Transgender MMA Fighter Who Broke Woman’s Skull Named ‘Bravest Athlete in History’

Fact checked
MMA fighter Fallon Fox named bravest athlete in history

MMA Fighter Fallon Fox twice broke an opponent’s skull to win matches and is now being hailed as the “bravest athlete in history” by some in the LGBT community.

Outsports, a sports news website, gave Fox the “bravest athlete in history” title in a recent article written by Cyd Zeigler.

Fox, who is a biological man who fights female opponents, qualifies as “brave” because, according to Zeigler, “she was the target of a torrent of hatred I have literally never seen targeting an LGBTQ athlete.” reports: As intense as the “hatred” Fox may have been subjected to, it’s highly unlikely that the social media comments directed his way ever fractured his skull. The title of bravest athlete would have been much more appropriately bestowed on the biological females who dared to enter the cage with a fighter they had no hope of matching in terms of power and athletic ability.

The Post Millennial posted a commentary on Fox and the women he was in the ring with:

Fox, a male to female transgender athlete, destroyed Erika Newsome in a Coral Gables, FL, MMA fight during which she “secured a grip on Newsome’s head… With her hands gripping the back of Newsome’s skull, she delivered a massive knee, bringing her leg up while pulling her opponent’s head down. The blow landed on Newsome’s chin and dropped her, unconscious, face-first on the mat.” That was Newsome’s last pro fight.

But to Outsports, a male-bodied person beating a female bodied person unconscious constitutes bravery. Not only has Fox beat up women in the ring, won every match but one, but has weathered online attacks from the likes of Joe Rogan. I think we can all agree that getting back online after Joe Rogan has knocked you down is far braver than facing another male-bodied of your own muscle mass and size in a fight.

Fox also beat Tamikka Brents, giving her a concussion and breaking 7 orbital bones. But that’s super brave, too, taking an unfair, male-bodied advantage and using it to give female-bodied opponents brain injuries.

Vice also defended Fox in its account of his career: “Fallon was born with a peen. No one’s perfect. I throw away too much salad. She was raised as a dude, as I am told is traditional in Ohio for babies born with outwardly expressive genitalia. But that peen never did sit right with her and, since 2008, she has been a woman in mind, body, and soul.”

Brents was not told that Fox was trans before she was in the ring with him, the Post Millennial reported.

“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night,” Brents said, recounting her experience fighting Fox. “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… I still disagree with Fox fighting. Any other job or career I say have a go at it, but when it comes to a combat sport I think it just isn’t fair.”

The Post Millennial report notes that the International Olympic Committee said that it would take treatment for one year prior to competition to level the playing field between transgender men competing against females and females would need “years of hormones” to gain some male advantages.

“There are no cohesive federal laws in the U.S. to determine what makes a male eligible to compete against women, and while males have won women’s championships, female-bodied athletes have not risen to the upper levels of male competition,” the website reported.

Fox told Outsports: “My teammates had no idea I was trans. They recognized my endurance, my strength, my ability to cut weight in the same category as cisgender women. There was no idea in their minds that I didn’t belong. They weren’t thinking, ‘oh my God, she’s going to kill somebody.’”


  1. That is bullshit period.. It is a freak of nature and should not be in the ting with anyone but itself

  2. If the general public, including the LBGDQ can not see what a traverty this is. This man who fights as a womean is going to kill someone. No woman can match pound for pound the bone density and strengh of a man. Women sports are being destroyed by male interlopers who cannot compete as men so they cheat and compete as women

  3. When you pit a Male body against a smaller, weaker, Female body, the Female is going to be damaged severely! Any Fool knows that!

  4. Refuse to get into the ring with this scum, and when he or it has no opponant there can be no victory and the promoters will lose money and find that he or it is no longer an asset. Any woman or athlete that gets into the ring with it is sanctioning his and the promoters evil.

  5. A smart lawyer or DA can shut this down permanently and sue everyone up the food chain who knew this person’s gender.

  6. Ashley Montague, in his book, the natural superiority of women says, “men have over twice the upper torso (arms) body strength as women. He uses it as the only example of men’s natural superiority over women. That is not a fair fight. I identify as a 6000, year old chinese man, however it has nothing to do with sex or trying to turn myself into something I am not. Narcissism, is the whole transgender debacle in a nutshell. Narcissists have a false identity they cling to for ego gratification, then they can detach from the truth of who they really are. It is the doorway into mental illness. Why would anyone encourage that? OK there is more money in making people sicker than curing them=that goes for the entire medical profession. ASk any nurse, and they tell you straight up: “if you want to be healthy, stay away from doctors.” They will never cure cancer, there is too much money in it, to let anyone be cured.
