I dont get that
It's a no contest if a fighter can't continue based on something out of the fighters hands. Such as in boxing when two fighters heads collide and one can't continue.

These were several intentional and illegal elbows. Hence it's a disqualification and not a no contest.

Jones would have won if he simply stuck with legal strikes. And the argument could be made that the fight should have been stopped before the strikes. But since it wasn't stopped earlier it was a fair decision to give it a DQ.
