"But she walked into the gym, and I got to know her...."

Apologies if anyone has already posted this...

GQ has reporter Nancy Hass cover Fallon Fox before/during her fight with Ashlee Evans-Smith. It is a lovely, humanizing piece.

There are a few parts in the story where I have to wonder whether the reporter just took someone's word for it, or actually did some verification (such as claims about strength). But for the most part, the article seems flattering to the sport of MMA and the dedication it takes for anyone to pursue it.

It won't settle the question of when/if/how transgender fighters should be included in MMA and probably won't change any minds, but I enjoyed this peak into her life.
