Back in Dec. 2009, Jones took on Matt Hamill in the co-main event of TUF 10 Finale. Jones had Hamill in a bad way with ground-and-pound and referee Steve Mazzagatti finally called a halt to the bout in the opening frame. Instead of awarding Jones the TKO victory, Hamill won the fight via disqualification due to illegal 12-6 elbows.
Rogan Wants Jones Only Defeat To Be Overturned
“I’m in agreement with this 100%. The 12-6 elbow rule is one of the dumbest rules in combat sports. At the very least that fight should be a no contest. He was completely dominant.”
Jones’ record stands at 24-1, 1 NC. He’s set to defend his UFC light heavyweight championship against Thiago Santos in the main event of UFC 239 on July 6. The bout will take place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
