"Sure, could use a drink after that" Jacob tilted his head to one side, causing it to crack sharply. The announcer entered the ring and ushered the two out.
"ALRIGHT, ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR NEXT FIGHT?" he asked. The crowd roared "I'll take that as a yes" he smirked.

"This next young man has watched as relatives to him took this very tournament in the past! A native to Vale who makes his money from the pain of crooks in bounty hunting. But that isn't what puts the most fear in his opponents! It's the family that raised him! Here is..Spencer~~ROUUUuuge!!!"
Spencer walks out to much cheering for his name and one person cussing under his breath upon recognizing the bounty hunter and hurrying from his seat to get out of the area. Spencer grins his trademark grin as he steps out and extends his arms up with his strut. As he comes out, he removes his family's jacket designated for huntsmen as he only brought it out to give the crowd the authentic show.

Minos, still donning his trench coat, made his way to the main holding area after polishing his horns in the locker room. Hearing the cheering outside for his imminent challenger he merely smirks as he started making his way to the crowded arena. As Minos walked out, he could immediately hear a loud mixture of both cheers and jeers from the crowd, some even going as far as throwing an empty cup at him. Minos had a reputation of being a brutal brawler in underground tournaments, and knowing the number of fans and enemies here, they probably knew him for that alone since he kept his identity as a white fang member secret. Knowing he needed no introductions, he merely walked casually to the ring, keeping his target in his sights.

This place is just filled with kids, ain't it? Let's see if he'd last long enough to keep me entertained.

As he approached the ring, Minos noticed the other fighters lack of armor. So instead of donning Rho Aius he starts layering them up on their key points, starting to remove them as he reached the ring. Just before getting in, he throws his trench coat off to the corner along with the now folded partitions of his armor as if they weighed nothing at all but still making a loud thud as they hit the ground. Minos laughed as he got into the ring, towering above his opponent, studying him as he got closer. In a low but loud gruff voice he said, "So, you're my opponent?"

That dude's a tank, thought Spencer as his opponent walked out. Immediately he began to size-up the opponent.
Roughly seven foot. Bull faunus, it seems. Heavy on the muscles so fighting head on wouldn't be the best. Go for weak points and grab maneuvers. The police training from my uncle and the military training from my brothers should come in handy against him. It's a good thing I should be able to move faster than him, I'll need that for the style of fighting I'll be using...
The opponent enters the ring just as the announcer goes to say "And for his opponent! Weighing in at-" The announcer throws his hand out as he turns and accidentally slaps the hulking man in the chest with the back of his hand and stops dead. "...."
After waiting a second, he simply backs out and steps from the ring.
Then the opponent addresses Spencer. Quick on the retaliation, Spencer calls out to the other side of the ring. "I grew up on a ranch. Bulls ain' nu'in' special." He then smirks his trademark smirk and reaches out to shake. "Lets put on a good show for 'em, a'ight?"

Minos grinned ear to ear and said, "Ha! This is definitely gonna be entertaining." Especially for me. Let's see how long you'd last, boy. Grabbing Spencers hand he gives a strong but good handshake, his hand easily way bigger than Spencer's, knowing that he shouldn't put up too much of a fuss until the fight began. After shaking hands, Minos goes to his corner of the ring and starts waving out to the crowd, trying to leave a good impression before he starts pummeling into his opponent. Now turning back to Spencer, he clenches his fists tightly, causing the muscles in his arms to bulge out even more before taking his stance. "Ready when you are, boy.'

Spencer goes for a more loose stance with his arms only a little raised; his hands open; the same smirk on his face. That exotic smirk, in a strange way not showing confidence, nor disrespect, but with the appearance of happiness. In the same strange way, it seems a little unnaturally threatening...
That smirk is what makes him as famous in the underground ring of those he has hunted as his last name does in the above world of Vale.
DING! goes the bell and Spencer moves toward more the center of the ring than his opponent. His back straightens more and his arms lift to shoulder height, still without baring fists. He has already calculated what is the most likely first movement and based his own future reaction off of that.

