Bec Hyatt vs. Joanne Calderwood


Bec “Rowdy” Hyatt said in a Nov. 28 interview with Katana that the Aussie mixed martial arts scene is slowly catching up to MMA-savvy countries like Brazil and the United States.

Hyatt, who fights Joanne Calderwood on Jan. 5 at Invicta FC 4, has a clear message for Aussie promoters who may be hesitant to book females on their fight cards.

“It was only just over a year ago where most promoters were hesitant on booking females to fight and opportunities were few and far between but now it seems most promoters want at least one female fight on their card per event which is fantastic,” Hyatt said. “We have two arms, two legs and a heartbeat just like any male fighter so let us bang, bro!”

Hyatt will have the opportunity to show off her unique brand of “stylish violence” when she makes her U.S. debut in the Invicta FC ranks.

Hyatt admits that Calderwood is a tough opponent, and she guarantees that someone is going to get knocked out come Jan. 5.

“Joanne is a beast and obviously she will be my toughest test to date,” Hyatt said. “Anyone that has seen me fight knows that it’s kill or be killed with me and that I look for the finish 100%, so this fight will not be any different!”

Hyatt, 23, is a winner of four straight bouts, while Calderwood is also riding a four-fight win streak.

“Defeating her on January 5th will be a bigger statement than any of my words could ever be and I can guarantee that one of us is taking a bitter sweet journey to sleepy land to have a tea party with my buddy the muffin man, who I met in my debut fight,” Hyatt said.

Hyatt was referring to the brutal head kick knockout she suffered on Oct. 15, 2011, in a fight against Rhiannon Thompson. Since that loss, it’s been all uphill for Hyatt’s career.

“It still feels a little bit surreal but it had been my goal from the very beginning of Invicta’s arrival to be a part of the organization so I’m ecstatic to been given this opportunity,” Hyatt said. “I couldn’t have signed the paperwork any quicker and to be the first ever Australian to be fighting in the pinnacle of WMMA is something I’m very proud of.”

No news reports outside of the result but Belgium’s Delfine Persoon is a punching machine so no surprises here. I invite you to check out her fight against Lucia Morelli. Good stuff here.

Niki Wesner turns pro

Austrians are not exactly known for their fighting skill but Viennese Niki Wesner won the world amateur championships and turns pro today. Despite her championship pedigree, Wesner is about as obscure as they come as I found no video and only two pictures of her. She has the looks so if she can bring the skills she may be going places. Surely she will build up a big record fighting soft touches in western Europe.
