the loss really doesnt matter because its not like it will set him back in the rankings at all hes still gonna get good fights because everyone seen he dominated.that's why he could give a crap about the loss i think lol.
plus he still got paid plenty and he knows he won inside

Hammill is awesome for telling it like it is, even when it's in someone else's favor. Don't know what he meant by 'die before he will tap'. Is that refusing to tap from strikes, which it would've been in this fight? Or is he saying he'd not tap for anything? That would be a bad option depending on the opponent.

The class that Matt Hamill and Jon Jones have displayed is beautiful and amazing. It's such a contrast and so refreshing compared to the constant crybaby brats we are subject to in big money sports like MLB, the NBA and the NFL.

These guys deserve to make a lot more dough considering how skilled, entertaining and risky their job is, but I hope they maintain some semblance of the humility they've displayed so far.

And yeah, Azzagatti does suck.

I respectfully disagree with them fighting again. I think Jones is a better fighter and the results would be the same. I would hate to see Matt get beat up again. Jones is ready to fight some of the higher echelon fighters. I think he needs a fight with Kieth Jardine or Forrest Griffin. I would love to see him humiliate Tito Ortiz.

Agreed. Even though their fight had controversy, it was pretty damn decisive about who was the better fighter. I don't see how Matt could make the fight anymore competitive.

Nice to see a bit of class though from both guys.

I agree they should be payed alot more than they make. Look at how much Tito makes, not that Tito hasnt payed his dues and dosn't deserve the money but the fact that he isnt that good or entertaining anymore. I think Jones and Hamill both deserve more because of like you said they have class and they are good for the sport. Most of all they are both very entertaining skilled fighters to watch, they both come prepared and in shape to fight. No excuses if they lose. Jones is going to be a special fighter. I honestly belive he will be a champion one day

Um, no. Hamill's inability to continue was unrelated to the foul, therefore, Jones should have been warned/lost a point, not DQd for it. Add to that the fact this miscall gives Hamill an unearned win and Jones his first (and unearned) loss, there's no justification to not changing the decision.
