No, it’s not the Twilight Zone, it was actually Hardrock MMA 43 Saturday night in Shepherdsville, Ky., when pro lightweights Brandon Bishop and Braedon Ward were off to a competitive start in their co-main event bout. However, at about the minute-and-a-half mark, Ward shot in on Bishop and drove him into the cage, they busted right through the cage door, fell down the stairs and were both knocked out cold.
Apparently a hinge on the door had been damaged during an earlier fight. They thought they had fixed it but when the fighters hit the door it knocked the pin out. Because the fighters could not continue, the bout was ruled a no-contest.
