The story of Fallon Fox is difficult to grasp. Fallon is a man. Who decided he wanted to be a woman. And is now a male-to-female transgender. Fallon is also a Mixed Martial Arts (“MMA”) fighter and gets to to fight in the female division. Fallon used to be a man named Boyd Burton until the age of thirty-one, when he went to Bangkok to undergo gender re-assignment surgery. Six years later in 2012, Fallon started fighting in the women’s MMA division.
‘With a record of 5-1, none of Fallon’s female victims have even made it past two minutes of the first round. If you were to watch these fights, it would look very much like you would expect – a man knocking a woman unconscious.”
Of the six fights that Fallon has had against women, three of them were straight knock-outs within the first two minutes. When Fallon fought against Tamikka Brents, Brents suffered ‘a concussion, an orbital bone fracture, and seven staples to the head. After her severe injuries, Brents took to social media to convey her thoughts on the experience of fighting Fox and said the following: “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. 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. Her grip was different, I could usually move around in the clinch against other females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch…”
Whilst Leftists have come out championing the cause of Fallon to fight against women, there have been voices of reason ringing out on the subject as well. As Steven Crowder said, ‘It’s only natural for human beings to get squeamish at the sight of a lifelong male pummeling dames mercilessly.’ So there have been some credible male voices speaking out against Fallon receiving a license to compete in the women’s division.
UFC color commentator and stand-up comedian, Joe Rogan and MMA personality, Bas Rutton were among them, with Rogan stating “First of all, she’s not really a she. She’s a transgender, post-op person. The operation doesn’t shave down your bone density. It doesn’t change. You look at a man’s hands and you look at a women’s hands and they’re built different. They’re just thicker, they’re stronger, your wrists are thicker, your elbows are thicker, your joints are thicker. Just the mechanical function of punching, a man can do it much harder than a woman can, period.”
