Two days after his 19-second knockout win over Philip De Fries, UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione has had his contract suspended by the promotion, according to USA Today.

In a Monday appearance, Mitrione called Fallon Fox, who is transgender, a “lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak,” USA Today reports.

“The UFC was appalled by the transphobic comments made by heavyweight Matt Mitrione today in an interview on ‘The MMA Hour,’” the organization said in a statement.
