From MMAFighting.com

Near the end of his appearance on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione went on an unsolicited tirade about transgendered fighter Fallon Fox.

Late Monday afternoon, the UFC released a statement saying Mitrione has been suspended for violation of the company’s code of conduct.

“The UFC was appalled by the trans phobic comments made by heavyweight Matt Mitrione today in an interview on ‘The MMA Hour.’

The organization finds Mr. Mitrione’s comments offensive and wholly unacceptable and – as a direct result of this significant breach of the UFC’s code of conduct – Mr. Mitrione’s UFC contract has been suspended and the incident is being investigated.

The UFC is a friend and ally of the LGBT community, and expects and requires all 450 of its athletes to treat others with dignity and respect.”

The Meathead interview starts around the 2:30 mark.
