I thing the commission is wrong, but i very much doubt they will over turn anything, his managers should just accept this and keep it moving. I understand he was 9-0 and this must feel like a messed up way to get the first lost, but it won't impact his standing that much

They didn't overturn Burns/Johnson because it wasn't one of the conditions for which a fight can be overturned (which are very specific and limited). It had nothing to do with their attitude or refusal to admit a mistake. Same situation with Hammil/Jones. The rules don't allow for a fight to be overturned in this situation.

Doesn't have a chance to win this challenge. Read the rule. There's something about as long as no blow to the head was used. Well, that elbow was directly to the head.

Well then they should definitely change those conditions asap. Btw, if an eye poke TKO isn't enough to overturn a fight, could you please give me an example of something that is?

They change a result only in the case of (NAC Chaper 467):

-collusion or bribery of a ref or judge
-positive drug test
-error on score cards
-As the result of an error in interpreting a provision of this chapter, the referee has rendered an incorrect decision.

As you can see there is nothing in there to allow for a referee's mistake. The "error in interpretation" doesn't refer to a ref missing an eye poke or stopping a fight because he thought an illegal blow was responsible when it wasn't.

Should there be a provision for this? I think so. Something along the lines of "At the discretion of the commission and in the case of gross error by an official blah blah blah".

I said this RIGHT after the decision, that it was hard to talk to Matt because of his disability, They wont bring in one of those hand signal guys during a live fight to figure this stuff out.

He clearly couldnt even move his shoulder during the interview, needed support to hold it in place. I cant possibly see this not being overturned to a NC.

Mazagati should no longer ref mma. What should have happened, was give Hamil the 5 minutes to recover while a doctor inspects his injuries. Deduct a point, or even 2 points for the 2 elbows, and then Hamill would have been saying his shoulder was broken, and they would have called it a no contest. So again, Mazagati needs to stop reffing, this isn't his first f-up, and won't be his last.

Betting question.. a buddy of mine puta pretty large amount on Jones to win the fight. If they actually change it to a NC, does he get his money back? Anyone know?

edit: Yeah now that I think about it, they wouldn't do that lol.

Jones is an animal and his momentum and performances will clear him of this drama by his next fight. I hope the UFC was kind enough to give him his win bonus regardless of the decision.
Total agreement here.

I see your point, but in my opinion. This probably has little to do with Jones and more the people around him. He took the loss well and didn't complain after the fight. I doubt that would have changed a few days later, if anything that usually goes down the opposite way.
