The card was packed with eleven exceptional matchups in which fighters represented several local Gulf Coast and Southeastern US gyms, including Gladiators Academy, NOLA BJJ, Team NKI, Headkicks MMA, BMAC, RONIN, Juggernaut, Gracie Barra Westchase and Soul Fighters.
The night featured an abundance of top-notch grappling and MMA excitement as seven of the eleven bouts included finishes, six ending by way of submission. And finally, fight fans got to witness the professional debut of an up-and-coming star of the sport in Tyrek Malveaux as he took on Jewel Scott in the main event.
