"I don't believe a transgender fighter should have to disclose her personal medical history to other female fighters before they fight," Fox said. "It's simply for the reason the medical community and the scientific community have come to the consensus that post-operative transsexual fighters who have been on hormone-replacement therapy and testosterone suppression, when they're going from male to female, haven't been found to have any physiological advantages over other women. So why should we have to disclose our personal medical history?"
Several prominent figures in the MMA community have come out against Fox having the opportunity to fight women, including UFC color commentator Joe Rogan and Invicta FC champ Carla Esparza.
Others, such as UFC President Dana White, are waiting until the smoke clears to say what athletic commissions have to say about the matter. White thinks Fox is far off from a chance to fight in the UFC, regardless of her gender.
"Some fighters have already said they would not want to fight me," Fox said. "I think that's because they're scared, No. 1, because I'm pretty good. Or they might just have a bias or they might just be a hate-filled person who doesn't want to touch me or whatever. But I don't want to fight those people anyway because they're scared, so what kind of fight would that be?"
Perhaps Invicta FC should just feed her to Ediane Gomes, as "India" famously fought a man once in her homeland of Brazil. Since she has already fought a man, squaring off against a transgender athlete shouldn't be an issue.
