[VIDEO] Fallon Fox Says She is at a Disadvantage Competing in Women’s MMA

No, really. She said that.

I won’t go into more than has been written on this site on the subject of Fallon Fox, the first openly transgender MMA fighter, who was born a man and then underwent (and continues to undergo) hormone treatments and surgery to change her sex, but you definitely need to watch the video above.

AXS TV Fights recently interviewed Fox. During that conversation, Fox was asked if she felt she had an advantage over her opponents in Women’s MMA who were, you know, born women. Fallon went further than saying that she and her opponents were equally matched — she assured that she was, in fact, at a disadvantage.

If I know anything about the CagePotato audience, you probably stopped reading right there, so I will see you and your outrage in the comments section.

Should you decide to keep reading, however, you should know that that claim wasn’t specifically followed up on or supported, per se, but AXS did bring a medical doctor on the show to discuss Fox and others that undergo similar treatments and surgeries. It is fascinating to learn that at least some medical minds maintain with absolute certainty that someone like Fox not only will have about the same or less amount of testosterone in her system than the women she fights, but also that her very bone structure and muscle mass should also be about the same as theirs.

Things like bone density and muscle mass have been some of the main criticisms of Fox being allowed to compete against fighters born as women so it is noteworthy that critics’ taken-for-granted “facts” are at least quite open to debate.

What do you think, Nation? Is Fox pushing it a bit saying that she’s at a disadvantage? OR HAS THE WHOLE WORLD GONE CRAZY?!

First of all, if you have a problem with transgendered people in general, fuck you, you live in the wrong century. Time to grow the fuck up and let people live their own lives. Second, when this story first came out I wondered if she would have competitive advantage. If she did, that would be a problem. Expert doctors that were not her doctors weighed in with evidence and settled that issue. I consider it settled. Move on.

How do you get a gay man to start fucking women?

Take a shit in their pussies.

(I stole that from Jimmy Carr but he said he stole it from someone else.)

Its hands aren't going to get smaller, so it will have an advantage with wrist control and punches. What about it's jaw? Could be larger and take a better shot than a real woman's...

So, her doctor, who underwent gender reassignment too say... I stopped listening and could only think how many fucking man women are out there walking around. Being single is some terrifying shit. You poor bastards.

I love Bas and his body language! He scratches his nose like he is going to sneeze "bullshit!" But he turns his face from the camera and decides not to. Then with the big eyes of "everyone in the commission is an idiot" look, he says, well it must be true if the commission says so. Ya, and everything on the internet is true too.

She does have the advantage of more training time because it doesn't take her 90 minutes to park the car at the gym.
algiersheadkick504- May 21, 2013 at 3:07 pm
My god please...what's next she will be in the next issue of playboy

Also, I had a contractor-dude like this assigned to me in Afghanistan. Every night our generator would die because this guy had to power up this jackhammer thingy to keep his gaping twat open. Also, he had to have his own "wet CHU" because neither gender wanted him in their shitter.

Wonder if this disadvantage is that he can no longer use his dick to gouge eyes while on top in a Crucifix....
DARKHORSE06- May 21, 2013 at 2:44 pm
Attention CP! Stop talking about this dude and he will just disappear...like his dick! Heyo!

Weird Franken-science aside, men have larger hearts and lungs than women. Men also have thicker, oilier skin than women due to higher collagen. And of course they have less body fat, due to the fact women give birth to kids and men can't. So if having better lung capacity, tougher skin and being bale to cut weight more easily than herm opponents isn't an advantage to Foxy Fallon... Maybe she needs know the meaning of 'advantage'.

Wasn't your last article on this a giant complaint about how we should stop bringing it up?
crappiefloper- May 21, 2013 at 2:09 pm
