Invicta FC strawweight contender Bec Hyatt took to her official Facebook fan page on Jan. 18 to let fans know about her recent visit to an Australian children's hospital, where she met with young MMA supporters in need of a little cheer.
Hyatt, 23, who made the visit along with The Ultimate Fighter: Smashes contestant Ben "Manimal" Wall, met with a young boy suffering from a bone infection, and she was pleased to bring a smile to his face.
"Myself & UFC Smashes competitor Ben 'Manimal' Wall visited the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane today to see Zach Stockton, a huge MMA fan who also trains whenever he can but is currently stuck in the hospital with a bone infection," Hyatt wrote as a photo caption. "I had a bone infection around his age so I know exactly what he is going through & the look on his face when we walked in was priceless!!"
From humble beginnings as a 15-bed hospital for sick children in 1878, the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) Brisbane is now the largest specialist children's hospital in Queensland.
Hyatt and Wall volunteered their time to bring some joy to children in need. The children enjoyed some private time with some of their favorite MMA stars, and it was a fantastic experience for all involved.
Hyatt, who lost to Carla Esparza on Jan. 5 at Invicta FC 4, is one of the hottest up-and-coming MMA stars in the world.
She is expected to appear on the Invicta FC 5 card slated for Apr. 6 in Irvine, Calif. As for Wall, he is an undefeated 6-0 in his MMA career.
