    No she looks like a person who exercises and focuses on building up muscles. Why do you assume that implies a kind of gender?

    Anyone who refers to that thing as she has some serious issues.

    At the end of the day, it is up to the Sanctioning Bodies that rule the MMA.

    IF all Sanctioning Bodies of the MMA have a uniform policy, and they allow Trans competitors, then this will become the policy.

    Anybody who has a problem with it is free to tune out MMA at any time.

    I personally disagree with this policy, but I don't run these MMA Sanctioning Bodies.

    Bottom line:

    Anybody who doesn't like it is free to stop watching MMA.

    Venting on an internet message board (b/c one may have an agenda against Trans Athletes) won't change a thing.

    If anybody has a problem, then tune out MMA.

    or perhaps because the other person was not a good fighter.

    Is there any sport where a former male is now dominating headlines in competitions?

    "She" is a man who "won" a fight with a girl. A pathetic thing to brag on. He's a women beater. In a sane society, such people are shunned and incarcerated.

    Oh no! Because you can't spar wits you try your best to flee because you akin me to a toy you play with and discard. Don't blame me when I point out how you conceptualize gender *gasp* influences you on how you view the world. You were the one who tagged me. You brought this upon yourself.

    Now answer the question-why do you equate physical strength with being a man, especially when we know that women can do physically demanding work?

    I would not spend 10 cents or 10 seconds watching this cage fighting crap. Kicking, biting, scratching and headlocks is not my idea of fighting....Boxing is the manly art of self defense, not this crap.

    This was a sanctioned fight. Don't even try to insult MMA like that. If you want to complain about fighting go someplace else. She won because fought better than her opponent.

    I'm going to say that the loser could still beat the crap out of me. She's not a bad fighter. You don't be a bad fighter and get to where she is today. She just lost to a better fighter than her.

    Your hyperbole is a bit over the top, even for you. It was a sanctioned sporting event in which both contestants followed the rules of the licensing body

    She is 0-4, lost her two amateur fights and both her professional fights. At least this one lasted a minute longer than her last one

    I thought it was 0-3? Oh well.

    Even then I'm still willing to say that she's not a bad fighter, just doesn't have that much going for her right now.

    Nope, I'll say what I want right here in this thread, deal with it.
    He "won" because he beat up a women....a real, actual women, the only kind.

    She won because she was a better fighter. Can't move past that stage until you accept that fact.

    Attend an proper MMA school. While some women can and do submit guys, it's only guys who are lower belts than they are. And smaller or similar in size. In no way are two similar sized men and women of equal training on the same playing field. The man wins every time, you can see this for yourself.

    You can call it a "fact" if you like, but dont ask me to play that game.
    A real fact is it's a male. Biology will win this argument, every time. Don't be a science denier.

    Please see my reply below. Trans bodies are not the same as cis bodies. Imagine saying that a person is the same after taking testosterone suppressants.

    Let me know when you have something about trans bodies.

    Biology actually does say that transpeople are the gender they say they are.
