Retired MMA fighter Fallon Fox took to social media to gloat about “holding the record” for punching trans-exclusionary radical feminists (TERFS).

Fox, 46, is known as the first openly transgender MMA fighter. Since coming out as transgender on March 5, 2013, in an interview with Cyd Zeigler, Fox has made it her priority to shed light on the world of trans rights and issues, as seen on her social media, with the heated topics and controversial debates.

At the beginning of the month, Fox took to her Twitter account to brag about punching TERFS three times, as well as holding the record.

Fallon Fox Brags Punching TERFS

“There’s been three times where I’ve punched a TERF in the face. I think I hold the record. I’m the most based trans person on earth. #MMA #DontHate #TotallyLegal #TotallyWorthIt.”

Fox also mentioned fellow trans MMA fighter Alana Mclaughlin in the replies, indicating she should “catch up” to her. Although claiming the achievement, the public didn’t take too well to the post.

The 42-year-old finished her martial arts career with a record of (5-1), her most recent outing coming in 2014 with a controversial victory over Tamikka Brents, which resulted in Brents suffering multiple broken orbital bones and several head injuries Fox posted the collage of images of the fight in her Twitter post.

It has always been a heated debate between fans, fellow fighters, and the media about trans women transitioning to the women’s divisions, and having a physical advantage. UFC commentator, and analyst Joe Rogan, was among many who blasted Fox.

Joe Rogan Talks Fallon Fox

“She calls herself a woman but… I tend to disagree. And, uh, she, um… she used to be a man but now she has had, she’s a transgender which is (the) official term that means you’ve gone through it, right? And she wants to be able to fight women in MMA. I say no f***ing way.

I say if you had a dick at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a dick. You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f***ing man. That’s a man, OK? You can’t have… that’s… I don’t care if you don’t have a dick any more…”

Since retiring from the sport, Fox has played a leading role in spreading awareness on trans rights, and continues to make her voice, as well as fellow trans athletes, voices heard.

Former MMA fighter Fallon Fox bragged on social media about “holding the record” for punching TERFS.

For clarification, TERF is the acronym for trans-exclusionary radical feminist.

As the first openly transgender MMA fighter, Fox has made it her duty to inform the world of trans rights and issues. Her social media is filled with data and personal opinions retorting anti-trans agendas.

And recently, Fox took to her Twitter account to gloat about holding the number one spot in punching TERFS.

“There’s been three times where I’ve punched a TERF in the face. I think I hold the record. I’m the most based trans person on earth. #MMA #DontHate #TotallyLegal #TotallyWorthIt.”

Fox included trans mixed martial artist Alana Mclaughlin in the post, telling her to”catch up” to her. However proud she is of the self-proclaimed accomplishment, the post was received negatively in the comments.

Fox’s last fight in 2014 against Tamikka Brents, who is pictured in the collage of the Twitter post, came under heavy fire. Brents suffered a few injuries to the head including several broken orbital bones.

The controversy of trans women in sports goes back many years and is extremely prevalent in MMA.

When Fox revealed she was trans back in 2013, it sparked a lot of hate from fighters and MMA fans. Particularly, Joe Rogan and Ronda Rousey blasted her on multiple occasions for fighting in the women’s division.

3 TKOs and 2 submissions make up the five wins on Fox’s MMA record. She suffered only one loss, given by Ashley Evans-Smith by TKO in the third round.

Since retiring from MMA, Fox dedicates her time to being an advocate for trans rights.

Retired trans MMA fighter Fallon Fox turns down an offer to be part of a documentary called the “Gender Unity Project”.

Fox is the first openly transgender fighter. She had a successful MMA run with 5 wins and only 1 loss in her professional career.

Not a single one of her fights went to decision. Following her last win in 2014 versus Tamikka Brents, she retired.

As a transgender fighter, Fox was no stranger to criticism within the sport. UFC commentator Joe Rogan had an issue with her competing in the women’s division. Likewise, Ronda Rousey believes it is unfair to allow a male-born transgender fighter in the women’s league.

Fox tries to educate people about the community. As an activist for trans rights, she recently brought some data to the surface to insist that transgender athletes do not have the upper hand.

The documentary may have been a chance to shed some more positive light on transgender persons, however; Fox felt the proposal was disingenuous.

