The MMA Tonight crew is back this week to talk all things mixed martial arts, including transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox. UFC color commentator and stand-up comedian Joe Rogan made some comments regarding Fox on his podcast recently that caused some controversy and was picked up by TMZ.

Rogan said:

“She calls herself a woman but … I tend to disagree.”

“She used to be a man … but now she has had, she’s a transgender which is (the) official term that means you’ve gone through it, right? And she wants to be able to fight women in MMA. I say no f—- way.”

“I say if you had a d— at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a d—. You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f—- man. That’s a man, OK?”

“I don’t care if you don’t have a d— any more.” … “You’re a man without a d—.”

The guys share their thoughts on the issue and co-host Ed Clay shares a similar experience he had to deal with when he was coaching a woman at his gym who wanted to fight — and she turned out to be a man.

In addition to discussing Fallon Fox, the guys also discuss Georges St-Pierre‘s win over Nick Diaz at UFC 158 and take a call from Paul Downing who represents Ground Gamez and will be promoting an MMA event “Organized Chaos” being held at The Factory in Franklin, Tenn. on April 6.
