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. 


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 ...

What's this dude's real issue? Does he have a problem with women? Why does he want to fight real women and not transdgendered women like him? He is not fooling anyone, he knows he will have an unfair advantage, and whoever is letting this stupidity go on is dispicable and needs to be called out and stopped. No its not ok for him/her to beat up on women, He sounds like a loser who wasnt good at anything so now he's found an unfair way to win something. ****ing s***bag.

I voted no - but what I mean is "not yet". She's got to really prove herself against much better opponents.

Didn't Octomom do boxing before the porn & rehab stage? That'd be a good one.

The question has come up about unnatural testosterone levels in transwomen. The opposite happens in guys who use steroids to 'bulk up'. The body has a funny habit of turning excess testosterone into estrogen. that's why 'roid users develop 'b!tch-t!ts". The opposite can happen - if there's too much estrogen in a woman's system, the body turns the excess into testosterone. From-the-DNA-out women who have Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) produce 'way more than the normal amount of testosterone, and often their genitalia is masculinized.

Google "XY unassisted pregnancy." It seems that we once thought "XX" was female and "XY" was male. Yet an xy got naturally pregnant and had a baby. There are those humans born without any "bits and pieces" and those born with both sets of "bits and pieces." Gender clearly runs a range.

i'm all for continuing the fight for equality for our transgendered brothers and sisters, but, geez, this makes me feel really uncomfortable. yeah, she's been a woman for at least 6 years, but she was a man for 30... there's just something off about watching her beat the daylights out of the other woman in the ring.
