Default Dana white: Jon jones should be undefeated



Jon Jones is a fast rising star in the Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight division, but UFC president Dana White isn’t happy that the 22-year-old phenom has a blemish on his record.

On Dec. 5, Jones dominated Matt Hamill at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, only to find himself on the wrong side of a disqualification loss due to the use of illegal elbows. White, however, questions the decision of referee Steve Mazzagatti to stop the fight, handing Jones the DQ loss, the only blemish on his record.

“It shouldn’t have happened. It shouldn’t have happened that way. He shouldn’t have a loss, so it’s unfortunate,” White told a group of media following the promotion’s first event on the Versus network.

“It was a downward (elbow). You take a point. You take a point or whatever. (Hamill) couldn’t continue because his shoulder was messed up. It had nothing to do with the elbow,” asserted the UFC president.

“Why the fight was stopped had nothing to do with the elbow. If he had been gashed open and the fight couldn’t continue, or broke his nose and couldn’t continue - anything to do with the face or anything to do with an illegal strike then I’d get it, but it didn’t. He couldn’t continue because of his shoulder. That should have never had been the call.”

Despite the official loss on Jones’ resume, White has no intentions of putting together a rematch between Jones and Hamill.

“I don’t think anybody thinks, oh God, I wonder what would happen in that second fight,” said White.
