Shortly after Julianna Pena won impressively on her comeback fight against Milana Dudieva at UFC: Fairfax, Vinny Magalhaes sent out a bit of a tasteless joke on his twitter account. He referred to Pena as 'Fallon Fox', a controversial transgender fighter. The tweet in question said 'Good win for @FallonFox on her UFC debut' and it has since been deleted.

Magalhaes then sent out homophobic slurs to the people who have replied to his tweet, and Fallon Fox has since responded to these.
