Brazilian MMA Fighter Hops Over Fence and Leaves Arena, Mid-Fight (Video)
What do you do when you realize you hate your job? Well, for most of us, we’d keep doing it while we start to look at other options. That may take a few weeks, or maybe even a few years. But we don’t just think to ourselves one day, “I think I should be doing something else,” then stand up from our desks and walk out the front door.
Of course, most of us don’t get punched, kicked, elbowed and kneed in the face, ribs, stomach and groin for a living. If you are an MMA fighter and you realize mid-fight that your heart really isn’t in it anymore, there really is only one safe alternative: GTFO. And fast, before you get killed.
That’s what Brazilian MMA fighter Claudinei Angelo did recently. During a JF Fight Evolution bout against Evilasio Silva in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, this past Saturday, Angelo suddenly decided he’d had enough. And when the referee refused to stop the fight—the MMA equivalent of an employer insisting you give two weeks notice—Angelo was like, “fine, I’m outta here.”
Then he hopped over the fence and walked out.
Take a look:
It’s not the most amazing ending to an MMA fight we’ve seen this year, but it’s close.
