Transgender MMA Fighter Destroys Female Opponent

Transgender MMA Fighter Destroys Female Opponent

By: Laura Meyers

Critics are scrutinizing mixed martial arts (MMA) competitor Fallon Fox, after the transgender fighter gave her opponent a concussion and broke her eye socket.

Fox defeated her opponent, Tamikka Brents, by TKO at 2:17 of the first round of their match. Brent’s eye injury resulted in a damaged orbital bone that required seven staples.

In a post-fight interview this week, Brents told Whoa TV, “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 she 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. ”

Fox’s “grip was different,” Brents added. “I could usually move around in the clinch against…females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”

A video (below) of the fight 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. Then, Brents turns to avoid damage, where she then took about 45 seconds of elbow and fist strikes before the fight was stopped by the referee.

This is not the first time Fox’s gender controversy has been criticized.

In 2013, after a 39-second knockout victory, Fox’s fifth straight first-round victory, it was revealed that Fox had not told the MMA community about her sex-change operation, which took place in 2006.

Equality or nah?

    That male bone structure and body mass must make a difference. Interesting and disturbing.

    The author said, “….his sex change operation” the use of “his” is obviously transphobic. Denying a persons right to identify with a gender other than the one assigned at birth sounds bigoted and libertarians are into freedom, no? The freedom to be authentically ones own self should be a basic freedom that libertarians celebrate.

    Ms. Fox may or may not have an advantage. She is average in size for a woman and her muscle mass does not test outside the range for females. The women she defeats may be looking for an excuse for their defeat. Many doctors have looked at her and determined she does not have a physical advantage not attributed to her training dedication. She is an interesting person. Get to know her and perhaps you will change your mind.

    How did they allow this in the first place? She was born as a man, she has the genetics and DNA of a man. Not to mention the strength. Idiots these days think just because someone has their private parts removed they’re automatically the opposite sex. That’s not the case, they just end up being penis-less men because changing your sex is impossible. People need to understand that being transgender is simply having a mental illness. Do some research, it’s in DSM5, the book psychologists use under the name Gender Dysphoria. But proven to be a mental disorder or not, it’s still obvious. Someone who isn’t comfortable with the sex they were born with, approaches surgeons to permanently butcher an otherwise perfect body, and begs for synthetic hormones that clearly don’t belong in their body is clearly not mentally normal. This person is still a man and shouldn’t be in the ring with a woman just because HE has a mental disorder that makes him think he’s supposed to be a woman. Call me insensitive and mean, I’m just telling the facts here.
