Mitrione’s Disgust For Transgendered Fallon Fox Forced UFC To Suspend His Contract

Yesterday UFC heavyweight fighter, Matt Mitrione, appeared on “The MMA Hour” and while on the air gave his thoughts on transgendered fighter, Fallon Fox.

“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. 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 woman that’s fighting him, props to you. I hope you beat his ass, and I hope he gets blackballed and never fights again, because that’s disgusting and I’m appalled by that.”

When the UFC was informed of his statement, they immediately took action, suspending his contract and releasing this statement to

“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.”

    what he said is true right? they must have been looking for an excuse to get rid of him.

  2. hanibal says:

    that’s fucked up!!

  3. Rodriguez says:

    I actually had to read this story on yahoo…this site is starting to get news late. Anyway, I agree with him. It’s basically a man beating up women and it’s disgusting.

    • GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:

      Guyborg is more man than fallon Fox ever was and both should be banned from fighting “REAL” normal woman. I may have not been a big matt mitrione fan before but I am now. Good call brother you hit the nail on the head. I think Fallon Fox and Guyborg both belong in the circus as side show FREAKS. Guyborg is more mountain gorilla than woman. God is up there just shaking his head in disgust at both of them

  4. Texas says:

    I agree with Matt. We live in a world where you can’t criticize anybody. UFC is wrong on this one.

    • kong says:

      i agree. it’s like a person can’t even say what they really think anymore, the world is full of pussys, i hope he sticks to what he said instead of coming out apologizing

      • I Heard... says:

        …that you are a pussy. Hypocritical pussy, Dong sucker. Yah I heard that from ….

        • I Heard says:

          That offends me because I am a tranny. People like kong don’t understand us and yes we do become females with the right medication.

        • I Heard... says:

          …that kong IS THE IMPERSONATOR on bjpenn…that’s what I Heard….

        • Kong says:

          What’s ur problem on here slandering me. I don’t know if ur a tranny or just a stupid prick or both but it ain’t me son. I guess someone else thinks ur a dumbass too.

  5. Mike says:

    Mitrione is not smashing this persons decision to become a transgender person in general… he is disgusted that a man would become transgender and then fight women. I get the impression that if this person were a secretary, or even a construction worker, Mitrione would not give two craps.

    • Zagalote says:

      Totally agree with you mate. Hes just talking about the fact that guy is going to beat women…i hope not :)
      Matt didnt said anything wrong…

    • Alapai808 says:

      I totally agree with you! He is not disgracing the LGBT community, his concern is more towards the women Fox will be fighting. I’m a huge supporter of LGBT, but understand his side and must say I agree with him.

  6. drew says:

    matt is right….fallon fox is a man….the body of a man….he should fight men….he beats up women because the 31 year old bitch cant handle a fight with a real man….if the ufc signs and if i was ronda i would boycott the fight bysimply saying “I DONT FIGHT MEN IN A WOMENS DIVISION OF MMA”

  7. aron says:

    so now society is siding with LGBT community over the freakin constitution and freedom of speech? Are you serious right now?

  8. Mike says:

    Actually this story doesn’t have his whole quote. He’s mostly suspended for his comments calling Fallon Fox a liar, a sicko, and a sociopath. He went past fact or opinion and went on a hate rant.

    • Dee says:


      • Mike says:

        Men also need to learn to deal with the consequences and take it on the chin. It was his right to say these things, yes. But he signed a contract with a code of conduct and he violated that. Now he suffers the consequences.

  9. Superasia says:

    Yup. if the ufc kicks Matt.

    Then Put on Barao Vs Rousey. See how you feel.

  10. Skunk says:

    I agree with him. This woman beater should be banned. Shame on ufc

  11. Somebody Great says:

    So.. what.. are they going to suspend Joe Rogan too, because of the shit he’s said on his podcast? I don’t get it. You say something absolutely true, albeit a little harsh, and you get crucified.

    How about Fallon Fox gets imprisoned for beating women? Hows that shit.

  12. Doberman says:

    Mitrione, it is nice to see a man with some balls.. Screw the LGBT’s !! They are a bunch of freaks and an abomination to mankind.. They are trying to force their demented crap down our throats so we quit gagging on it and finally accept it.. Not Going To Happen !!! Fallon is a mentally sic freak and should crawl back into his hole and quit embarrassing true warriors of this sport !!

