You may say that Fallon Fox will never make it in the big leagues, but if transexuals are approved to fight in WMMA, then surely that would mean more transexuals will be appearing in the WMMA scene. Who knows, there might be a legit talent amongst them. Then, should they be allowed to fight in the UFC? The women's champion doesn't think it is fair to for females to fight transexuals, should the champion be forced to fight one since transexuals are approved by the commissions and all the regulatory bodies?
The MMA scene is constantly evolving, this may be the next evolution. The commissions exist in part to insure fighter safety and they make informed, science based decisions. If the commissions license a fighter to fight, and they earn a title shot then they absolutely should get the shot. The champion needs to be informed of their past though, so they can adequately prepare.
