A female transgender MMA fighter who just kicked an opponent's ass in 39 seconds has set her sights on the UFC.

Fallon Fox was born a man.  In 2006, when she was 30, she had gender reassignment surgery.

Fox is now a MMA fighter for the Championship Fighting Alliance (CFA).  Her record is 2 and 0 after destroying Ericka Newsome Saturday night in 39 seconds with a vicious knee to the head.

Fox says she now wants to fight "at the highest level" -- which in the MMA world is only one place -- the UFC.

Fox insists she is a woman in every respect and just happens to fall into the category of postoperative transsexual.  She compares herself to any other category of women, including blacks, lesbians and the disabled.

Fox says she has no advantage over naturally born women.

The owner of CFA, Jorge De La Noval, tells TMZ, "CFA is an organization which does not discriminate against any fighter ... as long as they are professionally licensed."

As for fighting in the UFC, Dana White tells us to fight in the UFC ... Fox would have to get the green light from the state athletic commission.  But he also says Fox hasn't proved herself yet ... the 2 women she's beat have never won a fight. 

D

ana says, "She's gotta win some real fights to even talk about the UFC."  And Dana warns, "It's not like transgenders who play golf or baseball.  UFC is a contact sport."

So we gotta ask ...

I'm all for transgender, bi, gay, straight whatever. But when it comes to this, I have to say no. I don't think she should be able to fight women even if she is now a woman because technically she was born a man. Idk though...

im sick of seeing people call these men females.just because you cut your pecker off and have tits implanted doesnt make you a woman.his pelvis is still that of a man meaning it isnt wide like a womans whos tend to be wider for child birth.

what does that prove, that he can actually beat up women, he is better off proving that he can fight real men from a career standpoint.....and yes when you are born a male, you will always be a male

His body matured as a male's body would- if he was 30 before his gender reassignment surgery- and hormone treatments aside- his bone structure and musculature is that of a man. A synthetic vagina and a pair of plastic tits does not a woman make.

Shouldn't open your mouth when none of you know what you're talking about. There are real transgenders who have weak amount of testosterone and more estrogen. Their female voices you can clearly hear the difference. When one patient completely undergoes transgender surgery... ( it cost's a mega **** load). They are literally transforming you into a female They shut down any normal male hormonal system that once was. Technically it is a female now and this has been around for years. If the athletic commission says it's fine it is fine. Don't be so quick to judge and so closed minded. Especially you Jenn, you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_reassignment_surgery_%28male-to-female%29

That is 100% now a female.

So this freak cuts off his penis, gets boobs and calls itself a woman. Wrong...you were born a man, which makes you naturally stronger and now you want to beat up women? Seek help.

Okay I'm all for equal rights but this is NOT equal. Regardless of HOW she sees herself....her BODY is a mans body and has MALE muscles. Male and females are built differently. Men are usually stronger, almost hands down. I weigh more than my bf but he is physically stronger. They have more muscle mass. This is not fair if she gets to fight women. She has a male body and is fighting w/a males body.

One has to wonder about nature's cruelty. I wonder what would happen if this guy suddenly discovered now that he's a woman...that he's a lesbian.
