In 2013, transgender mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Fallon Fox made headlines when she revealed that she was a trans woman. Fox had been competing professionally in MMA fights for several years before coming out as transgender, but her announcement sparked a heated debate about the ethics of transgender athletes competing in combat sports.
On April 24, Fox stepped into the cage to face off against fellow female MMA fighter Ashlee Evans-Smith at the Championship Fighting Alliance (CFA) 12 event in Coral Gables, Florida. The fight was highly anticipated, with many fans and commentators eager to see how Fox would perform against a tough opponent.
Unfortunately for Fox, the fight did not go her way. Evans-Smith was able to land a series of hard punches and elbows that rocked Fox and ultimately led to a TKO victory for Evans-Smith in the third round of the fight.
Despite the loss, Fox remained proud of her performance in the fight and continued to fight professionally in MMA for several more years. However, the controversy surrounding her participation in combat sports continued to simmer, with some critics arguing that Fox had an unfair advantage due to her previous experience as a male fighter.
In 2015 Fox fought Tamikka Brents in the most controversial match ever in MMA. She won the fight via TKO in just 44 seconds. That was the fight that brought most controversies about Fallon Fox as she managed to break Brent’s skull in that fight.
Fight against Tamikka Brents
“I’ve never felt so overpowered!” – were the words of Tamikka Brents after Fallon Fox broke her skull during their MMA fight.
She defeated Tamikka Brents in a much-anticipated fight that left Tamikka Brents down for the count in the first round. It was messy, it was bloody and it wasn’t easy viewing for everybody. Tamikka suffered a concussion and a broken skull. Fox wasn’t stopping until Tamikka Brents was finally TKO’d and the referee stopped it. Tamikka needed stitches and serious medical attention after the fight, which shows you how the fight went.
“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did today. I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not because I’m not a doctor. What I can is that I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female. I still disagree with Fox fighting. She can pursue any career but when it comes to a combat sport I think it just isn’t fair.” – Tamikka Brents said in an interview after the fight.
