There is only one reasonable thought to have after watching this video: "What on earth just happened?!"

According to the Daily Mail, Brazil's Claudinei Angelo was controlling his MMA fight against fellow countryman Evilasio Silva when he requested that the bout be stopped so he could replace his mouth piece—something that had caused the fight to be stopped multiple times already.

When the referee refused the timeout, Angelo began pacing around the mat looking for an exit. Upon realizing that the cage door was locked, he jumped up and over the steel apparatus to a chorus of boos from the crowd.
