‘Female’ Transgender fighter, Alana McLaughlin, who was formerly a biologically male member of the US special forces won their fight against a female opponent via rear naked choke.
As The Daily Wire reports:
In order for McLaughlin to compete, the fighter had to pass a hormone panel, which McLaughlin did. McLaughlin said that it was difficult to find a female opponent willing to get into the ring for the fight, regardless.
“It was a nightmare trying to find an opponent,” McLaughlin said before the bout. “I have nothing but respect for [Provost].”
McLaughlin began transitioning upon leaving the military in 2010 and started training for Friday night’s fight last year.
