Transgender mixed martial arts competitor Fallon Fox is facing new criticisms after breaking the eye socket of his last opponent.
EDITOR’S NOTE: There is no surgery available to change your gender, you are what you are born as. Men who become transgender and “convert” to being a woman are still men with all the DNA, testosterone and body strength that goes with it. Allowing a man to call himself a “woman” and to then be allowed to get in a ring and fight an actual woman borders on criminal behavior. If MMA is smart, they will put an immediate stop to this nonsense right away.
In 2014, Fox defeated Tamikka Brents by TKO at 2:17 of the first round of their match. In addition to the damaged orbital bone that required seven staples, Brents received a concussion. In a post-fight interview this week, she told Whoa TV that “I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life.”
“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because [he] was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor,” she stated. “I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right. ”
Fallon Fox vs Tamikka Brents:
His “grip was different,” she added. “I could usually move around in the clinch against…females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”
Fox’s gender controversy is not new. In March 2013, after a 39-second knockout victory, it was revealed that Fox had not told the MMA community about his sex-change operation, which took place in 2006. That bout was the fifth straight first-round victory for the then-37-year old Fox, including his three amateur bouts, and his second victory as a professional fighter.
A video of the Brents fight taken by a ringside fan shows Fox throwing several powerful knees to the face and torso of Brents at the start of the match, who pulled guard to protect herself. Soon, Brents turned her back to avoid damage, where she took approximately 45 seconds of elbow and fist strikes – many blocked by her hands and arms – before the referee stopped the fight. source
