Lauren Foley defeats Liz Crowley

On Saturday January, 12 2013 at Mad Men Promotions: "Night of Champions" at The Michigan Theater in Jackson, Michigan.

#17 ranked 125-pound fighter Lauren Foley (4-0-0) defeated Liz Crowly (2-1-0) by TKO due to punches in the fourth round of their 125-pound amateur Championship match.

The defending champion Lauren is a 5'5 twenty-two year old fighter from Wyandotte, Michigan where she trains at Eastern Michigan University with their MMA club team where she is coached by Greg Calvert.

Her last win came in November of 2011 when she defeated Sheila Amerson in the first defense of her Mad Men 125-pound womens amateur Championship that she won when she defeated Sheena Brandenburg in September of 2011.

I asked Lauren what got her into MMA and this was her answer, "I played football an did wrestling in high school and really missed contact sports since I have only been doing rowing for the last seven years and so I decided to just do both now.
