    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    No.

    He should not be allowed to fight women. It's not about being transphobic. It's not about his rights to be considered a woman. When it comes down to it, he has the male strength and mass advantage. It's bullshit.

    Also he lied tons and tons to a bunch of different people/orgs. That in of itself is some bullshit.

    I'm with Sirc on this one.

    It's willful deception at best and outright sandbagging at worst.

    Either way, it's not very sporting...

    It's a step in the right direction though for my dream to see mutant freaks fight each other though.

    *she

    Whether or not we think that she should be fighting in WMMA, lets respect her gender identity.

    Since it first came up, I have read a lot of back and forth on this particular case. A major concern is whether or not many years (6+) of hormone replacement therapy does (or does not) effect her bone structure and muscle mass, etc. Let me dig up the articles and re-post them here.

    The main consensus I see from the 'experts' or medical community is that she is female (or female enough?) to fight 'natural' females (note that one of these docs is a male to female transgender herself...yes, I will provide the article). They are using the Olympic commission precedent as a platform for this decision and I believe (I will find the original doc) that the commission has already approved her license but I could be mistaken.

    I am all for transgender rights and acceptance but me personally, I would not fight her in a MMA match and I would be fairly butthurt if I came upon her in a grappling tournament (even though I have grappled plenty of 'man-women' in comp before).

    Let me find the docs I've been referring too. Most have been supplied by Womens MMA Discussion on FB.

    Lastly, I don't think Mitrione comments were transphobic. But thats my opinion.

    What if he/she fights and looses to a woman then is it ok?

    My take is if the opponent knows and is OK with it hen it's ok....

    Maybe

    Long-term career thinking, then: throw her/his/hes/hir first fight.
