Cris Cyborg defends Fallon Fox right to fight


Cristiane Santos reaffirmed Wednesday that she'll fight anyone in a cage, so long as they can get licensed by a commission. So Fallon Fox, the male-to-female transgender fighter, has at least one known woman willing to give her a shot.

"She wants to be a girl. I don't agree," said Santos, who returns to fighting at Invicta 5 on April 5. "I think you're born a girl, you're a girl. You're born a guy, you're a guy. But I don't choose opponents. The commission needs to check and make sure she doesn't have testosterone.

"I'm not going to judge other people. If the commission says she can fight, why not?"

Santos said she understands what Fox must be going through.

"People tell me on Twitter: 'I think you have a d---.'" said Santos. "A lot of bad things, they say. I think people have a small mind."

"They don't think a girl can punch hard like a man. I think people are ignorant. People are stupid. I don't want to be the same as people who do that."

cyborg is so fucking dumb its incredible, "people say mean things, that I have a dick, they dont think women can hit hard like man, people have small minds" Yes im sure it has nothing to do with a failed drug test, people are just hateful towards homosexuals, transgenders and muscular women.

At least she's not a hypocrite. She'd probably fight Mighty Mouse if the commission allowed it. She doesn't give a shit. I like that

Cyborg has a lot of haters out there, but she also has a strong fan base that should keep her motivated. I think she is a Hell of a fighter, and can't wait til her next match.
