Invicta has also named the replacement for Hyatt in her fight with Joanne Calderwood (4-0). Calderwood will now face Livia von Plettenberg (1-0).

Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp said: "Both Bec Hyatt's and Carla Esparza's willingness to take on a new opponent in such a high-stakes championship fight is extremely admirable and shows what true warriors are made of they will fight anyone, anytime anywhere. By the same token, Joanne Calderwood and Liva von Plettenberg should be commended for accepting the bout against each other on such short notice. They have a tremendous warrior's spirit and it will show on fight night."
