Matt Mitrione suspended after 'transphobic' comments.

Matt "Meathead" Mitrione recently appeared on Ariel Helwani's “The MMA Hour,” and was confronted by Helwani about remarks the UFC heavyweight had made about transgendered fighter Fallon Fox. saying:

"Because she's not a he. He's a he. He's chromosomally a man. He had a gender change, not a sex change. He's still a man. He was a man for 31 years. Thirty-one years. That's a couple years younger than I am. He's a man. Six years of taking performance de-hancing drugs, you think is going to change all that? That's ridiculous.

That is a lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak and I mean that. Because you lied on your license to beat up women. That's disgusting. You should be embarrassed yourself. And the fact that Florida licensed him because California licensed him or whoever the hell did it, it's an embarrassment to us as fighters, as a sport, and we all should protest that. The woman that's fighting him, props to you. I hope you beat his ass, and I hope he gets blackballed and never fights again, because that's disgusting and I'm appalled by that."

The Nevada Organisation found this offensive and appalling & wholly unacceptable and  as a direct result of this significant breach of the UFC’s code of conduct Mr Mitrione’s UFC contract has been suspended and the incident is being investigated.
