Transgender fighter Fallon Fox record still stay’s perfect at 3-0, as she submitted Allanna Jones with a third-round shin choke and advanced to the Championship Fighting Alliance women’s featherweight tournament at CFA 11 on Friday at the Bank United Center in Coral Gables, Fla. Jones tapped 3:36 into round three.
Fox came out very aggressive in the first round, continually moving forward and throwing leg kicks and right jabs. Jones held her own, as she tried to counter with jabs to the midsection and left hooks. Fox took the fight to the floor in all three rounds, working with punches and elbows from the guard before shucking off an armbar attempt. From there, “The Queen of Swords” applied the finishing hold, cutting off Jones’ blood supply on one side with a north-south headlock while pinching the other artery with her shin bone.
Fox advances to the final of the women’s featherweight tournament, where she will face Ashlee Evans-Smith for a shot at $20,000.
“I noticed [Jones] just tried to get away from me a lot. It was hard to catch up to her, but I did in the end, so that was pretty awesome,” Fox said. “It’s going to be an awesome match. Ashlee Smith is actually a little bit bigger than me. It’s going to be a hard challenge, but we’re going to rock and win this $20,000.”
