(AP) -- The Ultimate Fighting Championship organization has suspended heavyweight Matt Mitrione, saying it was "appalled" by comments he made about transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox.

Fox recently won a match, and then disclosed afterward that she had undergone a sex change operation. Mitrione was asked about the issue Monday on "The MMA Hour" and called Fox a "disgusting freak" who lied about her gender to "beat up women."

The UFC said it found Mitrione's comments "offensive and wholly unacceptable."
