UFC Champion Velasquez: Fallon Fox shouldn’t be allowed to fight
While some of Fox’s contemporaries, including former Strikeforce champion Cris “Cyborg” Santos and UFC fighter Julie Kedzie, have voiced support for Fox’s cause, several notable figures within the sport, including UFC ringside announcer Joe Rogan and UFC bantamweight contender Miesha Tate, have staunchly opposed the idea of a former man fighting women.
UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez falls into the latter category.
“I don’t think she should be able to fight women,” Velasquez flatly responded when asked about Fox at a recent media luncheon.
“Having the same bone structure and everything else as a man, I think definitely does give her an advantage.”
