By Brady Crytzer
Eric "Butterbean" Esch secured his first mixed martial arts victory by defeating Walley Keenboom via submission in the opening session of their three round contest on Friday, December 9th in Evansville, IN. After a successful takedown by Keenboom, "Butterbean" capitalized on a botched submission attempt by reversing the position and sinking in a fight ending front choke at 2:37 of the first round. The heavyweight clash headlined the first installment of the legendary Royce Gracie's newest promotion "FightFest." "Butterbean's" MMA record now improves to 1-1-1 while Keenboom remains winless at 0-2.
