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 ...

Transgender Women don't have female brain at all, some of them may have a feminine brain, but there's a huge diference between being female and being feminine.
Also sex is defined by chromosomes, hormone reproduction and internal and external sex organs, so Fallon isn't a female and she will never be one, unfortunately for her there's no such a thing as Sex reassignment surgery, sex is unalterable, yes she can take ''female'' hormones and take blockers for the ''male'' hormones but she will never reproduce those hormones naturally at the levels that females do, and she can modify her penis but it would still be a penis, and she will never develop female sex organs.
You'll never hear of someone that has transitioned from male to female, that is impossible because sex is unalterable so there's no such a thing as transition. , yes there's nothing wrong with being transgender but let's stop the lies, you are spreading your opinion like it was a fact, if she had in fact a female brain, she would have been borned a woman.
She's an artificial woman at best.

Most of these comments make me sick. You are all disgustingly bigoted and will one day be ashamed of yourselves and your attitude toward transgender people. People who deserve the use of the correct pronoun, not "it". You're all ****ing filthy.

S I say let her fight other women, after shes proven herself more and has some record of wins to back her up. So what if she's transgender. She felt like a woman, identified herself as one and then had the surgery to become one. It's not like she was a dude wanting to win fights so she changed sex to have an advantage over another female fighter. A feminine guy (now female) wanting to go up against manly yolked women who sometimes are built like guys. Let her. If she's like most confident women she'd be happy to whoop on a guy too! Best of luck to HER!

Sorry but I seem to be in the minority but I believe in equality. The LBGT Community will always have the religious nutjobs crying "It's against "Gawd's Will" and will stand behind that thought process to hide the fact they are bigots. I for one say let her fight. If other women don't want to fight her, it is their choice. No one forces a person in MMA to go up against an opponent they do not want to. Let it be the fighter's choice. It's not our right to say no.

I DONT CARE IF YOU ARE TRANSGENDER. I DO CARE ABOUT BEING FAIR. YOU STILL ARE A MAN, SO YOU SHOULD BE FIGHTING MEN.

If I was a boxer, I would not fight this man. I don't think any coaches should allow their female boxers to fight him either. Last week I heard about parents fighting to let their son use the girls' restroom at school. I'm pretty much sick of the P.C. nonsense and it's about time folks start calling B.S. on this stuff instead of catering to these whiners. They're the ones carving their own goofy path; they should be the ones to deal with it - not everyone else.

Why shouldn't she be?

She has female hormones, correct? So does not have the strength from test like men.

Its about competitiveness... she would be at a disadvantage against men.

And you can't just not let her in, that's not fair to not let her in because of her condition.
