Ronda Rousey UFC 157 prepress AIt seems nearly everyone inside – and outside – the mixed martial arts world has weighed in on the Fallon Fox transgender issue.

Fox was a man for the first three decades of her life, but then underwent surgical procedures and other treatments to become a transgendered woman. The controversy erupted over whether or not that gives Fox an unfair advantage since she now competes against women in MMA bouts.

Fox has secured finishes in winning all three of her MMA bouts. She won her first fight by submission, the next two by knockout.

Many people talking about the issue have gone off the deep end, ranting and raving about Fox, but UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey held back on giving her opinion until she educated herself on the issue to some degree.

Rousey came to the conclusion that Fox undergoing the transgender procedure in her adult years gives her an unfair advantage when it comes to fight time.

“In Fallon Fox’s case, she went through puberty as a man. Though I do believe her identity is that of a woman, at this point in her life, it’s just not scientifically possible to make her body exactly equal to that of a woman,” explained Rousey in a recent interview with Inside MMA on AXS TV.

“Transgender fighters should be taken on a case-by-case basis, and if you already developed through puberty as a man, you shouldn’t be allowed to fight as a woman.”
