Transgendered fighter Fallon Fox responds to Matt Mitrione’s comments that she is “a lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak,” for fighting in the women’s division without revealing that she was born and raised to adulthood as a male. Via MMAFighting.

“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.”
