Matt Mitrione may have a new target in mind, but he is offering up a sincere apology to the one he previously attacked.
Following his win earlier this month, Mitrione sounded off on transgender fighter Fallon Fox. Now, in an interview with MMAjunkie.com, he is expressing his emotions through an apology.
“I want to apologize for my hurtful comments about Fallon Fox and a group within our society which, in truth, I know nothing about,” Mitrione said. “I know now there’s an important line between expressing an opinion on a subject and being hurtful and insensitive. I crossed that line.”
Mitrione (6-2) had his contract froze and was fined. He will return to action later this year against Brendan Schaub at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga.
