Cain Velasquez: Fallon Fox shouldn't be able to fight women

http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/3/28...to-fight-women

Quote:
"I don't think she should be able to fight women," Velasquez flatly responded when asked about Fox at a recent media luncheon.

"Having the same bone structure and everything else as a man, I think definitely does give her an advantage."

Fox has already booked her next fight in the semifinals of Championships Fighting Alliance's women's featherweight tournament, a result that seemed dicey as recently as a few weeks ago. The Florida State Boxing Commission continues to review Fox's license, and her opponent, Allana Jones, has yet to sign a bout agreement. However, Fox's camp isn't worried.

"They're not going to have a problem finding an opponent," Fox's manager Brett Atchley recently told Outsports. "Somebody wants to be the one who beats Fallon Fox. And they'll see it as an opportunity to make more money. If Allana Jones doesn't fight, so what? Someone else will."

Regardless, the uncharted waters of Fox's situation continue to leave many observers without a concrete answer, including Velasquez.

"Maybe have a separate [division], I guess," the UFC heavyweight champion finished. "I don't know. But I don't think that's fair."

Surprised to hear Cain chime in at all. I agree though.

Must have caught Cain in a rare talkative moment. I do agree with him but really don't care to see a division devoted to a very rare and specific case like this. People thought a woman's division doesn't have enough contenders, imagine this.

There are a lot of anatomical advantages of having a man's body, even if Fallon has been chemically re-adjusted, it may diminish her muscles to an extent, but it doesn't shrink her man hands, man feet, shoulder width, bone density and other structural advantages the average man's body has over the average woman's body.

Renee Richards was a well known transgender man who competed in women's tennis back in the 70's-80's, but his/her strength, speed, height & size advantages weren't translated to throwing concussive blows at her opponents. I think that's the biggest variable. Fallon isn't winning a running race, tennis match or basketball game, she's throwing her man body parts against a women's face. That's just my opinion.

What are these anatomical advantages people speak of? Just a few weeks ago before the Rousey fight, everybody was saying how men and women are completely the same and therefore people who don't want to watch women are haters...

This shouldn't even be a topic of discussion as much as it is. Plain and simple they should not be allowed to fight women. They have a distinct advantage and can hurt someone. People who are in favor of this are usually other gays or transgenders that start calling people opposed to this homophobes and stuff or ignorant. Its ridiculous and should not be allowed. Im all for people doing what they want voted for gay marriage on the last ballet but when your endangering others its not cool.

LMFAO.

I remember that discussion. What an asinine, asinine display of political correctness.
