UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey explained her thoughts in her interview with AXS TV’s Inside MMA about the transgender fighter Fallon Fox’s participation in UFC’s women’s division. According to her interview with mmajunkies.com, she expressed her concern about the unfair advantage Fox would have over other female competitors:
“I think it needs to be case-by-case basis,” she said. “On Fallon Fox’s case, she went through puberty entirely as a man, and though I do believe that her identity definitely is that of a woman, at this point in her life, it’s just not scientifically possible to make her body exactly equal to that as a woman.
“I don’t think you should be able to compete as a woman. … Just the bone density and bone structure you have after you’ve gone through puberty as a man, it’s just an advantage over a woman.”
“She can try hormones, chop her pecker off, but it’s still the same bone structure a man has,” Rousey told the Post. “It’s an advantage. I don’t think it’s fair.” mmajunkies.com.
Although her comments are not like Matt Mitrione’s, who was suspended by the UFC for his derisive and caustic comments about Fox, It appears that Matt Mitrione has a simpatico in Ronda Rousey.
