Add to that that Jackson's coaxing was clearly not motivated by Machida's wellfare at all, but was designed to give the fans a distorted view of Jones. It was a cynical, calculated act which in my opinion is worse than dropping him in the first place.
There's an argument that choking him out and dropping him to the mat looks, well, badass. But if you're going to do that, own it. And if you come down from the completely understandable andrenaline dump that doubtless comes from destroying a guy who was hyped as untouchable a few years back and realize, "Shit, there but for the grace of god go I, I might go see if he's ok," power to you. But don't be told by your coach to do it for the sole purpose of perception management and expect people not to call "bullshit" when the audio is picked up and broadcast over every reputable MMA outlet in the world.
At least when Jorgenson did it, he didn't feel like he had to feign concern afterwards.
