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. 


Let her in UFC

  • Yes
  • No
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 ...

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...

What the hell is this world coming to. I have no problem with transsexuals but come on. Female athletes are already looked upon as butch and unfeminine. I hear people commenting about her hormone levels are low enough it doesn't give her an advantage blah blah blah. I am sure being born a man gives this dude unfair advantage. I foresee trannys taking over women's sports

I don't think this is a big deal. Fights are matched up by weight anyway and I'm sure there are many female UFC fighters willing to take her on. They're tough broads who could kick most men's asses. Don't assume that women are always the weaker sex.

Regardless to being transgender she obviosly doesn't take hormones she is still very masculin. Therefore it's male fighting female. It seems to me if she takes this sport seriously then fight other transgender females or fight males. There is no skill in a man beating a female regardless. He shouls be arrested!!!!!

Just goes to show ... once a man always a man! Let him/her fight men. THIS IS NOT FAIR.

I vote no, but not because of the ignorant reasons the rest of you morons put. If she had all this done before puberty then maybe. Or if there is definitive proof that there is no advantage at all.

The answer is obviously that the athletic commission must define the rules before she can fight in the women's division. A fair rule would require a person to complete gender conversion (cosmetic & physiological / hormonal, etc) BEFORE full development (age ~25; end of puberty would also be reasonable) and maintain.

Genetic... GENETICS!... Come on, males have more muscle mass than women. Therefore, it would make it unfair to women fighters
