Should an athlete who was born a man, but then became a female be allowed to compete in professional MMA against other females? The question is hotly debated but in the case of Fallon Fox, the regulatory body that matters the most has made their decision:

An investigation into Fox’s fight license is now closed, according to a ruling today by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
