(Regan Hall – Pulpit & Pen) Outsports, a news outlet that focuses on LGBT issues in sports, has named transgender MMA fighter, Fallon Fox, the “bravest athlete in history.”
According to Outsports, the athlete deserves the title because “she was the target of a torrent of hatred I have literally never seen targeting an LGBTQ athlete.”
The Post Millenial 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.
