As you know I am open minded and accepting toward all things LGBT, but I don't have any solutions to that problem.
The answer is misleadingly simple. It's easy to "adequately prepare" for a fight like that because it's like preparing for any other female fighter. The commission has licensed them as a female to fight, their body chemistry, chromosomes being the exception, is female. It would be similar to preparing to fight Cyborg, in my eyes, you look at the footage of her previous fights, analyze the style and modify to account for any 'strength bonus' she appears to have.
