Hulk Hogan Would Be Willing To Fight Fallon Fox, Transgender MMA Fighter

Hulk Hogan has sounded off on the recent controversy surrounding mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Fallon Fox, who came out as transgender earlier this month.

The wrestler, actor and TV personality told TMZ he'd be willing to fight Fox. "I'll whip her...I mean, I'll whip him," Hogan said. "I'll whip her...I'm confused."

As Sports Illustrated points out, Fox is currently scheduled to fight again for the Championship Fighting Alliance 10 in Coral Gables, Fla. on April 20, but as of March 6, her license approval came under investigation with Florida's Dept. of Business and Professional Regulation after she came out as transgender.

Among those to condemn Fox was UFC commentator Joe Rogan. "I say if you had a d*ck at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a d*ck," Rogan said, according to SB Nation. "You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f**king man."

Fox had expressed some reservations about coming out, telling Outports Cyd Ziegler, "People in the gym, people I train with, it's been great, it's been awesome. I'm just a woman to them. I don't want that to go away."
