Tribune/Nathan Orme - Melvin Washington shrugs and laughs as he answers questions about his 6-second win over Will Ruppert on Friday at Fight Factory at the Knit. This was the first fight and first win for Washington, from 9 Diamonds Kickboxing and MMA in California. He defeated Ruppert by putting him down with a right cross followed by a barrage of shots that prompted the official to call the fight.

RENO - Rick Collup took his cage fighting extravaganza to The Knitting Factory on Friday for the first Fight Factory event.

The venue was not as grandiose as the usual home of Ultimate Reno Combat, the event Collup puts on about every six weeks in the Grand Theatre at the Grand Sierra Resort, but the action inside the cage was still intense. Spectators stood on the floor below the cage on the raised stage and saw six bouts, only one of which made it to the second round.

Fights went so quickly that the Sparks Tribune reporting team of Nathan Orme and Gregg Krupp, who is training to one day fight in the cage, missed the first battle and the second ended so quickly we only got photos of the end. So, enjoy what we got.
