Rousey appeared on last night’s edition of “Inside MMA” on AXS TV and believes that transgender athletes in MMA should be a case by case basis.

“If you’re a man who indefinites as a woman, or a woman who indefinites as a man, that’s something you can’t control,” Rousey said. “That’s not your choice. That’s just the way you are. But being transgender, that does require a choice. I think it needs to be case-by-case basis.”

When it comes to Fallon Fox situation, Rousey stated that is not scientifically possible to maker her body equal to a women.

“On Fallon Fox’s case, she went through puberty entirely as a man, and though I do believe that her identity definitely is that of a woman, at this point in her life, it’s just not scientifically possible to make her body exactly equal to that as a woman. Transgender fighters should be taken by a case by case basis and if you already developed through puberty as a man, I don’t think you should be able to compete as a woman.”
