Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

UFC Suspends Matt Mitrione for “Offensive and Wholly Unacceptable” Comments About Fallon Fox

Despite being fresh off of a nineteen-second knockout victory over Philip De Fries at last weekend’s UFC on FUEL TV 9, it may be a while before we see Matt Mitrione in the Octagon again.

Earlier today, Mitrione was a guest on The MMA Hour, where he wrapped up his appearance with some jokes he had prepared for host Ariel Helwani. He started off with a joke about Aleksander Emelianenko’s unretirement, a joke about how he considered finishing De Fries – a Llyod Irvin student – with a rape choke, and a joke about how transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox should call herself “The Queen of the Buffaloes” in reference to “Silence of the Lambs.

If he just stopped there, we probably wouldn’t even be talking about his appearance on the show, but he wasn’t done making jokes at Fallon’s expense just yet.

“Holy shit, I have not seen a man beat a woman like that since Chris Brown beat Rihanna. That is exceptional how he just beats innocent, unknowing women like that. Incredible,” Mitrione continued. “Since he’s obviously looking for any way to break or avoid the rules regarding fighting, if he ever fights again – which I hope he doesn’t – but if he ever fights again and loses to a woman, is he going to charge that woman with a hate crime because she imposing on his freedom as a tranny?”

At this point, Ariel Helwani intervened to ask Mitrione why he kept referring to Fallon Fox as a man. This resulted on a fairly heated rant from Meathead, which we have video of after the jump.


Props: MMAFighting.com

“Because she’s not a he. He’s a he. He’s chromosomally a man. He had a gender change, not a sex change. He’s still a man. He was a man for 31 years. Thirty-one years. That’s a couple years younger than I am. He’s a man. Six years of taking performance de-hancing drugs, you think is going to change all that? That’s ridiculous. That is a lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak, and I mean that because you lied on your license to beat up women. That’s disgusting. You should be embarrassed yourself. And the fact that Florida licensed him because California licensed him or whoever the hell did it, it’s an embarrassment to us as fighters, as a sport, and we all should protest that.”

The UFC reacted quickly to Mitrione’s rant, suspending Matt Mitrione and issuing the following statement on their website earlier today:

The UFC was appalled by the transphobic comments made by heavyweight Matt Mitrione today in an interview on the ‘MMA Hour.’

The organization finds Mr. Mitrione’s comments offensive and wholly unacceptable and — as a direct result of this significant breach of the UFC’s code of conduct – Mr. Mitrione’s UFC contract has been suspended and the incident is being investigated.

The UFC is a friend and ally of the LGBT community, and expects and requires all 450 of its athletes to treat others with dignity and respect.

Here’s what I took away from this:

- That joke he made about the Lloyd Irvin rape case? Perfectly acceptable; probably because he didn’t tweet it.
- Calling Fallon Fox a man is ignorant and transphobic when Joe Rogan isn’t the one doing it.
- Maybe if he just made a video teaching people how to rape her, he wouldn’t have been suspended.
- I hate to sound like a broken record, but this is exactly why the UFC really needs some sort of policy in place to ensure that fighters know where the line is drawn in terms of what is acceptable and unacceptable to say about an issue and what will happen to them if they cross that line (aside from community service, of course). Or rather, why this policy needs to be evenly enforced among all UFC employees.
- Of course, this is all written under the assumption that Meathead’s suspension will leave him on the shelf for an extended period of time. Time will tell how many months he is actually suspended for.

I can’t be the only one who feels this way, right?

    They should make him tongue kiss Loyd Irvin and call it even. Makes about as much sense as sending there fighters to rehab for weed and giving the ones who test positive for PEDS enough vacation time to get a few more cycles in before returning to competition.

    Noooo, they should make him train at Irvin's in a skirt. And stay 'late' and kiss fox. Whatever, we all said the same thing we did just blunter. Sorry, I'm far from homophobic but I agree a transgender fighting is not a balanced fight.

    Joe rogan, even when he borders on being an asshole in his Fallon Fox rant, still discusses the matter in a fairer way Joe Rogan - Fallon Fox can live as a "woman" and I respect that, but you shouldn't be able to fight chicks Matt Mitrione - Fallon Fox is a lying disgusting sociopath

    what's with these guys that insist on referring to transgendered females as men? Is it because they're idiots or is it some sort of homophobia? Can meathead's little pea-brain only comprehend simple statements like 'XY=man;XX=woman' or is he afraid if he refers to her as a woman, then somehow that means he'll view her as a sexual object and that starts to set off gay alarms in his tiny head?

