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.

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 ...

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

Would y'all prefer that she fight men? I've had a feeling for years that some men would really like to beat women up any time they feel like it, but are (generally, not always) stopped by the don't-hit-girls rule they learned in grade school. Hey! here's a guy who turned himself into a woman! They gave up the strength advantage, but they're not really-really women. It's OPEN SEASON on trans-women!

No! No! No! It wouldn't be a fair fight. You can't compare female strength to a males strength even if he is transgender! Even Rousey would get her ass kicked and she's strong. No, No! I hope Dana White never goes for this! I doubt he will because it would be fake because this guy has an advantage.

This person matured into a full grown man with the muscle mass and build of a man, and now he thinks he can fight women, because he tries to look like one on the outside? What's his real deal? D

This "woman" has a body that matured up to 30 years old. a fully matured man's body. but this jerk wants to fight women? what's his real deal? does he hate women, because he will never fully be one? what is with these transgendered men trying to best women? why can't he fight other transgender women? this is sick, this man just wants to beat up on the people he wishes he was. who does he think he's fully, it's obvious he knows he would have a bigger advatnage over the women. what fools are letting him get away with this crap?

Im getting so tired of these transexuals.. This is a man who dresses like a woman and had surgery to look like a woman... Quick blood test show the DNA which is the final answer he is still a man so if he wants to fight in the UFC he has to fight in the men division. Pretty simple.

Just like the girl who wanted to play in the NFL. Where do these people come from? Are there any real MEN and WOMEN left on this planet or do we only have gays/lesbians and trannies?

This is DISTURBING and so wrong. You should take the video down. This is a man beating the **** out of a woman! Its disgusting. Transgender Rights Absolutely. This is a man who for the last thirty years has developed a different muscle mass and density then women have and is now abusing women. This man/woman should be arrested or banned. You wanna fight guys go do that and see how that works out for you. Coward!

It wouldn't be a fair fight... regardless of her transgender... she was still born as a man... is built like a man and has strength like a man... It's not fair to the women who are born as a woman...
