Fallon Fox has received plenty of attention because she is the first openly admitted transgender athlete in mixed martial arts in the United Stated. Fighters like Matt Mitrione have publicly spoke about their opinions of Fox and Rousey recently discussed her feelings in regards to Fallon Fox with the New York Post.
“She can try hormones, chop her pecker off, but it’s still the same bone structure a man has.” It’s an advantage. I don’t think it’s fair.”, said Rousey.
She also discussed her understanding of why the UFC was frustrated and suspended Mitrione.
“I understand the UFC doesn’t want to be associated with views like (Mitrione’s). I’m also glad they didn’t straight cut him.”
Here is another excerpt about Fallon.
“It’s not something that happened to her. It was decision she made. She should be aware in her career after that, it’s going to be an arduous path. I don’t know why she’s surprised by that. It’s going to draw a lot of emotions.”
In regards to her fighting in the UFC, she had no problem speaking her mind.
“What if she became UFC Champion and we had a transgender women’s champion? It’s a very socially difficult situation.”
