The house was rocking Friday night at the Holiday Inn as Brutaal Genesis invaded Austin. There was a nice turnout, and although there were a few last-minute changes, the crowd got its money's worth.

The action started off in the bantamweight division as John Bygrave of Mankato MMA squared off against Tanner Reeve, who trains with Fight or Die out of Albert Lea. Both Fighters came out strong from the sound of the bell. But Bygrave was getting the upper hand in the standup as he continued to push the pace and landed a series of combinations.

Before long, Reeve shot in for a takedown, which was stuffed by Bygrave but a scramble ensued.  Once on the ground, Bygrave went for submission attempts one after another, switching back and forth from armbar to triangle attempts.

Reeve slammed Bygrave three different times. After the third slam, Bygrave was able to secure the triangle and roll Reeve onto his back to earn the victory 2:25 into the first round by mounted triangle choke.

The second fight of the night turned out to be a barnburner as Tyler Jacobs of the Mario Roberto Jiu-Jitsu Academy squared up against Dalton Albrent of Mankato MMA at a catch weight of 160 pounds. The first round consisted of a lot of standup as the much taller Albrent tried to utilize his reach advantage.

Both fighters had a series of nice exchanges. The second round proved to be much of the same,
