Fighter calls Time Out, Jumps over Cage and goes home

Posted: October 8, 2013 in Commentary/Opinion

timeoutI don’t know if you saw this over the weekend but there was a fight in Brazil with a finish I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. Claudinei Angelo kinda tapped—but not with his hand, or even verbally. Instead this dude tapped via jumping over the cage and heading out of Dodge.

Here’s how I understand the occurrences to take place. Angelo dropped his mouthpiece and asked for it back. So the ref stopped the fight to do so. Then after taking a couple shots, I guess he spit the mouthpiece out. This time the ref wasn’t so generous.

That’s when Angelo CALLED TIMEOUT. And I’m not speaking figuratively here. As you can see in the video, he literally called a timeout like Coach K in the Final Four. His opponent and the ref were so confused; no one knew what to do. Finally the ref got the dude’s mouthpiece, but Angelo didn’t take it.

He circled the cage aimlessly like he couldn’t find the door and then he made his escape—by jumping over the cage and walking to the back. The video is only 45 seconds. Take a look. Bizarre.

    This is a disgrace to people who consider themselves warriors, he’s lucky i wasn’t there to beat his ass back in the cage and tell him to finish the fight. He should be banned from the sport indefinately. Take some pride in yourself and learn to accept defeat with honor. Fucking unbelievable
