THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — As far as I can tell, it has little to do with her being transgender — or maybe it does and everyone is tiptoeing around trying to avoid stating the obvious. The Sports Illustrated article on the topic requires too much reading between the lines to figure it all out. I selected SI because they were the ones who revealed on Monday that martial arts fighter Fallon Fox was transgender.
Fox’s sex reassignment surgery occurred in 2006 and has fought in two bouts — this supposedly would make her the first trans athlete in that sport. Unfortunately that milestone was overshadowed with the news that her license to fight is under investigation.
I don’t understand the sport or the sport’s licensing procedures to comment on it, however I do see little comments (and sometimes the lack of comments) that hints at there being something more than just a paperwork snafu.
If anybody wants to take a crack at this and figure it out and comment, be my guest: Transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox faces licensing problems – MMA – Loretta Hunt – SI.com.
