Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by The Classical contributor Tomas Rios.
Breen and Rios discuss UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione's recent comments about transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox and the resulting suspension of his Zuffa contract. The pair look at the underlying causes of Mitrione's comments, jock culture and investigate the uneven application of punishment from the UFC parent company for its fighters' off-color comments.
The duo also dig into the role that social media has played in such situations, whether its beneficial to incentivizing fighters to tweet, Matt Hughes' curious role in the UFC and more.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
