Transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox has responded to Ronda Rousey stating that she would not want to fight her due to Fox having the unfair advantage of going through puberty as a man.
Fox has since responded to Rousey’s “ridiculous” arguments with a statement on Facebook:
“First, I really wish Ronda would stop with the ridiculous bone structure arguments. That was so last year. Second, she should tell her boss to put me in that octagon over there at UFC. I’m quite sure that there are quite a few female MMA fighters who have guts to fight another skilled woman without peeing their panties and saying “No, I wouldn’t fight her!”. I think they may be a little more mentally tough and say, “I’ll fight a trans woman, just like I’ll fight a lesbian woman or a black woman.” Etc. They may throw all kinds of backwards bogus bone density or bone structure arguments in it to possibly save face if they loose – because they sense that people are ignorant on bones within sport. But, at least some of them are the real deal in the way of fighting.”
“Ronda Rousey may not be right about what advantages she thinks that I have. But, at least she isn’t mentally weak!”
“And wait… Does that mean that makes Ronda more tough than Meisha Tate? Because Meisha Tate recently said… Oh… Well, I’ll just let you all dig to find that one.”
Fox is referring to Tate going on the record saying that she wouldn’t fight Fox because fighting a woman who developed as a man isn’t ‘safe’.
