Arrangements are lining up for Fallon Fox and her next MMA bout, as she'll reportedly face regional fighter Allanna Jones in the Championship Fighting Alliance on May 24. MMA Fighting recently spoke with the CEO of the Florida-based promotion, Jorge De La Noval, who stated that Jones didn't immediately take the bout: "Everyone's following the story on Fallon obviously because of the controversy, but, the fact Allanna is stepping up and taking it is huge," [Noval] said. De La Noval said he has spoken with Jones several times in the past week as she weighed her decision. He said that she was always in favor of taking the bout, but first wanted to hear the concerns of her coaches and managers. Outed as a 37-year-old male-to-female transgendered athlete, Fox's name has been widely circulated around the Internet during the last few weeks.
