Championship Fighting Alliance (CFA) Promoter Jorge de la Noval is resuming their women’s featherweight tournament after it was paused when competitor Fallon Fox was named as a transgender fighter.
“Her manager spoke to the commission and her license is active,” wrote Noval via a text message to MMA Junkie. “According to him, they said she was cleared to fight.”
Fox’s management team said she may compete while her fight license is under investigation by the athletic commission.
In the quarterfinals of the tournament, Fox needed 39 seconds for the KO victory. She takes on Allana Jones in the semifinals. Jones’ manager said the decision wasn’t final and as of last week Jones didn’t want the fight.
CFA 11 is May 24 from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL. Noval said a TV deal is in the works.
