Transgender Fighter Fallon Fox Says She Has the Disadvantage

In a recent appearance on Inside MMA, transgender fighter Fallon Fox stated that when she steps into the cage with her opponents, she is the one at a disadvantage.

 

Over the past few months, many have commented on the unfair advantage they perceived Fox to hold over her opponents.  Ranging from the tirade of Matt Mitrione to the support from the Championship Fighting Alliance under which Fox fights.  A number of female mixed martial artists also weighed in, with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate stating that Fox holds an unfair advantage.

 

This past weekend, however, Inside MMA spoke with Fox on the matter.  The fighter stated that the hormone therapy she has completed and continues to do puts her body at a sizeable disadvantage to her opponents.

 

“I’m actually at a disadvantage.  Before the surgery, I started hormone replacement… back in 2002, 2003… If I don’t take estrogen hormone replacement therapy, I can get osteoporosis.  So any of the women I’m compteting against, my testosterone levels are drastically lower than theirs; it’s almost nothing.”

 

About the surgery and the therapy, Fox added, “You remove that ability for the body to create large amounts of testosterone.”

 

Dr. Marci Bowers also spoke to Inside MMA.  Dr. Bowers is a gender-reassignment surgeon who has undergone the surgery herself.  She said of Fox, “If you measure her endurance and her strength, it’s actually that of a comparable woman of the same age.  What happens is after surgery patients actually regress in that their bone density drops to what a comparable woman of her size would be.

 

“When you test her, she’s going to come out with low testosterone levels and muscle mass that is remarkably similar to her counterparts.”

 

Fox is set to fight Allana Jones at CFA 11 this Friday, May 24, in Miami, Florida.

    “You remove that ability for the body to create large amounts of testosterone.”
    The Cutting off of one’s balls tend to do that…

    Cheaters will usually say they are not cheating. Most people will say thing to serve their own interest. I don’t think we can take Foxx’s words at face value. Look at her; their is no way her muscle mass is less than most of her opponents.

  3. Sneak James says:

    I see a man in a two piece bathing suit…. You can try all you want Mr. Fox but the picture paints all the words.

  4. john merkle says:

    he was a man till 30 something she should fight other transgender men not a women that is crazy that they let it happen.

  5. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Bullshit story. Yeah a disadvantage…Just look at his physique. GTFOH!

    I’m all for freedom to do what you want with your own body, but this is affecting others in a very bad way. He’s doing a deskjob he’s beating up women for a living ffs!

  6. Marty Mckie says:

    I’ll fight her she looks like a girl and I fight one. Think it would be an even match up, bring it Fallon.

  7. joe hogan says:

    Derrick Marrero maybe you should STFU and cut your balls off and hang them on both your ears you fag!
    he was born a man!

    I think that that fight world has taken itself to an all time low when they let men dressed like women into the ring to help appease the political correctness of the men calling themselves “transgender”. Call them what they are, “sodomites”. I do not nor will not support the faggots in swimwear that want to be like, dress like and look like a woman. If that’s the case, keep it to yourself and don’t subject my children to it because they like MMA and now they have to look at your homo ass prancing around in your little skimpy bikini beating on other “real” women…Ooohh your really tuff.

    What a sad day for MMA. Fighters and people should protest and stop this nonsense. What has our country come to? It’s bad enough that they are persecuting the preachers for preaching against the homos, but now people don’t even say anything when they come into the fight game. Well, I will…….And if you support something like this, your just as a low life as they are….
