Fallon Fox is bracing herself for controversy, and as the first on-record transgender female fighter in mixed martial arts, she's going to get plenty of it.

On Monday, the 37-year-old Fox (2-0) revealed exclusively to SI.com that she's a transgender fighter -- the first on record, male or female, to compete in the combat sport. Fox won her second professional bout with a 39-second knockout (via knee) last Saturday at Championship Fighting Alliance 10 in Coral Gables, Fla.

Fox, who underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2006 along with the supplemental hormonal therapy, is scheduled to fight again for the CFA on April 20 in the semifinals of its eight-woman featherweight tournament. However, Fox's license approval is now under investigation with Florida's Dept. of Business and Professional Regulation...

Holy shit you guys!!! This is crazy. I met her once. My girlfriend goes to Title Boxing in Schaumburg, IL and Fallon was an instructor there for a short period of time. I took a class with her as the instructor. It was crazy b/c according to my gf, one morning Fallon never showed up for work. This chick had some serious power on her strikes too.

Birth sex should determine what division you compete in.

Changing the outward appearance of the genitals doesn't change the structure of your chromosomes. She still has the physical advantages of a man.

Sensitive issue. But its all about fairness really.

You're right. It's not about hating people it's about safety.

Totally agree there. No amount of cosmetic surgery and hormones make you a girl. Look at the sherdog pictures. Thats a dude, and a dude who has a TKO (injury) and a brutal KO via knee. Not safe or fair to female fighters.

She should only be able to fight fellow transgenders IMO

And I thought Invicta would be a hard sell!

I do think this is a fight that should happen. We can then find out if Chris can beat a man up.
