They call her "The Queen of Swords" in the cage, but in the press, some call her unrepeatable things. After undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2006, she chose "Fallon Fox."

By definition, Fallon means superiority. Fox chuckled when talking about the meaning, saying, “I've heard a lot of different meanings of the name. What I first found was that it means 'the girl who is in charge.' It kind of describes me.”

Her nickname is just as appropriate. When the Queen of Swords is victorious, she spins her imaginary sword and sheaths it back in its rightful holster as a post-fight celebration, akin to Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian.

Fox's monicker is “kind of a long story,” she explained. A transgender friend on Facebook wrote a post using the name, sparking her interest.
