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 ...

One has to wonder about nature's cruelty. I wonder what would happen if this guy suddenly discovered now that he's a woman...that he's a lesbian.

I say no people who were born male should not be allowed to fight those who were born women. My position is not based on their being transgender. It's based on the fact that no matter how much hormone replacement therapy a male undergoes, a male to female trangered person will alway have an unfair physical advantage over an actual woman. Reasigning a man's winky to look like a vag doesn't reduce his physical advantages over women. Hence, the reason why this guy is "so dominant" over his female challengers. It's not that he's actually being challenged. It basically a case of them allowing a boy to beat up on a girl. And that's just pathetic.

Those born as males (regardless of their sexual preference or gender reasignment) should only fight other males and those born as women (regardless of their sexual preference or gender reasignment) should only fight other women.

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.

Simply changing the amounts of testosterone and estrogen in a person does not actually change their gender. They are still and will always be GENETICALLY that which they were born as. DNA is what distinguishes male and female -- not simply the testosterone/estrogen ratio.

No amount of harmone reasignment will ever genetically change one gender into another.

Infact, even in those who were born with defects and who appear to have both male and female organs, and conflicting ratios of testosterone to estrogen, their DNA (ratio of y to x chromosomes) always defines the person as genetically ONLY either male or female -- never both. This can never be altered.

Thus, genetically, if you are born a male, you will die as a male. If you are genetically born a female, you will die as a female.

Get your facts straight and stop letting your emotional, personal preferences blind you to the facts of genetic science.

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.
