Joe Rogan said it has been studied and pretty much proven that Men are born with a 10% better reaction time. Women's hip structure also hurts their technique in throwing kicks.

That Tennis player that did this in the 70s sucked as a man on the men's tour. Once he did the sex change and "became a woman" she then did very well on the woman's tour. And that is TENNIS!

I'm sort of sick of these activists getting all bent out of shape and having to defend to no end on any subject. No one has a problem with her lifestyle. But to see that there are clear mechanical advantages beyond hormones is clear to see for anyone that isn't being a ridiculous person.

Yep, most ignorant thing I've read on MMAF in the four years I've been here.


I do agree with Cain here though. It's unfortunate that Fallon wanted to be an MMA fighter and a woman, but born a man. Her muscles won't develop like a man any more but her bone density stays the same as it was, which is an unfair advantage in a brutal combat sport.

If I was a woman in WMMA, I wouldn't want my opponent to be a former man who is a Navy veteran, honestly.

Besides the fact that I thought it would be hilarious if KenFlo dropped to 135, wore a wig, and faced Rousey for the title and lost, because he can't win a title fight, this transgender thing is ridiculous. I believe in rights for the LGBT, but for a transgender to compete in a sport as dangerous as MMA... ******* come on.

This is such a small slice of the population, that no one should care, but we see this shit on the front page of junkie?! Imagine if a top level MMA fighter decided to suddenly get a sex change. Donald Cerrone figures instead of being a cowboy he wants to be a cowgirl, how are those fights going to go?

I just want to say I love that you chose Cowboy as your example. All of these threads have definitely made me rethink things and I still maintain from a personal experience perspective that a lot more changes than the average person realizes, however I do believe that it is too slippery of a slope at the moment. I say leave it up to the commission

Cain has no medical credential, no one weighing in on this has a medical credential to judge one way or another, the commission is gonna do what it's gonna do. If WMMA fighters want to fight Fox they will, if they don't then they wont...

...simple as!