Minos approaches the center, towering over Spencer before lifting his huge fists. Knowing that this kid probably is waiting for the first move he decides to give him that one little pleasure before going serious. Not wanting to use his aura, Minos uses his own brute strength and starts off with powerful haymaker with his right hand while readying a follow up with his left, advancing towards his opponent while using his reach to his advantage. Let's see what you're made of.

My lucky day...
Just the move Spencer was hoping for. A man with that guy's confidence in himself-at least, that seems to be how he carries himself-would go for a strong and ill-controlled punch. It happens to be the move Spencer based his planned route of attack on.
Using the initiative of the hulking man against him, Spencer makes a quick movement to his left and lifts his right arm over the opponent's striking arm. From there, in the same movement, he thrusts his open palm into the man's left cheek, as more of a shove than a hit, gets behind him, pulls his head by his face back into Spencer's right shoulder, thrusts another movement into the back of the opponent's left shoulder with his left palm, and pulls the opponent's attacking arm down and behind his back. A police tactic for quickly bringing down someone trying to assault an officer.
If the movement stuns the guy as much as he would like it to, his strength should not matter against Spencer's smaller amount of force and he should be able to pull the man's left arm behind his back and push up, in an attempt to hurt the man, while pulling him back and attempting to bring him to the surface of the ring for Spencer to get in position for his next plan of attack: beating him down as much as he can because there are no handcuffs in this kind of fight. That is a later predicament for Spencer to face, though.

Typical. I've fought cops before, kid and grabs aren't alien to me, either.

Minos starts figuring out that his opponent would probably try to result to such tactics due to their gap in physical strength and decides to show him how a little grappling of his own. Being someone who wields no weapons, Minos focused more on hand to hand combat and despite his build he could move pretty fast due to his training. Upon getting himself grabbed Minos merely ignored the blow to cheek, seeing how far the kid could go before deciding to counter. As Spencer grabbed his left arm in an attempt to pull it behind his back, Minos squats down and pulls with his own strength to free his left arm before elbowing him in the ribs, locking his attackers arm in his own then slamming himself down to the floor with his attacker on the receiving end of the makeshift suplex.

Using his weight and the strength of his legs to pin Spencer down, he forces his other arm free then proceeds to lifting his now free self up. Upon getting up he cracks his neck a bit then faces Spencer again, grinning like he usually does.

The most Spencer can do is move with the opponent's back and only get tapped on the right side of his ribs due to the lack in coverage area. It still is uncomfortably painful regardless of the lack of contact in the hit. This guy really is strong. Damn. He then finds his arm locked and his back on the ground in front of the hulking man. Immediately, Spencer tilts his back, throws his hand into the ground and spins his leg around to keep the opponent from gaining ground against him. He saw my movements coming last time. I suppose, brute corps tactics may work well with his weight... The moment Spencer slides to his feet with his last movement, he gains a more familiar fighting stance to other people. This time more solid. A boxing stance. "Little pain t' ge' the game goin'. Alrigh'. Coo'-coo'." Once again, he plots his next course of attack as he slowly approaches the guy. His eyes stare into the bull's, watching for that special something in them that indicates an attack is coming.

Taking the aura limiter into account, Minos decides to not use his semblance for the meantime, preferring to go pure hand to hand at the moment. Studying his opponents' stance he sees a pretty familiar build to the others and raises his eyebrow while showing off a proud grin,You want to box, kid? Might as well let him have the first move as well. Minos raises his arms, mirroring Spencers' position while approaching him, now only an arms reach away from Spencer, prepared to make a quick counter of any upcoming attacks.

