A former U.S. special forces soldier who now identifies as female annihilated his/her opponent in a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) match on Friday night.

Alana McLaughlin, the second openly transgender fighter to compete in MMA in the U.S., won via submission over Celine Provost at the Combate Global prelims in Miami.

The 38-year-old McLaughlin used a rear-naked choke against Provost to end the match in the second round, reports say.

“Alana” McLaughlin, born a male named Ryan, reportedly “transitioned” 5 years ago.

"The mat was covered in blood after McLaughlin beat the crap out of Celine Provost," the Gateway Pundit noted.

I’m just another step along the way and it’s my great hope that there are more to follow behind me.”
