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 ...

Me says NO, That TransGender looks too much like a MAN, if that TransGender looked more like a FEMALE, More like Kalena Rios or Ana Mancini or Celeste or Kimber James maybe But looking like Wesley Snipes with a Wig then NOPE !...

So, she has the genetic make up of a man (and all the boons of it like increased muscle mass) but the genitalia of a woman? Therefore she wants to fight women.

I am not claiming to be the smartest person in the world, but I suspect that is not a fair fight.

Some women are born with XY chromosomes and yet still get pregnant and give birth.

Some men are born without no Y chromosomes and still father children.

DNA can change or be changed - mosaic or chimera syndrome or a bone-marrow transplant will do it.

In other news, the earth is not flat.

No, never. She was born a man and should never be allowed to fight real woman, period.

Hmmm. When I pictured "Equality", this is not what it looked like.

The genetic male still has a huge advantage over a genetic female, even if they both use the women's restroom.

This isn't an equal playing field.

The International Olympics Committee allows male-to-female transgenders to compete as women if they've switched to estrogen for two years, because the trans-women lose ALL the strength advantages that males have. They have essentially NO advantage over naturally-born women after that.

For every 3 voters who voted to allow her to fight, 17 voted 'no way!'
MY QUESTION: If science proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she had no advantage, and maybe even a little disadvantage against her women opponents, would you change your mind?

Ok, I am all for the LGBT community. I will stand up for them, fight for them, etc. However, this is really heart breaking. Regardless of gender reassignment that is a man fighting women!!!! It does not matter how much estrogen has been implanted nor how much testosterone has been removed. Men always have and always will be stronger than women. This person is legally in the ring pummeling female challengers. The CFA needs to be shut down!!!!!!! She should be fighting other transgender women, not natural born women. This is a disgrace
