Strikeforce's 'Young Guns 3' cut short due to cage malfunction

Publish date:

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Strikeforce held its third Young Guns show on Saturday night at the San Jose Civic Auditorium, which was unfortunately cut short due to a broken cage.

After eight fights had been held, a 10-minute intermission ensued as the cage door had come undone and wasn't closing properly. With five bouts remaining on the card, the announcement came a little after the 10-minute intermission had ended that the cage couldn't be repaired and the rest of the card was to be scrapped because under CSAC rules a properly working cage was needed to continue.

The fans jeered the announcement, but were informed that the next Young Guns show would be streamed on the Strikeforce website and they would be given a code to view it at no cost. The remaining fighters that were unable to compete would be paid twenty percent of their fight purse.
