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.