    Not offended by his statements. He didn't go after her gender. He questioned his heart and pathetic way of beating up women.
  6. BrianMMA Says:

    Mon, 04/08/13 - 08:13


    The UFC has to protect itself with potential 'homosexual-type bashing' considering one of their fighters, Liz Carmouche, is homosexual. They have to do this now despite the fact that she may or may not have been offended. Everyone knows the whole XX vs XX / XY vs. XY argument. Nobody disagrees. But bringing in comments about Chris Brown and Rihanna, while hilarious, are problematic.

    No you can't speak you mind! What do you think this is, America? So yeah, Mitrione was uncouth in the way he expressed his distaste but it wasn't too crazy of an opinion. The man lived for 30 years before Fallon Fox spent 5 years becoming a woman. There are certain realities about a person who makes two conflicting life choices. Fox has achieved a base physique that most women abuse steroids for decades to achieve & she did it by making a lifestyle choice. That alone is grounds for performance enhancement in my apparently bigoted opinion. Be who you want to be but don't use a system of classification to pretend like 3 women, who trained hard & had aspirations of their own, didn't get beat in an excessive manner in which there was no sporting competition.

    It's one thing to say what you feel on CP, but it's extremely MEATHEADish to say that shit on record to the media, while working for the UFC. I agree with what he said, I just don't agree with his timing. Matt you are officially a huge dumb brain-dead goofy fuckwit. I bet he is so damn stupid he had the gall to be shocked and surprised when he found out he was suspended. DURP....learn your role....and shut your hole!

    What the fuck is 'transphobic'? Is that honestly going to be a fucking word now? Really... that's where we're at with this victim-class PC bullshit? Look, I'm fine if some dude wants to tuck his outtie into an innie, and take estrogen until he cries during Katherine Heigl movies. That's his choice. But can we stop with this protected-class bullshit, where everyone needs to be sensitive to whatever odd proclivities some weirdo wants to do with their life? Why can't we just make fun of Mitrione for being a dumb meathead, make fun of Fallon Fox for cutting an extra hole where there weren't none before, and realize that if you want to publicly be a freak, you need to accept that someone might just call you a freak? Get over it, and then go live your life however you want to.

    The UFC holds its fighters to a different standard than Joe. He is a professional comedian/actor/commentator that brings his personality as well as his martials arts knowledge to the commentating job. Although, I do think the UFC is trying too hard to be sensitive about the issue, and other jokes that fighters tweet. These are fighters, they fight, and say dumb shit. I don't think anyone that likes fights gives two shits about his opinion being anything other than that.

    I understand making rape jokes is certainly out of line and should be addressed by the organization you work for, especially if you are a figure head of that organization. But, speaking truth about another fighter who is still a man and is sanctioned to fight women is just moronic. Matt stepped up and said what a lot of fighters were thinking and he gets punished for it. I think the UFC needs to be "investigated" for suspending the contract of a fighter who was using his freedom of speech. He also WAS NOT promoting the UFC during that interview. He is just a fighter employed by the UFC and not doing any promotion speech/acts for the company. Just ignorant... keep kissing the liberal/let's give everyone a trophy who participates because everyone is a winner asses. Stupid

    Why refer to him as a woman? does he have female reproductive organs? no he doesn't... so hes a FREAKING DUDE. It's a dude with no dick that beats up on women... Fallon Fox deserves no respect from anyone. He's a pussy

    damn, you caught me Thumbdick. It couldn't possibly be that I feel I should be respectful to someone who has done nothing wrong to me, or at the very least not go out of my way to be disrespectful to them, just because they feel like they were born the wrong gender. I guess I like to bang trannies because I believe that someone goes so far out of their way to be seen as a woman, going so far as to cut off their testicles, get a vagina and breast implants, and undergo hormone therapy should be called a woman. Is that right thumbdick? Is that how your little rat brain works?

And for those wondering what transphobia is, it's that rage fueled by fear that starts in the bottom of your chest and pushes you to valiantly call someone a dickless freak in the CagePotato comments section.

What they really need to do is strap a pair of gloves on Chaz Bono and make it fight Glover Teixeira, and if it doesn't score a brutal knock out we'll know Glover just beat the living shit out of a woman. Apply that the the phallusless phox situation and you'll finally get that it's a goddamn man beating up a woman. It's not about fear or loathing, it's about someone with a flayed dick tucked inside them brutalizing women.

    You're a moron if you honestly can't see the difference between Rogan's possibly-ignorant, but overall non-hateful opinion on the subject and this guy calling someone a "sick, disgusting freak." I'll defend Miguel Torres Workaholics reference to the grave, but Meathead's a fucking dipshit and I'm glad he got suspended.

