(Oh my…when did they take the gloves off?)
By now, you’re all familiar with the story of - and the controversy behind - transgender MMA fighter, Fallon Fox. Debates on whether or not Fox should be allowed to compete against women in the first place have quickly devolved into both sides lobbing reactionary rants and petty insults at each other – and not just here at Cage Potato.
Naturally, the folks at TMZ.com decided that in these tumultuous times, the world needs Hulk Hogan to be the voice of reason, because even they are affected by slow news days every once in a while. Hogan reminds everyone that in his business, anyone who trains, eats their vitamins and says their prayers is capable of stepping into the ring with him. Yes, Hulk Hogan is now the latest person to declare willingness to compete against Fallon Fox, and he did so with all the enthusiasm you’d expect from a famous aging wrestler being asked questions about a transgender MMA fighter instead of his own career.
“I’ll whip her. I mean I’ll whip him. I’ll whip her…I’m confused. I’ll pin her, submission,” he tells the reporter. Just in case you can’t tell that this is strictly for publicity, “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart chimes in at the end with “If anybody can make money, let’s use ‘em.” It’s somewhere around this point that the entire Fallon Fox controversy officially jumps the shark.
