Loveland vs. Crispim Wiki Update Wiki

Loveland and Crispim met in the co-main event at Tachi Palace Fights 13 for the Vacant Bantamweight Championship.

Crispim pushed Loveland into the fence at the start of the first, searching for a takedown, but Loveland defended and spun out of the position. Loveland pounced, dropping Crispim with an uppercut then attacking with a variety of strikes after Crispim stood. Loveland backed off a bit and Crispim looked gaunt and exhausted as he backed away. Loveland pressed forward again with strikes then clinched Crispim and pushed him into the fence, utilizing some dirty boxing. Another uppercut dropped Crispim in the center of the cage and he attacked on the ground with elbows then stood again. Crispim dove for a takedown from way outside and Loveland put him out with a lead-leg knee in the final minute, notching the impressive KO victory in the first round.

The end came 4:23 into the first round, giving Loveland the TPF Bantamweight title.
