Hyatt's physical appearance is vastly different from her siblings, as her features are far lighter. The Aussie striker says her younger brother, along with her other siblings, have brown hair and brown eyes.
"When I was little my brother and sisters told everyone I was adopted because I was the only one with blonde hair and blue eyes," Hyatt said.
Hyatt, who fights undefeated Austrian warrior Jasminka Cive on Apr. 5 at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri, did not go into detail on the effect such comments had on her psyche, but perhaps it explains why she turned to fighting to let out some steam.
Childhood bullying has existed in neighborhoods, schools and families for centuries, and close to half of all children will experience teasing at some point while they are in primary or secondary school.
Child bullying behavior can be a precursor to issues later in life, especially violent activity. Luckily, Hyatt turned to stylish violence inside the cage, rather than outside of it.
Hyatt's siblings may have just been joking around, but teasing can be hurtful on many levels. Nobody wants to feel like they are an outcast from the rest of their siblings, so it's important to be a buddy rather than a bully.
Hyatt wants all the lovely children of the world to know it's always best to be respectful and kind to others, and to follow her on Twitter @RowdyBec.