  13. GRT 3000 says:

    I support Fallon Fox. Shame on you Matt!

    • Dan Jenkins says:

      +1000 !

    • Sean says:

      Then support him/her in something that doesn’t involve taking a huge physical advantage into a violent sport where people, in this case women, get hurt. This is a man fighting a woman. In an effort to support “someone” you’re really alienating all women. If tranny men are allowed to fight women, naturally-born women fighters will be out of a job because tranny men will dominate women. The shame is on you GRT! Support our women!!

  14. Anthony Sinclair says:

    Not sure where I stand on this issue, because I’m not an expert, and will not take the time to delve further into this. But I can see most people have a one sided, ugly opinion that is honestly nothing short of pathetic. Take the time to look at the other side to every argument before you start spewing ignorance and discredit your own decency and the decency of all MMA fans, and the organization as well.

    By the way, just in case you fail to take the time to read this link and the others similar, there IS transgendered policy for competitors in the Olympics.

    I don’t disagree with Mitrione’s suspension, professionalism is required in any organization. He could’ve stated his opinion on say a personal blog or something instead though, and if he did, and still received suspension, then I would disagree.

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Dumbass, you put in a link to back up your argument called transadvocate, and you think people are going to believe it is unbiased??? People used to think the earth was flat too. You actually think taking artificial estrogen and cutting your balls off transforms someone?

  15. do as i say not as i do says:

    So when will Dana be suspended for his repeated use of the word fag in the past or all of his cussing since this is the new PC UFC

  16. Stephanie Wells says:

    I completely agree with Mitrione, but no one is slandering transgenders at all…they are just talking about the fact the Fallon is a man who wants to be a woman, but isn’t and is wanting to beat up women..whether or not he was in the right for voicing his “opinion” which is his right, isn’t the issue…he is just trying to speak up for the “real” women of the UFC…

  17. Sasquatch says:

    MITRIONE FTW!!… that man just gained a fan!

  18. KIDD433 says:

    Well said Mitrione.

  19. Plowboy says:

    Let’s just hope Meathead sticks to his guns and doesn’t apologize for what he said. There are not enough people with principles in this day and age.

  20. whatever says:

    I think its all going too far…trans gender/sexual…if you were born a man….ur a man..nomatter how you mutilate your self..and taking drugs and cutting off your “man hood” dont make you a female….reproducing does!

  21. Kakaroto says:

    It’s nice to see some people here with some morals and sense of life. We’ve been pushed to like gay people. Because if you don’t then you’re a bad person. But it’s simple as this: if you don’t want your kids to be gay then don’t support it. And I’m not saying if they choose to or if destiny.. Blah blah. Simply if you don’t want them to be like that then just don’t support it. Just the way a kid can get turned into a gang member it can get turned into gay too. It’s all influence… It is the way you raise them but if half the time they see two guys or two lesbos together it makes it harder to guide them the right way. Just saying. Something to think about.

  22. gvd says:

    I think Matt used unfortunate wording which made him sound like he hated the LGBT community. But his argument is justified. I showed this story to my gf who is a strong supporter of LGBT rights and has gay friends, and she found it disturbing a former man could beat up women. There are things you can’t unlearn about living for 30 years as a man. That’s why when you watch women fight they’re in no league to men (except cyborg, and she was juicing like crazy).

  23. GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:


    Guyborg and Fallon Fox are FREAKS. If the shoe fits wear it.

    Rogan says worse crap about people every single day on his podcast while he is all f’ucked up on weed.

  24. Mayor of Deviance says:

    Holy fucking shit. I’m saving a screenshot of this page. What the fuck… This article was designed for trolling, I’m sure, and I knew MMA had some ignorant redneck fans…. but holy shit… Extremely homophobic, even sexist with remarks like “a tranny on roids would kill rousey” like a woman of her caliber could never hope to beat a man ever.

    Talk about people needing morals, you sick fucks need to take a step back and examine your own. I can’t even get into how wrong you people are because you’re probably too set in your ways or too stubborn to comprehend all that is wrong with what has been said in this article. I am in shock at you community. Total fucking shock.

    • Hulk Smash says:

      Yet you just stereotyped everyone as Rednecks that disagrees with you. Dumbass. Go read the LGBT forums if you don’t want our opinions.

