Only hours before her submission win on April 8, Hyatt had a altercation with transgender Featherweight Fallon Fox in the hotel lobby.

Former Invicta FC Strawweight contender Bec Hyatt got her first win since losing her shot at the title to Carla Esparza back in January. It only took her 3 and a half minutes to get past her then undefeated opponent Jasminka Cive. Hyatt unloaded on Cive with ground and pound from mount before locking on the fight ending armbar.

However, only hours before her sanctioned bout, Hyatt had another heated exchange with transgender fighter Fallon Fox in the hotel lobby. Hyatt explained the altercation on her Facebook page:

It's true that Fallon & I had a "run in" on fight morning in the hotel lobby. Nothing physical, just an unwelcome distraction from my fight later that night. Long story short... I was on my phone Facebook training, as I do, when my husband told me to look up to the second floor balcony. Sure enough I was greeted by Fallon (along with another female fighter??) staring meanie daggers at me & if looks could kill... boy would I be dead LOL!! A Fallon Fox mean mug makes Jasminka Cive's look child's play ;)

As you'd all know though, I have a chip on my shoulder myself & am very stubborn, so I gladly partook in the silent staring contest for a minute or so until I inquired as to why she was actually staring at me. Fallon replied with "I'll do what I want", to which I laughed, said she is a joke & went back to my Facebook training in preparation of the nights contest. I can't remember exactly what Fallon then said, but it was along the lines of "I'm coming down there" in an angrier tone & as she went to put on her jacket, Invicta Fighting Championships matchmaker Janet Martin came out of an elevator & started talking to me. When I looked back up, Fallon & her friend were gone. The second half of our exchange was caught on camera but I won't be releasing it :)

Hyatt explained that Fox did apologize at the after party but the whole thing was "an unwelcome distraction." She also makes it clear that she believes Fallon was the one who started the talk about the incident.

"Rowdy" is already set for her next fight at Invicta 6 on July 13. She'll face Mizuki Inoue at the American Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO.
