Brazilian MMA fighter gives up, jumps fence and runs out of the cage

Evilasio Silva (8-12) defeated Claudinei Angelo (4-5) at JF Fight Evolution in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, on Oct. 5, but not the way he expected.

Angelo was controlling the action when Angelo’s mouthpiece fell on the mat. Flavio Almendra, stopped the bout and asked Angelo to get back his mouthpiece. It happened again, and Almendra stopped the bout once again.

When Angelo clearly spat his mouthpiece to recover from the punches, the referee refused to stop the fight. Angelo went on and asked for a "time out". Silva and Almendra didn’t understood what he was asking for, but Angelo decided to quit. The door was locked, so his only way out was jumping off the fence and leaving the arena.
