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 ...

this transgender crap is going too far. this is nothing more than a castrated, homosexual man with a mutilated, inverted johnson.
he will always be a he no matter what he wants to think of himself as.
men have a different and more powerful musculature than real women and thus he will always have an advantage. he should never be allowed in there with real women.
have him fight another transformer like cyborg.

I don't think there is anything wrong with being transgender. However, she was born a man and men's bodies definitely grow up with more muscle, etc then women's do. It's a proven fact. Now if they say his body is equivalent to a women's and he has no advantage then sure but it would be unfair obviously if there is an advantage

Just because you got a who-who added does not take away the fact you are a man. Men fight men and women fight women not matter what gets reassigned.

Wait a minute. Is he/she fighting women? I hope not. He may be transgender, but he was born a man by birth. The Law and society says its wrong for a man to hit a woman. So why is it okay for him? He's still born a man, he's stronger than a woman. He/She is 2-0 cause he/she is probably only fighting women. Tell he/she to fight a man. I'm sure he/she won't be 2-0.