Need a little bait? Alright. Spencer knows that he cannot win in a full-out fight as he would be beat-out in brute strength. He hopes to counter it with his own 'slightly more than normal-brute strength' and a little bit of weight-shifting movement.
So, Spencer moves forward with a quick jab at the opponent's right side with his left arm while watching for a retaliation. More using the opportunity to get a feel for the distance than to actually do damage.

Minos easily blocks the jab with his right arm even though he didn't feel like he needed to. There wasn't that much of an opening but Minos decided to follow through with a left hook up high as the previous attack landed. It wasn't his usual brick breaking attacks but still strong enough to render a normal person unconscious given a direct hit to the head. I'm expecting a retaliation, boy. Don't make this boring for me.

It was not the expected attack-Spencer was expecting another right punch at his flank-so he is a little slower on the dodge, but he pulls back so the hook misses in front of him and continues with his previous plan.
This time, he uses a Vale Royal Marine Corps tactic. Spencer thrust himself back forward and ducks under the opponents arm. Sometimes muscle weight isn't always good! Spencer's arms wrap around the bull's left leg and pulls it up and toward himself to throw the stance off balance. This movement is designed to be used when the enemy is not fully ready to maximize the amount of thrown off balance and only gets harder to counter, the heavier the person on the business end is.

Having his legged grab from under him, Minos' weight shifts backward causing him to start leaning back. I won't let you have your way, boy. But nice try. As he fell he shifted his weight in such a way that his right leg would now be heading towards Spencer's head, if it connects then it's a hit, if it doesn't he would use it to grapple the boy's head. To save face, Minos also uses the ground to pivot by quickly pulling back his left arm and placing his palm on the ground, thereby giving more accuracy and power to the direction of the upcoming kick.

Spencer does not have enough time to dodge. His arms already raised from the lift, Spencer only needs to put his left forearm in front of his face to take the blow and slow the kick to a more painful shove than kick itself while reaching over his shin and grappling onto Minos's leg over the calf with his right hand. He then quickly puts the let on his left shoulder while holding onto the opponent's inner side of his leg, next to the knee, with his left hand now. Using the awkward balancing position of Minos, he slides his right hand so it pulls on Minos's shin and twists on the leg while pushing on it to the floor. Spencer keeps the ankle by his head until he can't bend over to follow it more, really trying to get Minos on his back. If he can, this will be when he literally jumps on the opportunity to grab the guy by the shoulder and get in a few good punches on the opponent's face-something nearly impossible to do while he stands.

Noticing his opponents efforts to get him on his back, Minos twists his body to do so, somewhat interested in what the kid was going to do next. Placing his arms backwards he throws himself up while curling up his body, forcing the majority of his weight towards his opponent in an attempt to outbalance him, then springs himself back outward for some momentum while forcing his legs to clamp down on his opponents grip. As he flips backward he tries bringing his opponent along with his legs in an attempt to throw him back, using his momentum to his advantage. So, boy. You gonna let go? Or do you want your face planted on the ground?

When the opponent drops back so his hands hold his body up, Spencer simply lets his leg kick down to the ground and practically throws himself to the target. Quickly realizing he is not in a position to reach over, hold his shoulder, and punch him in the face, he instead realizes that a weak spot (above the belt) is practically being thrust up in the air. Cupping one fist over the other, he throws them both down as hard as he can toward Minos's solar plexus in an attempt to take the breath out of him.

Minos grunts as the blow hits but isn't fazed at all, merely surprised that someone would manage to hit him but he then realizes an error in his technique. Upon regaining his footing he turns towards his opponent with his signature grin, mockingly brushing off the earlier hit as if it were nothing. "Are you all grabs, boy? Cuz this is starting to bore me." This time Minos decides to prepare by squatting down a bit while locking himself in place, keeping his center of gravity low and his front protected by both his arms like a Sumo wrestler, this way in an event of any upcoming attack he'd have the advantage of keeping his footing and also prevent falling back from any blows.

