    "George never did wake up. And, even all that talking didn't make death any easier...at least not for us. Maybe, in the end, all you can really hope for is that your last thought is a nice one...even if it's just about the taste of a nice cold beer."

    "Is enlightenment even possible? Or, did I drive by it like a missed exit?"

    It's simpler than you think.

    That's what I like about bodhi - he's got his priorities

    And he knows what sells. There are a lot of ring girl sites.

    Ring girls useless? srsly?

    I only attended one UFC fight and was seated next to the ring girls. They were far from useless from my perspective there.

    'USELESS' Khabib brands UFC octagon girls ‘most unecessary people in martial arts’ in scathing attack questioning their ‘function’

    UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov has launched a scathing attack on octagon girls, branding them 'the most necessary people in martial arts.'

    For decades, scantily clad women have walked around boxing rings and MMA cages between rounds to inform those in attendance of the upcoming stanza.

    The practice, however, has come under scrutiny in recent years, with some labelling it archaic and outdated.

    Former lightweight champion Nurmagomedov is part of that group, saying during a recent press conference: "Look, I don't want to offend anyone. Ring girls are the most unnecessary people in martial arts.

    "What is their function? I have a question: You can show that it's the second round on the screen.

    "There are people who understand martial arts and they are walking. This is my personal opinion, Kamil.

    "I don't want to impose it on you. I think you have your own one about some moments.

    "I think they're the most useless people in martial arts. What function? How?

    "Do they develop the sport? Or do they help people to see that it is the second round now?

    "What are they doing? Tell me, please."

    When it was put to Khabib, now promoting the Eagle Fighting Championships, that ring girls have been embedded in combat sports for decades, he replied: "I realise that this history.

    "History knows many mistakes. We read history to avoid mistakes of the past in the future.

    "If we look at history, it says they are useless. That is my personal opinion.

    "Dana White [UFC president] maybe likes it, maybe you do too. But my name is not Dana, my name is Khabib.

    "Since I am inside this theme, we have already said we will not have such things."

    Nurmagomedov's late father, Abdulmanap, famously stood in front of octagon girl Luciana Andrade as the Eagle gave a brief interview after the ceremonial UFC 242 weigh-ins.

    The Russian has no issue with the ring girls themselves but admits they made him uncomfortable when he attended events with his father.

    He added: "For example, I sit with my father, every person has his own preferences, cultures and values I come to fight night and sit with my father and those people are passing by and showing people that it is the second round.

    "But no one looks at the plate. I feel uncomfortable with my father. I am not against it.

    "If you want you can do it. But don't impose it to me. Do it aside. There are designated place for it.

    "I think we must not mix all of it. This is my private opinion. We develop sport here, first of all.

    "There should be some show elements for sure. People want to come and watch, it is interesting for them."

    The topic is a good example of tradition practice lacks rationality behind it when examined seriously. But most of the times, we do not do so. And we take such practice hangs down to us as the Bible truth that we should follow.
