Transgender MMA Fighter

Picture of Pre-Op Manhood

From Before Sex Change

3/8/2013 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox was a stereotypical manly man before she became a woman ... and TMZ has obtained the photos to prove it.

An ex-GF tells us ... she met Fallon back in 1999 when he was serving in the Navy. Fallon -- born Boyd Burton -- went by "Woody," after "Woody Boyd" from "Cheers."

The ex says Woody was a "manly man" -- athletic, short-cropped hair, leather jackets, big into heavy metal -- and she never suspected he'd become a transsexual. The two eventually broke up because of distance ... no other relationship problems.

Years after the breakup, the ex says she reached out to Fallon after she announced her transition on Facebook -- and that's when Fallon informed her she always felt she was in the wrong body.

The ex says Fallon also confessed to stealing some of her clothes while they were dating.

he is obviously dangerous and has deep seated mental issues. personally I think he and others who mutilate themselves and think they are a different sex than as they were born should be compulsory detained in a mental health unit.

who would want to be near this crazy person. Lock him up and do it NOW!

Ok she was born a man, but women still beat the **** out of men every day. If a woman is in the UFC she has been trained. She'll know she is going to fight someone bigger or stronger (or bigger AND stronger) than her at some point. This isn't domestic violence, if two people (regardless of gender) want to fight it out, why not? They both fight, it's not U(Male)FC. The early days of MMA had a Sumo wrestler fight a boxer. How is that a strength/skill match?!

He was ugly as a man and now ugly as a woman. Just because you snipped off your dink a few years ago still doesn't make you a woman. See a therapist!

So, you either open the door for him or (s)he beats the crap out of you?

Crazy, confused and a good fighter doesn't seem a good combination, to me.

This is bull. This MAN should not be allowed to fight women. No matter how many surgeries HE gets he will never be 100% female. You cannot rearrange the genetic code of someone. This is disgusting to have him fight women. It is so wrong.
