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.
