We can agree to disagree.
I'm far from an expert on the medical role of hormones in TG issues, but I was just thinking:
If a guy want's a physical advantage he takes steroids to gain mass/strength/etc.
If this guy/girl reduced the amount of estrogen he/she was taking would that allow him/her to gain mass? Would he/she able to reap a physical benefit simply by NOT taking a medication?
So, Fox got KTFO in her last fight. How does that affect everyone's feelings about her?
Thanks for the heads-up, Bob. I watched the gifs and am looking for video. The fight appears from the gifs to feature some solid back-and-forth in the striking, but Fallon got the messy end of the stick in the grappling game.
I have some concerns about transgender fighters in MMA, but the hateful, ignorant commentary here on Bullshido has made me more pro-Fallon.
Watched the fight. Fallon's wrestling was good but Evans-Smith's was better. Fallon showed strong basic striking and a well-conditioned kick catch. She looked strong on offense and seemed to either lose steam or lack game when on the defensive. Evans-Smith demonstrated dynamic grappling, excellent takedowns, good cardio, and solid striking in the ground game.
Does this fight say anything about policy re: trans fighters in MMA? No, not really. It was just a good fight: a great match-up and a great display of athleticism by both fighters.
upset" in post-fight analysis but I wasn't reading nor can I find pre-fight predictions. Evans-Smith has a (now) 2-0 pro record and a 5-4 ammy record.
To me, in this fight, Fallon appeared to be the slightly stronger and somewhat more explosive fighter, but also seemed to lack conditioning. One fighter being stronger than the other is, of course, not unusual in any MMA match-up.
