Transgender MMA Fighter

Wants to Fight Chicks


3/6/2013 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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. 


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 ...

You can call yourself what ever you want, but if your born a man you will always be a man. It does not matter what you do to try and alter your appearance, have the penis amputated, whatever. You will never be anything other then a gay man in drag. As I said before about Chaz Bono, its like putting a dog in a Bug's Bunny Halloween costume. You know, you put bunny ears on the dog, and maybe a bunny tail, and nose to, and you can say he is a rabbit now. BUT he is NOT a rabbit now, he is just a dog in a stupid looking costume.

This is absolutely absurd so if GSP said well I want to be a women now so you liberals think that would be acceptable? Hell no! As previously mentioned just imagine if Lebron decided well I feel like being a women now here I come Wnba! The UFC is crazy if they ever decided to allow this person in. If she/he is a legit ament fighter then fight your own gender, male! Give me a break with this nonsense!!

HE is not a woman. AND, HE will never be a woman. HE can change HIS appearance all HE wants, have all HIS gay buds refer to HIM as her, it does not matter. No matter what you do you will always be just a gay MAN in drag.

The only opponent she should be able to fight is another transgender. Operation or not the fact of the matter is she was still born a man. I don't believe its discrimination just a matchmakers job to find an equal opponent. no other transgender opponent no fight..

This "female" shouldnt even be in the MMA. He was a MAN until he was THIRTY, a full grown MAN!! Then became a female, joined MMA to beat the crap outta chicks, and now wants to do that in the UFC??

Sounds like he couldnt be the champ fighter as a man and became a female so he could be the best. HIghly doubts Dana would everr let her/him in UFC..

She has every right to compete as a woman in the MMA. For instance, the NCAA has already developed inclusive policies to account for trans athletes that take hormones in order to compete. I'm disappointed to see so many hurtful comments toward Fallon. She is an amazing athlete and deserve our respect. Please take a moment to read a bit more about the struggles that transgender athletes face before you jump to conclusions and ridicule a person you don't know.

You're right, she's not a man....or a woman. because a real men and women have integrity. She didn't even let the Florida athletic commission know that she was a post op. female. It would be really sad if her opponent didn't even know what she was walking into. She lied about having an CA boxing license. They've had to postpone the entire tournament because of this.

Bs this shouldn't even be considered! He was born a man! So if mike tyson decided to cut of his dick he should be able to whoop on chics? So damn dumb and it has nothing to do with equality and all other **** you ****tards and bringing into it. Men and woman structured differently and he was born a man should only be able to fight men!!!!!!
