Fallon "The Queen of Swords" Fox fights this Friday night, May 24th, against Allanna "Hands of Stone" Jones in the co-main event at CFA 11 on AXS TV.  There have been many things said and written about Fox and whether or not she should be fighting inside of the cage.  Most of it has been uninformed opinions.  People reacting emotionally to something that is different that they do not understand and it becomes easier to parrot other people's thoughts and opinions instead of doing research and thinking for oneself.  I have not looked at all of the science that is out there myself.  I have read and heard  a little from both sides of the argument and the one thing that is clear is there is not nearly enough research done to definitively answer one way or the other.  For me, the commission has licensed her and feels that she does not have an advantage because of her previous gender.  They have done the necessary research and have given Fox her license to fight. What exactly constitutes an advantage in MMA?  And what is fair?  Is it fair that Jon Jones has an insane reach and length?  It is a clear advantage for him.  Jose Aldo spent years playing soccer and he now has devastating leg kicks.  Is that fair?  Every fighter that enters into the cage has advantages and disadvantages versus their opponent.  Some are genetic, others are through training.  It is how they use them, it is about not making mistakes and capitalizing when your opponent makes their mistakes.  It is about who has the heart and the desire.  That fire that burns inside.  Every fighter fights many little individual private battles before they enter the cage.  Fox is no different except for her many of those battles have become public.  All over what may or may not be an advantage for her and could turn out to be a disadvantage for her. Fallon is happy and ready to fight I have heard some people walking the politically correct tightrope by saying that they support her life choice but she should be expected to give up her dream of being a fighter.  Maybe it is easy for some people to be dismissive of someone else's dreams because they have given up on their own along time ago or did not have the courage to go for it in the first place.  When they see Fox being courageous not only in just being true to herself but keeping her dream alive they should celebrate her bravery.  This country was founded on the hopes and dreams of people like Fox having the courage to follow the difficult path to achieve their dreams.  To just be who they are inside.  To be true to oneself is something we all should be allowed to do. All Fallon Fox is looking for is the same respect and dignity that is due to every person, and the chance to live her dreams.  In a world where so many people give up on their dreams let us give our support to some one who is daring to live theirs.   This Friday night for up to fifteen minutes all the noise will fade into the background as Fox will get to fight Jones.  Jones has not gotten caught up in the noise and is treating Fox as her next opponent.  Hopefully soon that is how everybody will look at her future fights.  As just two opponents in the cage fighting.  Trying to live their dreams.  Tune in this Friday night on AXS TV for CFA 11 and support all of the fighters who continue to follow their dreams.   This article was written by Dwayne Wolff for hov-mma Order Fallon Fox's official CFA 11 walk out here
