Before undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2006, Fallon Fox was a “manly man” who gave no indication that he was uncomfortable in his body, according to a report by TMZ.
An ex-girlfriend of the transgender fighter told TMZ that she never suspected Fox would become a transsexual while the two were dating. According to the report, Fox was born Boyd Burton and went by “Woody,” in reference to the character Woody Boyd from the television series “Cheers,” while he served in the Navy. The ex-girlfriend’s name was not given in the story. TMZ also released a photo (above) of Fox before and after her gender reassignment surgery.
Fox is 2-0 in professional mixed martial arts competition, most recently scoring a 39-second knockout of Ericka Newsome at CFA 10 on March 2. Fox has recently stated that she would like to eventually fight for the UFC.
