    Default Miesha Tate would not fight transgender fighter Fallon Fox

    Miesha Tate would not fight transgender fighter Fallon Fox - Bloody Elbow


    On Monday, potential UFC Women's Bantamweight contender Miesha tate gave her thoughts to ESPN.com:

    "I wouldn't do it," Tate told ESPN.com. "If there was solid research that [proved] she's 100 percent like a female, then I might consider it.

    "I have nothing against transgender people. You should live your life however you want. It's about fighter safety. I wouldn't feel comfortable getting in with someone who is a woman but developed as a man. I just don't think it would be safe."
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    I'd feel so awkward even having to answer this question if I were Tate. She responded well though. And I don't blame her for not wanting that fight.

    I agree with her 100% and I think this sets a bad precedent in sports

    I don't blame her a bit.

    Unfortunately, I was watching MMA Hour [I believe] and they asked a group of people at the show their thoughts. Everyone seemed so eager to be progressive and support the transgender person fighting females. Just a scan of the crowd told me that no one had experience in any field of athletics.

    And it will be that type of group that pushes the mainstream view of "why shouldn't a full grown man change sexes and fight women."
