Last month, United States Women’s National Team superstar Megan Rapinoe offered her opinion on transgender women competing in women’s sports, making it clear that she would even support a transgender woman joining her team or playing against her. And that’s led one UFC star to criticize her opinion on the matter.
During an interview with Charly Arnolt of Outkick this week, former UFC star Jorge Masvidal blasted soccer star Megan Rapinoe for her opinion on transgender athletes, questioning if the soccer star understands “how actual science works”
“She’s probably somebody that either doesn’t understand how actual science works or doesn’t care for women to have records, it’s just not fair,” Masvidal told Outkick’s Charly Arnolt.
Masvidal does not think that it would be fair to allow a transgender woman to compete in women’s sports, saying “It’s just not fair.”
“It’s a different it’s a different thing. There’s some things that women are so much better than men or whatever, but competing like that. It’s just not fair.”
The two may both be elite athletes, but it’s clear that they do not share an opinion on whether or not transgender women should be allowed to compete in women’s sports.
