Dana White Sickened By ‘L’ On Jon Jones’ Record

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones – as far as many people are concerned – is unbeaten in his MMA career.

However, if you look up his official record, you will see a mark in the loss column. That’s because Jones was disqualified for illegal elbows in a bout with Matt Hamill a few years back.

Jones was in control of the action, taking Hamill down before landing what the referee ruled to be “12-to-6″ elbow strikes. Steve Mazzagatti was in control, and disqualified Jones.

“He’s a young kid and if he goes to 30 years old, he could be 35-0 and it makes me sick that he has that ‘one’ on his record,” said White, during a Q&A session that FightLine.com attended. “Jon Jones is undefeated. That ‘one’ that is on his record is because of a moronic referee who had no idea what he was doing.”

Jones will be attempting to make history this weekend when he faces Chael Sonnen, as a victory would tie Tito Ortiz for most successful defenses of the 205-pound belt.
