Transgender Fighter Fallon Fox Defeated By Ashlee Evans-Smith At CFA 12

Fallon Fox, the fighter who caused controversy earlier this year for failing to disclose that she was a post-op transexual while fighting in woman’s mixed martial arts, lost last night for the first time in her career.

Fighting at CFA 12, Ashlee Evans-Smith was able to get the better of Fox several times on the mat during the fight, and late in the third round was able to get into full mount and rain down punches until the referee called an end to the contest, handing her the TKO victory.

“She put up a fight, but I could feel her really getting tired,” Evans-Smith said afterwards.

Evans-Smith improves her record to 2-0 thanks to this win, while Fox slips to 3-1.
