Bec Hyatt Believes She Did Enough to Win at Invicta FC 6 Despite What the Scorecards Read

July 20, 2013

Bec HyattBec Hyatt has become a fan favorite in Invicta FC.  Whenever the Australian mixed martial artist competes in the American-based all-female fight promotion, the crowd regularly chants, “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie…”

In her fight with 18-year-old Japanese rising star Mizuki Inoue on July 13, it was no different.  The crowd was on her side, but the scorecards were not.

Hyatt (5-3) lost by unanimous decision, but believes she should have had her hand raised at the end of the three-round bout.

“I guess I learned my lesson; don’t leave it in the hands of the judges,” said Hyatt during the Invicta FC 6 post-fight press conference.

Hyatt feels that she won the opening and closing rounds of the fight.

“I feel like my dominant position at the end of round one won me that round, and in round three I got in my groove,” she said.  “I feel like I won rounds one and three, but the judges saw it different.”

Despite her disagreement with the judges over who won the fight, Hyatt had nothing but positive comments to say about her opponent.

“Mizuki is tough.  She’s 18 years old and an amazing athlete.  I’m disappointed.  I hate losing.  I’m a sore loser.  I take my ball and go home.  I guess I could have done better.  I always learn more from a loss than I do a win, so it’s back to the drawing board,” she said.

“Mizuki was good.  She brought it to me.  She said she was going to stand and bang and I was like, they always say that, but she did.  It was a good fight.”

  1. I gave round 1 and 3 to Inoue, i feel judges scored the match correctly. That 18yo prodigy is one of the best boxer i ever seen in mma, she’s a shootboxing champ too, and clearly outscored Bec in round 2, round 3 was Bec due to more aggression but Inoue had more accuracy and round 1 was the closest, both clinched a lot but Inoue had a takedown and an armbar attempt in the last minute, Bec reversed it and transitioned to a gnp only in the last 15 secs.

    • on the money.

    • you gave inoue round 1 and 3 but not 2. rnd 2 was inoue’s most dominant round. she was on top of hyatt for 4 minutes and round 3 was hyatts most dominant round.

      • oh sorry I wos wrong in the first statement, yea I mean rounds 1 and 2 for Inoue

    • Inoue’s short punches and elbows in the clinch were fast and accurate. Hyatt was unable to create any space and looked sluggish until the third round.

  2. I’m a big Bec Hyatt fan, but Inoue won that fight. Bec will only come back stronger though. In some ways watching that fight was painful, because I have so much respect for both girls I didn’t want either of them to lose.

    • Same feelings … SW is a very talentful division with a lot of young prospects and sure Bec will improve more and more …
      disappointed for the Bec-Inoue, Torres-Namajunas and Hamasaki-Gadelha matchups, all fighters I like along with Calderwood and Kankanpaa in the division
