    Nadaf wanted to give Veriato an opportunity, but was against matching her up against a woman. He didn’t agree with fighters like Fallon Fox, a transgender woman who competed against women in the United States between 2011 and 2014.

    Anne Veriato is a jiu-jitsu brown-belt with several gold medals in local competition.

    ”This [fighter] is a phenom in jiu-jitsu, and you look at [her], it’s a woman,” Nadaf told MMA Fighting. “They asked me for an opportunity. My answer was ‘I can give you an opportunity, but at Mr. Cage, men fight men, it doesn’t matter if you have a penis or not. If you were born a man, you’ll fight a man.’ [She] said ‘that’s exactly what I want.’”

    Nadaf visited Veriato’s gym a few days later, and signed a deal to become her manager and promote her MMA debut on March 10.

    ”It’s only fair to fight men,” Veriato said. “It never crossed my mind to fight a woman because I think I’m too good. If I beat men my entire career, I can still beat them despite the hormone process. I only know that I’m good after I beat men. That’s what makes me happy and hungrier to train. I don’t think it’s fair to fight women.”

    Imagine the kind of hormone ratios in this fighter’s samples? All of king’s horses and all of king’s men couldn’t put USADA together again.

    So she wants to fight men, and admits it would be unfair to fight women.

    Interesting.

    This is what Fallon Fox should've done, but didn't have the balls to...
