Sometimes, the octagon just can’t contain the action.
Two fighters were victimized by a cage malfunction Saturday night in Plymouth, Mass. James Collins and Marty Navis — a couple of amateurs making their MMA debuts — went tumbling right through the cage and onto the floor in the middle of their bout.
Joe Lauzon, a UFC veteran, posted a video of the incident on Instagram and said the fight was ruled a no contest. According to Lauzon, one of the fighters needed to go the hospital because of an injury he suffered during the fall.
MMA obviously is a dangerous sport to begin with. When you toss in the possibility of flying through the cage, it’s amazing anyone has the intestinal fortitude to participate in the bedlam.
