Fallon Fox - Facebook-478x270Transgender fighter Fallon Fox was the subject of an insult laden tirade by UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione during an episode of The MMA Hour on Monday.

Fox responded to Mitrione’s comments via her facebook page on Tuesday.

“Matt Mitrione went well beyond disagreeing with the medical experts who say I should be able to compete as a woman, and personally attacked me as a fighter, as a woman, and as a human being,” she wrote.  “His comments do not reflect the spirit of our sport, where most competitors uphold values like respect and dignity.”

Mitrione was promptly suspended by the UFC for his remarks for violating the company’s recently implemented code of conduct policy.

Last week, Florida officials closed an investigation into Fox’s licensing application, allowing Fox to compete at her next scheduled bout for Championship Fighting Alliance on May 24.

Fox has been the center of controversy for several weeks while her licensing application was being reviewed after she failed to disclose that she was born a male.  Her next opponent is scheduled to be 2-1 fighter Allanna Jones.

Fox is 2-0 in her mixed martial arts career and is coming off a 39-second knockout of Ericka Newsome on March 2.
