Alchemist Management, home to many of the top MMA fighters in the world, including Rory MacDonald, Nate Marquardt, Gegard Mousasi, Stefan Struve and Liz Carmouche, is happy to announce the signing of Hyatt to a management agreement.
Alchemist, a California-based company, contributes to every aspect of a fighter’s life, including fight training, digital and traditional media development, cross-over industry exposure, business advisory services, corporate sponsorship development and preparedness for life after fighting.
“We at Alchemist are thrilled to have one of the worlds most popular female fighters join our incredible roster of mixed martial artists, which includes Liz Carmouche, who will make her UFC debut in the main event of UFC 157 on February 23rd," said Alchemist partner Charles McCarthy. "Carmouche along with Ronda Rousey will become the first ever female fighters to compete inside the Octagon. We are committed to working with the top talent in the sport of MMA and feel that Bec fits right in with what we are trying to accomplish.”
Hyatt, a 23-year-old Aussie who holds a 4-2 record, is known for her unique look, aggressive fighting style and an engaging personality.
She is coming off a loss to Carla Esparza at Invicta FC 4, but she proved to be a true gamer by standing in with the No. 4-ranked strawweight in the world for 25 grueling minutes.
Hyatt is slated to fight at Invicta FC 5. Her opponent has not yet been announced.
“I’m super excited to sign with a management firm to the standard of Alchemist and have full belief that this well rounded team can and will take me to the next level I wish to achieve," Hyatt said. "I’m looking forward to a big 2013 under their guidance. With over fifteen managers and teams to choose from this past fortnight, Alchemist stood out above the rest due to their roster, personal approach and professional manner. The fact that a former fighter, one who has been through the trial and tribulations I’m experiencing at the moment is a part of the team and has been in direct contact with me along the way is what sealed the deal!"
Hyatt became a media darling in the U.S. in the lead-up to her tilt against Esparza. She was featured in Sports Illustrated, and on the main page of the Yahoo! Sports MMA site. Hyatt hopes to further her presence on the women's MMA scene in 2013, and for years to come.
"My next fight will be in April on the Invicta Fighting Championships 5 card," Hyatt added. "I’m so honored to be a part of such a professional organization and now having signed with Alchemist you can certainly say I’m living the dream! i told the world I would prove how tough us Aussie girls are at the last Invicta event. Now, after undoubtedly proving that, it’s time to earn my way back to a title shot in the 115lbs division. I promise you all ridiculously stylish violence in April!”
