No luck for Jon Jones with the NSAC.
Jones filed a formal appeal with the NSAC over his disqualification from the Matt Hamill fight at the TUF 10 Finale. Jones’ argument was Hamill couldn’t continue because he injured his shoulder, not because of the illegal elbow strikes. Considering that news originated from Hamill’s camp, it seemed like he actually had a pretty good case.
It didn’t matter though. According to this Heavy.com report, they wouldn’t even issue an official ruling on the appeal.
Jon Jones’ appeal to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to overturn referee Steve Mazagatti’s decision in his bout against Matt Hamill earlier this month has been denied. The NSAC stated that they don’t overturn decisions and decided against ruling on the appeal.
Heavy.com confirmed the news with Jason Genet, the manager of Jones, Shane Carwin and other fighters.
I know, shocking right?
