Transgender MMA Fighter Fallon Fox Cleared of Fraud, Will Fight May 24 in Coral Gables
Fallon Fox, a transgender mixed martial artist, has been cleared to fight in Coral Gables next month. The 36-year-old Fox was born male, married his high school girlfriend after getting her pregnant, and served in the Navy. Fox underwent sexual reassignment surgery in 2006 before launching her recent MMA career.
Strangely, the DBPR investigation into Fox's license had nothing to do with her being transgender. The organization was looking into whether Fox knowingly lied when she claimed to have already been licensed in California when, in fact, her license was pending.
"Wow... this is so fucked up!" one commenter wrote regarding the above video. "This dude is making a mockery of women's professional sports. He/she, it, shud be in prison for this shit!"
