Matt Mitrione finds himself in trouble with the UFC after making rude comments about transgender fighter Fallon Fox. His UFC contract was suspended as a result and caused out lash from UFC president Dana White.
Fallon Fox has responded by standing her ground that she should be allowed to fight females.
“Matt Mitrione went well beyond disagreeing with the medical experts who say I should be able to compete as a woman, and personally attacked me as a fighter, as a woman, and as a human being,” said Fox to MMA Fighting.
Mitrione was coming off his first win after suffering back-to-back losses when he made the remarks on The MMA Hour.
“His comments do not reflect the spirit of our sport, where most competitors uphold values like respect and dignity,” said Fox.
Fox returns at CFA 11 on May 24 from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL.
