It depends on how much estrogen she's on. It's a hormone issue. If she's testing in the same testosterone range as her competitors I don't see why anyone would have a problem with it. If she's not, no way is it fair.

does it seem strange to anyone else ...that a man who wants to be a woman would then want to fight like a man againat other women?

Since she's had sex reassignment surgery her testoserone levels will be just as low or lower than any natal woman. This also means that her muscles and her ability to gain muscle are no different either. One of the biggest changes with hormone replacement therapy is muscle loss. Another is bone density, which is often less than that of natal women. She may be at a disadvantage there.

Since she was fully grown before she began HRT and transitioned she no doubt has male skeletal structure though. I don't know if this matters or can be seen as an advantage in MMA though, I know nothing about the sport.

There was one... he deleted it. I guess the facts didn't back up the post.
If you're talking about me, I posted and then decided I was gonna sit this one out. It's got nothing to do with facts.

Can't say I blame him. Sometimes, endless debate in which neither side will change the other's mind isn't worth it.

The "facts" won't always change a person's mind or their feelings.

It's not a she, DNA says its a man. When it comes to fighting " he/she" will have an advantage ala German Swimmers in the 50's. They have to ban him from fighting period.

"I am confused is this a magic show" lmao
