White says it's up to the athletic commissions...
UFC President Dana White apeared on the Abe Kanan Show today on SiriusXM radio and commented on the issue of transgender fighter Fallon Fox:
On the issue of transgender fighters being allowed to fight in women's MMA: "It's a question for the athletic commissions. The athletic commissions, I don't know how they would rule on that. That's a really tough one, and that's in the hands of the commission, not me."
White on his belief that Fox has not really had quality competition yet: "Here's the other thing. All this other hype about Fallon Fox fighting in the UFC or whatever, understand this first and foremost: Everyone that Fallon Fox has fought has a losing record. So before you even think about fighting in the UFC or whatever – he was a man and now he's a woman – he's fighting girls who have losing records. Before you get too crazy about him being in the UFC, he's so freaking far from being in the UFC that it's not even funny."
