A hinge had been damaged in a previous fight, and was improperly fixed. Bout was ruled a No Contest as neither fighter coudl continue. (1:30 mark)

Our guys stopped fighting for this promotion about 2 years ago. Last time I had a guy fight for him, my guys opponent had pulled out a week before and he never told us. He was still telling us up to a few minutes before the match the guy was on his way. Friends and family of my fighter had already drove an hour and bought tickets. He ended up fighting an alternate which I found out later weighed in at 215lb. My guy was 185lb.

Its a real shame, the work that goes into preparing and the fucking promotion cheaps out on the cage.

 Interesting.  In Nevada, aren't the rules that you can't leave the cage?  Does this go down as a NC or does the guy in black shorts lose because he leaves the cage first?

I've seen this happen twice at local shows. Minus the knockouts. The dudes just walked back into the cage and kept fighting.

Bwahhhhhahahaha that may be the best thing i've ever seen.On a more serious note in no way should that be considered a grounded opponent, should at least have to have at least a knee on the ground or better yet be flat on your back/stomach for that rule to kick in imo