After a video call, she deemed the team “sketchy and ignorant of trans issues,” according to Blade.

Suspicion rose around conservative podcast host Matt Walsh and his team when transgender activist Eli Erlick called them out via Twitter. Erlick became suspicious after a “film student” named “Makenna Lynn” contacted her last month.

Through research, Erlick allegedly discovered Walsh and his podcast team are trying to scam transgender activists into appearing on a documentary called “Gender Unity Project.”

Numerous people were contacted for the documentary, including the mother of a transgender teenager, Debi Jackson, and transgender MMA fighter Alanna McLaughlin.

Debi’s daughter, Avery Jackson, appeared on the cover of National Geographic when she was just 9 years old and became the first transgender to be on the cover of the historical magazine.

McLaughlin is also an advocate for trans rights and won her MMA debut by submission last September.

Since the callout on Twitter, Walsh has yet to make any statements in regards to the accusations.

What are your thoughts on Matt Walsh potentially creating a documentary scam targeting the transgender community?

Fallon Fox Argues In Favor Of Transgender Athletes, Attempts To Debunk Claims

Former transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox is looking to continue the conversation regarding transgenders competing against cisgender individuals.

Fox hasn’t competed in MMA since winning against Tamikka Brents in 2014 in CCCW. Before that, she had competed in KOTC and CFA against the likes of Ashlee Evans-Smith and Ericka Newsome.

Now a retired athlete, Fox is spending her time as an activist on a variety of LGBTQ issues, including transgenders in sports. This comes after Alana McLaughlin made her MMA debut recently and won in dominant fashion, despite being born a biological male.

During a recent thread on her Twitter page, Fox shared data that could arguably support her position on transgenders in sports.

“Don’t come at me with ‘trans women have an advantage over cis women with endurance’ ever again,” Fox said. “Trans athlete Isaac Henig is a trans man who has never been on HRT (testosterone), & he just beat trans woman Lia Thomas who has been on HRT for over 2yrs. Also, some cisgender women had faster times than Lia Thomas this time around.”

Fallon Fox Has Been Considered One Of The Centerpieces Of The Transgender Athlete Discussion

Fox first rose to prominence in 2014 when former bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and UFC commentator Joe Rogan were a few big names to criticize her. She’s also taken aim at politicians for policies she and others view as transphobic.

It’s unclear if transgender athletes will be able to compete in larger MMA promotions down the line, but Fox and others are keen on bringing the fight forward.

Fallon Fox has presented data in an attempt to debunk the claim that transgender female athletes have a physical advantage over cisgender female athletes.

The topic of transgender women competing against cisgender women in sports has been a hot topic in recent months. This includes MMA, where transgender female Alana McLaughlin made her victorious debut last September.

But before McLaughlin, there was Fallon Fox, who was the first transgender MMA athlete to gain media attention during her stint as an active fighter from 2011-2014. Fox went 5-1 in her career, with her sole loss coming to the UFC’s Ashlee Evans-Smith in 2013.

Not unlike McLaughlin, Fox was subject to her fair share of criticism. She particularly had conflict with Joe Rogan and Ronda Rousey in 2014, which coincidentally is the last year she competed.

Eight years later, Fox has taken it upon herself to again speak up on behalf of transgender female athletes competing against cisgender female athletes with a pair of social media posts that share medical information that Fox believes debunks any claims of advantages for transgender women over cisgender women. You can view the posts below.

“New research finds trans women that undergo HRT their hemoglobin levels reduce to the normal F range within just 3–4 months & their Vo2 Max in 4-6 months & their muscle reduces mass 9.4 % in just the first 12 months of T deprivation,” she posted along with an accompanying graph of medical data.

“Trans athlete Isaac Henig is a trans man who has never been on HRT (testosterone), & he just beat trans woman Lia Thomas who has been on HRT for over 2yrs. Also, some cisgender women had faster times than Lia Thomas this time around,” she posted along with an article sharing an anecdotal story to support her argument.

Alana McLaughlin is yet to compete again since her debut victory. In the meantime, like Fox, she, too, is serving as an advocate for transgender individuals, including targeting right-wing politicians for what she considered to be anti-trans legislation.

What are your thoughts on Fallon Fox’s supporting evidence that transgender female athletes are not at an advantage over cisgender female athletes?
