Fallon Fox (2-0 MMA) may be the most talked about woman in Mixed Martial Arts, at least over the past month. Fox, a transgendered athlete who was born a male, won her first bout in the CFA tournament last month before the entire situation was revealed. Since then, her story has become national news and the question of whether or not she should be allowed to fight females has been a hot topic of debate.
One person who doesn’t seem to have an issue with the situation is her May slated opponent, Allana Jones (2-0 MMA). Allana has decided she will face off against Fox at the University of Miami’s BankUnited Center on May 24, promoter Jorge de la Noval of the Championship Fighting Alliance told NBC 6 the news on Monday night.
“A fight is a fight! I’ll knock her out!” the promoter quoted Jones as saying.
In the meantime, the debate over should Fox be able to compete as a woman is intensifying. The boxing commission may decide Fox’s fate when it meets this Friday Arpil 5.
