Illegal elbow rocked Chael?

So I just noticed Jones rocked Chael with a questionable elbow. Not arguing that Jones needed to cheat to win, just sayin' it happened. Here's a gif of it. Looks 12-6 to me.

Am I late to the party or is this something new? I haven't seen anyone even acknowledge it yet.

EDIT:

Official Rule
Quote:
Striking downward using the point of the elbow. All elbow strikes are legal except for an elbow that is thrown in a downward trajectory (hand traveling from 12 o’clock to 6 o’clock). Any elbow thrown with an arc is a legal elbow. The point of the elbow may be used as striking instrument as well as the forearm or the tricep area of the arm.”


His hand is traveling from 12-6, there is no arc and only the point of the elbow lands.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

As far as I know a 12-6 elbow means your arm is vertical and your fist is up in the air. I don't think this would be considered a 12-6 elbow (correct me please).

Luckily there's a gif of Jones doing what I think is a 12-6 elbow.

Nothing illegal at all. Hammers gif shows 12-6's perfectly. Not even close to anything he threw vs Chael.

... who cares if it was illegal? (It wasn't)

The outcome of that fight would not have been any different.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I'm not seeing any difference. In both gifs he comes down vertically with the point of the elbow. One is just more blatant than the other.

The motion is what is illegal not hitting someone with the point of your elbow. He is using a forward motion on Chael not 12-6. It has to be straight up and straight down like the second gif if you change the motion slightly in any way it is legal. The rule is pretty absurd.
