Besides fighting his heart out in the Octagon, Joe Lauzon’s got dudes he coaches and trains, and sometimes those wards will step into the cage themselves.

Sadly, at a local event in Massachusetts last night, they stepped into the cage and then fell out.

Lauzon posted the below clip to his Instagram.

FYI, Massachusetts legalized MMA years ago, and while their athletic commission sort of sucked when they started out, they supposedly got a handle on things in the years subsequent. But as the clip below shows, someone didn’t check to make sure that cage door was locked – and responsibility for that begins and ends with either commission inspector or the referee.

Thankfully, no one broke their neck.
