Lightweight fighters Josiah Harrell and Mike Roberts gave fans a little more than they bargained for at an LFA event on Friday night.
Emanating from the Owensboro Sportscenter in Owensboro, Kentucky, LFA 160 aired live on UFC Fight Pass and featured two entertaining title tilts to close out the event. But the real talk of the night came earlier in the evening when 155-pound standout Josiah Harrell shot in for a takedown less than a minute into the third round and drove his opponent, Mike Roberts, through the cage door and into the stands.

Fortunately, both men appeared to come out of the scary-looking incident uninjured and were able to continue the contest. In the end, Harrell came out on top, scoring a TKO via ground-and-pound roughly 90 seconds following their tumble through the fence.
In the co-main event of the evening, Azamat Bekoev bested Dylan Budka via a five-round split decision for the LFA interim middleweight championship. Bekoev moved to 16-3 overall and remained undefeated under the Legacy Fighting Alliance banner. In the main event, John Sweeney earned himself a unanimous decision over Allan Begosso to capture the bantamweight championship. Sweeney improved himself to 13-3 with three-straight wins with LFA.
In 11 total bouts, LFA 160 featured eight highlight-reel-worthy finishes. You can catch a replay of the full event on demand through UFC Fight Pass.
