The second openly transgender MMA fighter in the US has won her debut match - reigniting the debate over trans women in sports.
Alana McLaughlin, 38, won her first professional fight in the Combate Global prelims Friday against Celine Provost, ending the match with a rear-naked choke 3 minutes and 32 seconds into the second round.
'Tonight McLaughlin fought and beat a biological woman... what a shock.'
MMA commentator @SafeBetMMA wrote: 'I think people can identify with whatever they like but I don't think this has a place in combat sports.'