He ain' even hurt? That guy ain' normal..
"You asking if I can hones'ly beat someone your size wi' strength alone? Oh come on, man."
Spencer keeps his left hand low and forward while his right hand is lifted and hangs back. His chin low to keep his jaw from getting uppercut-as any fighter knows that that is almost a for sure knock-out button.
He slowly walks backward in an arc around his target. "If I'mma take y'down, I'll need a little time, y'know?"

"Ahh, good. Someone with determination." Minos says, keeping his eye on his opponent. Let's see how you'll play this out then, little human. Flaring out his semblance a bit, Minos notices that it has significantly diminished to the point of not being all that effective so he tunes it down again. I guess this is all about strength and technique eh? Too bad I won't get to show off my charge.

Spencer, thinking he is being waited for again, takes another tactical look at the opponent, compared to him. His stance is solid but I can' help but feel it would put him on the groun' if he were pushed back. Give 'im a startle at mos'. Maybe this is the time to strike an' yet I haven' even done anythin' to coun'er him. "Hm..." Spencer pushes off forward, pushes his feet down in a way to halt his movement just infront of Minos's reach and turn him while Spencer performs a sideways kick at his abdominal area, taking advantage of leg reach and hoping he can connect hard enough to not give his opponent the chance to grab his leg.

Just as the foot aims for his abdomen, Minos quickly raises his arms to halt the attack while staying firm in his position, not budging even an inch after receiving the blow. Grinning as the attack hit Minos gives a smug look then proceeds to trying to lock Spencer's leg between his arms, quickly placing his right arm around the top and his left coming up from the bottom. In case he doesn't get out quickly enough Minos would decide to throw him across the ring after locking his leg in place.

Just what Spencer feared. His kick did absolutely nothing. He should have waited for a real tactical advantage on his opponent, like before. Thinking as fast as he can, Spencer lets himself be grabbed but pulls his knee up and lets his left leg slide forward between Minos's widely-spread legs. The fact that his right leg is constrained causes his slide to slow dramatically but it is all Spencer has. He throws his open palm toward Minos's left ankle, hoping his strength and the bit of momentum will break the brute's stance. It will put Spencer at a bad position, if it works, but it cannot be any worse than whatever his opponent would do to him with his leg in its previous position.

The attack hits and shoves' Minos' ankle a bit causing him to break his stance and nearly fall but not loose his grip on his opponent. To avoid falling, Minos Lowers down to a semi-kneeling position with his left knee on the ground and his right foot firmly on hold, easily regaining his center of gravity and also getting into a good position to pin down Spencer. "Bad move, boy." Minos grunted as he pulled on to the boys leg again with both his arms locked on to it like a clamp.

[Sorry, site ate my notifications on new posts. >_<]

Spencer watches in horror as Minos' groin comes much too close for comfort and his strike does not do much else. He breathes a bittersweet sigh of relief when he is lifted up in front of the huge man with little effort. Yay!~Oh-shoot...
Then it hits him...his leg is free. ...Huh... He lifts his leg up and practically stomps toward the man's face, happy he gets to use his brute-force mindset for the first time in this fight.

Minos receives the full extent of the kick to the face causing him to flinch and nearly drop his target. The foot plants itself in Minos' face but he doesn't loose his stance nor his grip despite the stinging sensation burning across his face, instead he tightens his grip even more but this time moving the other arm in front of the knee, against the joint while the other started pushing against it. I've felt more punishment than this. This is nothing!

"Why you..." With the end of the foot planted on his face Minos laughs but not his usual hearty laugh, this laugh was dark and lost all sense of the earlier playfulness that was heard earlier. It fact it sounded more like a subtle roar of a beast that had just been awoken from it's slumber. "Play time is over, boy." said the man, now sporting a ferocious grin on his face as he starts pushing against the boys' leg again. "What do you think about losing your leg? It won't hurt that much...for me that is" Minos laughs loudly again before lowering his targets' leg towards his own, slamming it down with utmost force as he continues laughing.