    You don't find it a little odd that Fox was male for 30 years then decides to get surgery and her new profession is fighting women? Again she just got this surgery in 2006, 6-7 years of estrogen doesn't erase 30-31 years of being a male. Now was Meathead bullish in his comments? Sure. Does he know for a fact that Fox in sociopath? Of course not. Should he be suspended/fired for them? I don't think so. He wasn't repping the UFC, he wasn't at a fan expo, it wasn't during a fight. He was doing this interview on his own time and for his own benefit. If Brock Lesnar, or Jon Jones would have said this Uncle Dana wouldn't have suspended them. The UFC needs to be more clear with its social media policy. Finally Dana should walk the walk. If the UFC really is a bastion of LGBT rights why doesn't he have Fox headline a PPV against Ronda? If he thinks its a fair fight and Meathead was completely out of line then show it. You know you would want to hear Buffer yell, "AND IN THE BLUE CORNER....THE QUEEN OF SWORDS...."
  39. dranokills Says:

    Tue, 04/09/13 - 08:55


    you are so right he wasn't representing the UFC, gee he wasn't at a fight, no , my gosh. And Jon Jones being drunk and wrecking his car didn't in any way reflect on the UFC, nor did rampage jackson when he went on a ...rampage and run over preggers. nawwww you are so right, my gosh what a loophole you have found. and people on their own personal twitter account they don't rep the UFC when they make rape jokes..........OH WAIT! ,yes...yes they fucking do!!! holy revelations batman!!! they all got into trouble! wait this information thats been around forever and a day just blows your stupid though process right out of the water. wow , everyone BUT you knows better.

Why isn't Ariel asking woman fighters about how they feel about fighting Fox? I also agree with @RWilson about "transphobic" as a word! I guess you can put phobic after any word now to make the person you are calling phobic - defend themselves!

I'm guessing these people aren't going to be their core audience if they gained them only as fans of Carmouche.

    The UFC needs to give its fighters an out on this pretty quickly or they will have more instances like this one. Every fighter is getting asked about this in every interview and its a hot button topic. Once the UFC states what the official policy will be the fighters can point to it and say "This is what the UFC is doing, my opinion on it doesn't matter". I personally STRONGLY disagree with Fallon fighting women. I have a transgendered friend who was born a man, and you can clearly tell the difference in body types to someone born a women. I would have been more PC about it but I agree that its a disgrace to women fighters.

    Yes, he didn't come out and promote the UFC in his rant but the man is associated with them as a main card fighter who most people know him as a UFC fighter, not as a ex-football player or just plain fighter. On top of that, when he reads of his "script" its a UFC labeled paper. Your point is interesting on the freedom of speech firing but that's why they create contracts with these type of guidelines.

    Dano and everyone else is missing the point defending this dudes right to cut off his nuts and live as a women. Great do whatever the fuck you want, but with certain decisions come consequences. You can't always have it all even in the PC bull shit America where everyone just thinks they have the right to do whatever they want all the time. Your imposing on my rights WAAAAA! How about imposing on Matts freedom of speech rights? Oh right he represents the UFC so in doing so he has made a decision to give up certain rights. He can't just shoot of at the mouth like the rest of us here because his job depends on it ( btw nothing he said was wrong). If living as a women was more important than being a pro fighter so be it but why do we have to bend the rules just so someone can have their cake and eat it too. Abraham Lincoln said it best, "How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg? 4, calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg". Flip it, slice it, shred it like a julienne salad, call that dick whatever you want but at the end of the day its still a dick.

    Well said Lex. If he wants to fight he should fight men. I'd imagine his response would be something like "but that isn't fair.. I'm taking performance reducing drugs". Ok, that sounds like a fuckin personal problem to me. Maybe if you want to be a professional athlete you should, I don't know, maybe not spend your free time injecting yourself with drugs that decrease athletic performance? If you'd rather do that, don't fight, but don't do that and then be like "Oh it's cool, I'll just fight women". That's not the godamn solution...

    Question, Did Fallon Fox ever have a fight as a man? No one has ever touched on this that i have seen. Does anyone know if he had any fights as a man?

    GUYBORG is more man than Fallon Fox every was but that doesn't mean either one of them should be fighting (REAL) woman. chopping off ones "D'ick" doesn't not change the bone structure and jawline and male features. Fallon Fox is not a woman plain and simple PERIOD nor is Guyborg vis 10 years of male hormones. Now if these two want get get in a cage with each other that's just fine with me. Back in late 1800's Guyborg and Fallon Fox probably would have shared a cage in the sideshow circus with all the other FREAKS or they would have put them in with the mountain gorillas

    "The UFC is a friend and ally of the LGBT community, and expects and requires all 450 of its athletes to treat others with dignity and respect."...... Says the company who's figure head has spouted gay slurs since his conception lol. I just think its funny the UFC is so quick to kiss the ass of the queers. Since when did we turn from a people who said how they feel to a people who cower their true opinion as to not hurt anyone's feelings? Matt M. just stated how he felt, now he is being punished for exercising his freedom of speech.
