Fallon Fox’s upcoming opponent has confirmed she will take the fight at CFA 11, according to the promotion’s CEO Jorge De La Noval. Allanna Jones had previously stated she didn’t think it was fair for the ousted transgender Fox to compete with other women.
“Everyone’s following the story on Fallon obviously because of the controversy, but, the fact Allanna is stepping up and taking it is huge,” said Noval to MMA Fighting.
Jones made the decision sometime during the week after speaking with her coaches and managers.
In the opening round of the tournament, Jones took a decision to Kelsey De Santis. Fox took a one minute stoppage.
They meet in the semifinals to crown CFA’s first women’s champion. That goes down May 24 from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL. The tournament had been paused since Fox was named as a transgender fighter in early March. Noval is 70 percent certain that the card will air on TV.
