded, “I see only women and men.”
This Is Crazy
He said, “There is no between. This is crazy.”
This perspective, consistent with his background, resonated with the audience and garnered applause.
His Baffling Encounter
The fighter then shared an anecdote about a recent experience in California, where he encountered all-gender restrooms in a coffee shop.
He Was Confused
He expressed his confusion saying, “Two bathrooms – all gender, all gender. What is this? Where do I have to go? It’s the first time I’ve seen this. “
Where Is Man and Woman?
I stared for like, five seconds. “Where is the woman? Where is man?”” he added.
A Very Traditional Family
“I knocked on the door; ‘Is anybody inside?’ I don’t know my brother. I grew up in a very traditional place, with a very traditional family,” he said.
Khabib Lives by His Traditions
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s views are deeply rooted in his upbringing in Dagestan, a region characterized by its strong adherence to traditional values and beliefs.
He proudly identifies himself as a traditionalist and sees his perspective as a product of his environment.
He Is Happy With This
“I am very happy with this. I am from big mountains and we only have two genders,” he said.
Women’s Participation in Combat Sports
The interview also touched on Nurmagomedov’s thoughts regarding women’s participation in combat sports.
He said, “For females, I have very good advice, be a fighter at home.”
Finish Your Husband
After a brief pause he added, “And one more advice, all the time, finish your husband.”
Social Media Users Shared Their Views
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “If you see how hesitant the greatest fighter on earth is to respond to that question… You know we are in big trouble”
Don’t Make MMA Political
Another User wrote, “You can take someone out the streets, but you can’t take the streets out of that person. The same applies to him, he is from a different origin, culture, mindset, and beliefs & that’s okay. Let’s not make MMA political. We care about people’s abilities in the cage, and don’t divide the MMA community.”
