Invicta strawweight star Bec Hyatt (pictured) isn’t going to back down to her husband, so there’s no way in hell she’s gonna turn down a mean muggin’ session with male-turned-female fighter Fallon Fox – particularly since Fox started squinting her eyes first.
There were reports Fox attended this month’s Invicta FC 5 event, which prompted many to believe the transgender scrapper might try to make a run in the all-women’s MMA promotion. However, the rumor mill claimed Invicta wasn’t interested because Fox was involved in some sort of “incident” on game day.
No subsequent news materialized about the alleged drama, until now…
Here is what Hyatt wrote on her official Facebook page late Monday night:
“Re: Myself & Fallon Fox 🙂
This story is starting to pick up through MMA media & forums so I figure I should address it to make sure nobody makes up baloney & paints either of us wrongly!!
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 🙂
To Fallon’s credit, she did apologize to me at the after party but it was an unwelcome distraction to my fight as when it all sunk in, I was actually more pissed off about what happened in the lobby then all the stuff my opponent had said to me LOL!! I couldn’t even enjoy my popcorn at the movies 🙁 I’m only a 115lbs fighter but if I won’t back down to my much bigger & more skilled fighter husband, I certainly am not backing down to Fallon Fox!!
In any event, the reason I never made this public before or addressed it was because I have no doubt Fallon wanted it to be public & talked about. Low & behold, here we are now discussing it after someone has leaked it to media. Enjoy!! 😉 <3″
