I'm not saying Jones was full of shit, but it seemed that general pronouns were the 'safe' way to talk,
plus he said he was a 'fan of that person', without really saying if he thought it was ok for a transgender man to fight women. He didn't really talk about the real issue of the controversy and it seemed more of a PR service
But unless Jones is talking about what he thinks of 'that person', he's just talking about what someone else said, which is kind of skirting around the issue,
Yes it's a weird touchy subject I feel the commission should of explained better before the PERSON was allowed to fight women.
My take is if your not allowed to take roids why would you be allowed to take stuff to make women things appear and be allowed to fight.
Generally the problem isn't what the person did to there body but coming from a man and trying to fight women. Right or wrong thats how I see it
even if she did get a "doctor" to sign off on it doesnt make it okay in my book. There are so many doctors out there that do and say things that completely contradict what another doctor says.
In a situation like this Doctor 1 could say that Fox is a women and has done all of the things needed to be called a women.
Doctor 2 could say with all do respect to doctor 1, my personal findings say other wise and so on an s forth.
Im going to stick with what ive said from the begining; this is wrong and i dont support it one bit.
On a side note; im a jones fan but Mitrione is not a scumbag for the comments he made. He feels strongly on the situation and voiced it, all be it in a way the UFC didnt like. But one may also argue that a person who gets a DUI and crashes his car into a pole with 2 women who were not his wife/baby momma to be a scumbag as well. This is why Jones needs to keep quiet when asked about situations that dont involve him. Just say no comment and onto the next one.
I just feel like this chick is catching a lot of flack from people on this board.
Fox can live as a Woman, but has to take medications to be a woman, how is that different than unapproved TRT?
how many of us gave women fighters shit for testing positive for PEDs? Like Cyborg Santos?
I'm all for acceptance and equal opportunities, Women and LBGT individuals should be able to compete WITH Men, IMO, from racing to basketball, to baseball, if they can compete and out perform someone who tried out as well
But not combat sports (boxing, kickboxing, or MMA), or Hockey
From a guy with a DUIQuote:
"I think he's terrible for that," Jones said. "It's ridiculous. I think Fallon Fox, that's a strong person. Despite what the person has been through in their life, that's a strong person. I'm a fan of that person because of what they've gone through and what they're willing to go through.
"People like Matt Mitrione are scumbags. He's a scumbag. I don't care if he's off suspension or doesn't fight again. He's a ridiculous person."
"He needs to shut his mouth," Jones said. "That's how I feel about that kid. He's scum
He is arrogant and needs to see the reak world
wake up u broke the law....he did not
