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 ...

I'm gay but this is ridiculous. She DOES have an advantage because she was born with testosterone. She should not be allowed to completely annihilate a woman, who is clearly no match for her. I say make her fight the men or show her the door, its simply not fair.

We had an article in our local paper (San Francisco) the other day about a transgender who plays college basketball with girls now. They showed a photo, this person is 6'6". I'm sorry, but I think it is ridiculous, just like this story.

Knock outs in Women's MMA are pretty rare. I've been a fan of Women's MMA for years, and I can't recall ever seeing a knock out in Women's MMA. So the fact that this transgender women knocked out her opponent so quickly tells me that she doesn't have the normal striking power of a MMA woman. Even Chris "Cyborg" Santos, who uses performance enhancing drugs and is considered the most powerful woman fighter ever, hasn't knocked out a woman like that.
Maybe there needs to be a transgender league.

So, a full-grown, fully-developed, very strong and muscular MAN, is now allowed to PUMMEL women simply because the gay agenda isso powerful? A man cuts off his penis and we must all pretend he is a woman (all but ME, that is; I will not be bullied into submission. I have 20/20 vision and I can see that the person in the photo is simply a man without a penis.) More importantly, we must ENCOURAGE his desire to beat up women, JUST because gays tell us he's a "woman?" When will this end? Wake up, straight America.

It's a disadvantage as ,"she" was born a man. Just because," she" dresses like a woman and has been deemed a woman doesn't mean, " she" should take that advantage! "She" was born a man and has that strength--you can't take that away. That's not possible.

He was born a man, has the power of a man and should only fight men. Just because he chooses to live his life as a woman doesn't make him a woman. He came into this world a male and will be a male until he dies. I don't care if he had his penis removed. HE's still a MAN.

The dude is a man don't care if she/he has tits and pssy - still has the male psychic i.e, upper body strength and more muscle than body fat - real women have body fat

I am all for anyone who wants to change their gender if the mind and body dont match but i say NO to "her" fighting biological women. Men are naturally built bigger and stronger then women and i think it would be unfair in many respects
