Joe Rogan, the voice of the UFC, has taken his stand against letting transgendered MMA fighter Fallon Fox fight women.
“She calls herself a woman, but I tend to disagree,” Rogan said during his podcast, TMZ reported.
“She used to be a man, but now she has had, she’s a transgender which is [the] official term that means you’ve gone through it, right?,” he added. “And she wants to be able to fight women in MMA. I say no f***ing way.”
He then continued with his explicit language, saying that once she was born a male, her body structure would forever be a male’s.
“You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f***ing man. That’s a man, okay?”
Fox was born a male, making her the first transgendered martial arts athlete, CBC Canada noted.
She had been struggling to keep her identity hidden until now, and despite Rogan’s stance, said that she believes she should be allowed to fight women in the ring.
