Transgender MMA fighter beats male opponent, says it would be unfair to fight women

• washingtonpost.com By Victor Morton

Not only is Brazilian MMA fighter Anne Veriato transitioning in the opposite manner (from male to female) but she competes in the opposite manner (against men).

And unlike the Texas high-school wrestler, Veriato said it'd be unfair for her to fight against women, as Beggs is doing.

At Mr. Cage 34 last weekend in Manaus, Veriato had her first MMA fight and defeated Railson Paixao by a unanimous decision, despite losing a point for an illegal knee.

Veriato already had success doing jiu-jitsu shows against men before transitioning to MMA. And she said she should only fight men.
