    The UFC wasted little time laying down the law on Matt Mitrione, suspending the heavyweight indefinitely for transphobic comments regarding Fallon Fox he made during an interview with Ariel Helwani Monday on "The MMA Hour."

    Fox was born a man and underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2006 and has had two fights as a professional mixed martial artist, winning both.

    Mitrione repeatedly referred to Fox as a he and called her as "a lying, sick, sociopathic disgusting freak."

    This.

    The guy is a fighter, not a poet nor a social activist.

    He can say whatever the fuck he wants and should still be allowed to fight.

    I think this was a wise move by the UFC tbh....it gets enough heat from politicians and feminists as is......they also just recently issued a code of conduct for the UFC fighters....essentially just a PR issue but one that might save it from unneeded wrath.

    Also, Fallon Fox is still genetically a man, therefore, should fight men.

    im not sure why this is an issue. gender, race, and sex are things you are born with. a sex change is a major operation that makes you different by choice. shouldn't be called discrimination at all

    I think it was the word "freak" that got him in trouble. I guess that's a no no word in the discrimination world.

    Threw all the media coverage and the conversations I've had with people, not one single person has stood up for this "he she"
