A winner of four fights in a row, Hyatt steps into the title fight to take on Esparza with a chance to claim the first ever Invicta 115lb title.

With Hyatt out of her originally scheduled fight, Joanne Calderwood now faces Livia Van Plettenber, who has recently been working under the tutelage of former UFC middleweigiht contender Matt Lindland.

    glad they found a replacement for the main event and still were able to keep calderwood on the card.

      Calderwood herself should have been the replacement, in my opinion. She’s undefeated, and dominated at Invicta 3. Hyatt, on the other hand, is making her debut with the promotion. But my opinion is irrelevant now, I guess. Hyatt’s in, and that’s that.

    Other fighters were given the chance to fight Esparza and declined… Bec Hyatt is a competitor and I have a good feeling she’s going to win. Will see on Jan 5th.

    Esparza all the way….
