UFC suspends Matt Mitrione for Fallon Fox comments

The UFC announced today that Matt Mitrione was suspended for violating the company's code of conduct after comments made about transgender fighter Fallon Fox.

Mitrone was a guest of Ariel Helwani on Monday's The MMA Hour, calling Fox, "...a lying, sick sociopathic, disgusting freak" and said "She's not a she.  He's a he." 

The UFC has worked with the lesbian and gay community-- both in the promotion of Liz Carmouche, and dating back to Dana White apologizing for using a homosexual slur several years ago.
