we start with the ladies, where sometimes the word quick just does not do the trick. check this sequence out, if you can call it that. fight starts, takedown, tapout. you don't need to time it, i got you, 11 seconds and this one is over. tori crowder victorious. she started drilling that exact move just 3 weeks ago. "so i asked my coach if he could drill it with me. i just felt like i would be paid off." okay so that one was quick. but there are still a lot more fights to be had. and check out the atmosphere in the building. this happening over at the ramada inn convention center. it is still going on right now. they have been going since 7. but honestly, the quick card would show it's face yet again. here we go moments into this one between tony lopez and crayton jackson both from klamath falls. lopez throws the uppercut. and now he is going to throw a lot more over the next several seconds. it seemed like the ref would stop it just a little bit earlier, but lopez does not hold back until he gets the job done. that is the first fight and first win for lopez. "i started training a couple months ago, 5-6 months ago. to be honest, i have not got into any gyms, i have been doing all my training at home. i am really self-motivated." it is hard to imagine what you would think in the moment you win a fight like that, after training at home for months. his answer though was immediate. "my son, my boy. i can't wait to let him know that daddy won. he is my motivation. i do it for him. i want to make a career out of it. i am doing it all for my son." sportsmanship was a huge theme on the night. i did not see a single fight that did not end with a hug between the two fighters. they trained hard, the passion came out. some ended quick, but sometimes that is how the fight goes. the medford mustangs played