      • Mayor of Deviance says:

        I did not say I didn’t want your opinions, nor did I stereotype everyone as rednecks. I said I knew there were redneck fans, but you went above and beyond what rednecks do. I DID call you all sick fucks though and I’d like you to express your opinion with more intelligence and understanding. Total fucking shock at the unanimity of opinions here from fans of my favorite sport.

        • Plowboy says:

          I assume you want us to express our opinion with intelligence and understanding the same way you just did? I’ll follow your lead on that one, but I’ll refrain from the profanity and name calling. You make a compelling argument for your case with that vocabulary.

          Oh, and my neck is as red as my blood.

  25. LaieBOI says:

    THats bullshit, then the UFC should suspend Dana White too for all the rants he did in the past. Look how he insulted lauretta Hunt on youtube, it aint a good image and an up to standard for UFC. To much biased and bullshit from the UFC lately. fallon fox has the male body with fake boobs! MItrione is right

  26. Thom says:

    Fallon Fox shouldnt be allowed to fight women on the very simple fact that he’s not a woman. How can people even disagree with this? ”Oh but there’s no real advantages I have bla bla bla”… So? Even if thats true (which it’s not) then you’re still a MAN fighting a WOMAN, and there’s no self respecting MMA organisation that should ever allow that.

  27. doc says:

    This is the progressive America. Fallon Fox is a pathetic human being for doing what he is doing. Beating up on women, knowing damn well he is still mostly man.

    And now the constitution is getting shit on by these lib-tards. No freedom of speech,no rights, welcome to oppression. And most of America thinks Obama is helping them… look at your healthcare reform. Look at your rights. Idiots think that their doing what they want when we are slowly being Hitler-ed…

    UFC is wrong for this. Flat out wrong. I don’t even like Mitrione, but he was fucked hard.

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Yep to everything you wrote.

    • Mayor of Deviance says:

      NOTHING here had anything to do with the government. The UFC&Zuffa are private corporations with guidlines Mitrione violated in their PR’s eyes. There is no one withholding the first amendment here. PRIVATE. CORPORATION. Makes their own rules. Got it?

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        LISTEN UP you Lib-Retard. IN THIS COUNTRY, you can say whatever you want to say. So fukc off. And Yes we DO have First Amendment protection, EVEN from fukcing corporations. Let me give you a little US Constitutional lesson that you fukcing slept through you little Mao dick wad. Mitrione WAS NOT speaking for the UFC corporation, HE WAS speaking for his own opinion. That , you loser, is constitutionally protection by the First Amendment!!! What are you some ignorant drop-out?

  28. Drew says:

    I would like to say What Idiot ask the question right after his fight while he is pumped up?!!!!! Fine that fool and suspend him from asking fighters stupid questions. Ask a real question like, who do you want to fight next or what is your favorite knockout by another fighter? How is it training wherever you are training and last What was your favorite fight of all time. Keep it simple stupid. Rules for interviews. 1. Don’t ask about this situation. you don’t fight in that class and you don’t sign the contract to fight that person. 2. Don’t ask about politics. Volkman that is for you. you might think you could be president but know one is voting for you cuz you got cut. 3. Don’t ask if Chael P. Sonnen deserves a title shot. The answer by most is NO! 4. Who is the greatest mma fighter of all time. I am guessing BJ if you’re anderson silva and anderson silva if you are everyone else. Anyways that is the end of my rant.

    • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

      Correction: Greatest Fighters of all time are 3: Royce because he fought anybody and beat them and BJ and Randy because they were 2 division UFC champs in the toughest divisions the UFC has ever had. Silva WILL NEVER BE the greatest until he can be a 2 division champ. Like that will happen, he’s an old fart now. His time is up.

  29. granpoobah says:

    This guy got suspended for voicing his opinion? Something just isn’t right with that, no matter if its not what the UFC wants, he didn’t vacate his civil rights just because he fights for the UFC, just doesn’t seem right.

  30. Slim Charles says:

    this guy is so stupid… why would you put yourself out there like that? especially in a profession where everyone is watching you and your every move or comment… meathead is such a fitting name…

  31. Chocho says:

    I knew that once you brought in the wrestlers, the faggggs would not be far behind to claim their spot too… Messing with you wrestlers. Just messing.
