Fallon Fox: I shouldn't have to disclose my former sex
Transgendered female fighter Fallon Fox recently appeared on AXS TV's "Inside MMA" and made some controversial statements.
"I don't believe a transgender fighter should have to disclose her personal medical history to other female fighters before they fight," said Fox. "It's simply for the reason the medical community and the scientific community have come to the consensus that post-operative transsexual fighters who have been on hormone-replacement therapy and testosterone suppression, when they're going from male to female, haven't been found to have any physiological advantages over other women.
"So why should we have to disclose our personal medical history?"
"Some fighters have already said they would not want to fight me. I think that's because they're scared, No. 1, because I'm pretty good. Or they might just have a bias or they might just be a hate-filled person who doesn't want to touch me or whatever. But I don't want to fight those people anyway because they're scared, so what kind of fight would that be?"
