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 ...

When it comes to endurance and strength, he should not be allowed to participate as a woman.

I think that if MMA transgenders are allowed to fight in UFC, the only fair way to let them is to make a fight category specifically for them, whether it be in the men's UFC or women's UFC. Women fight women, men fight men and transgenders fight transgenders, fair is fair. Even though he/she is declared a woman now because of the surgical gender change he/she still has the strengh of a man, no biological or surgical changes there.

wow...84% thinks she shouldn't be allowed to fight. C'mon....I thought we were better than this. I guess most aren't ready to evolve. The human body and brain don't go hand in hand...so transgender people take hormones and get surgery so that their bodies can match their brain...so that they can be happy and hopefully accepted into society without living a lie. Transgender isn't some made up bs...it's real. The same way homosexuality is. Years ago, homosexuality was considered a mental illness and people were committed for it. Now, nature has proven that homosexuality is found in 1500 species..and it is recognized and no longer considered an illness. It's real....just like being transgender. Once a person takes hormones for so long, their bodies begin to behave like the gender they identify with. trans women begin to gain feminine curves, softer skin, longer hair etc. Trans men on hormones start to grow facial/body hair, muscle mass, loss of a period, etc. I'm not trans, but I do try to understand another's walk through life. They have it hard....from legal laws to society's cruelty.

That's because "she" is a DUDE. Why would you ever call a DUDE a female. IT is a girl of sorts...just very unattractive DUDE.

This just sounds to me like some dude couldn't make it in the ring as a man, so he went trans-gender to have a chance at winning. Which still makes him a loser.

This is wrong on so many levels... No matter how much estrogen therapy she is going through, it won't change her having the body structure of A man. You can't just cut your balls off and think you can fight other women now. Sorry, she is still built like A man, and men naturally have more strength and power to allow us to hit harder than our female counterparts. She could fight any other female MMA fighter in her weight class and will still out perform them physically. Did anyone watch the other fight she had? She threw that girl down to the ground like A rag doll...
