Since March 5, 2013, Fallon Fox has been steeped in controversy for coming out as a transgendered MMA fighter. Fox, who was born a male and transitioned to female, has lately received a lot of heat and opposition for wanting to compete against women. Outside of these things, there are few people that know her full story. Now, according to an HBO press release, Fallon Fox will be getting her own featured profile on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.
According to the press release:
“In this REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated segment, correspondent Mary Carillo goes one-on-one with Fox to learn about her struggles for acceptance and legitimacy in a sport where many still view her as a man.”
The Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel is set to air on April 22nd at 10:00pm EST exclusively on HBO.
