The MMARising website came out swinging Monday as they broke the news of two planned major bouts for two major promotions in April.

InvictaFC 4 main-eventer Bec Hyatt will return to Invicta 5 as she takes on undefeated Austrian fighter Jasminka Cive.

Hyatt (4-2) is coming off an impressive decision loss to strawweight champ Carla Esparza and is looking to get her first win at Invicta. Austria’s Cive (5-0) has finished all of her opponents with four straight TKOs going into the bout. She will be dropping to 115 to take on Hyatt.

Invicta has scrapped plans to have the event in Irvine, CA, and a move to the Missouri side of Kansas City is looking more likely.

An event location and viewing options will be announced in the next few weeks. InvictaFC 5 will take place April 6.






Coming off one of the biggest wins of her career, #1 Unified flyweight Jessica Eye will take on #8 ranked Munah Holland at Bellator 95 April 4th in Atlantic City, NJ.

The WMMA  Awards Flyweight of the Year, Eye (9-1) defeated Zoila Gurgel this past December via first round standing triangle choke, which won Submission of the Year. She is on a six fight win streak.

Holland is coming off a decision loss to #5 ranked Michelle Ould. Before the loss, Holland was on a four fight win streak, including wins over Marianna Kheyfets and Carina Damm.

The bout will most likely be televised on Spike TV live on April 4.
