"The Ultimate Fighter" alumnus War Machine, born Jonathan Koppenhaver, is one of the most colorful people in the fight industry ever since going to jail for the first time in August 2010.
“Every MMA female fighter out there should just refuse to fight her because it’s bulls—t, and then she’ll have nowhere to fight. Any show that signs her is a piece of s—t show. She’s a f—–g dude, you want me to cut off my d—k and beat the s—t out of Ronda Rousey the UFC champion? That’s what would happen. It’s not fair she’s a dude.”
It's quite a coincidence that War Machine brings up Rousey's name, as she recently took her own harsh verbal shots at Fox (via the Post).
Fox's name has been in the headlines for months now, especially earlier this week when UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione called her "a sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak," among other things (MMAFighting.com).
The hate-filled rant earned "Meathead" a contract suspension that also came along with a pending investigation into the incident.
Despite all the controversy, Fox, who received gender reassignment surgery in 2006, has had her fighter's license approved and is scheduled to fight Allana Jones on May 24 under the Championship Fighting Alliance banner.
Has the Fallon Fox controversy finally run its course in the MMA world, or is this a topic that is destined to be discussed until the day she retires?
