Fallon Fox’s Response to Matt Mitrione’s Rant


Transgender fighter Fallon Fox has been hit with some horrible backlash from fighter Matt Mitrione this past week.

Fox has responded to these comments made my Mitrione  on her Facebook Fan page.

“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. His comments do not reflect the spirit of our sport, where most competitors uphold values like respect and dignity.”

Mitrione, as most know already, has been suspended on violating code of conduct.

Fox’s investigation by Florida officials was closed letting Fox compete in her next fight on May 24. The investigation came about when Fox left out the part that she was born a male. After all the slack that has come from this, it’s likely Fox will stick to NOT withholding information like that anymore.

    I don’t care if he or she has taken hormones to be more womanly, you still have the physical makeup of a man and the bones of a man, that’s an unfair advantage and dangerous to women

    • We are actually working on a story to cover this in more depth. Some doctors have claimed after 6 years all things should be equal, others disagree. There should be some science to put an end to the debate (at least on bone structure).

        Awesome! I watch Sports Science on ESPN and always wished there was an MMA version of it, and you guys are doing that!

        • Yes indeed! In fact we are working on an even more exciting project which I will not mention until it is ready. However it is going to be fun, and informative science which is quite difficult to find anywhere else! 🙂

            Awesome! I’ll have to keep an eye out for that in the future, I know from the research I’ve done I came to a similar conclusion as Ronda Rousey in that it is an advantage, but I want to hear doctor’s views.

  • I think that if you want to be a guy or used to be a guy you should fight guys.

    • That’s what Nang Thoom did in Thailand.
