The UFC champion Jon Jones had a checkered history in the promotion from the USADA bans to claiming ‘champ-champ’ with his triumph over Ciryl Gane at UFC 285. In his long illustrious career and splendid resume, ‘Bones’ amassed multiple records and racked up impressive wins over veterans. However, his sole controversial loss against Matt Hamill in December 2009 still makes rounds on the internet and sparks interest in the squares. Further, UFC president Dana White has asserted his rally of support behind the heavyweight champion to overturn the loss for years now. Despite these claims, a recent report suggests otherwise. The revelation by the report piqued the fans’ concern as they detected an inconsistency between the UFC lynchpin’s words and the reality.

Notably, the Albuquerque resident faced Matt Hamill on the Ultimate Fighter Season 10 Finale fight card. While he dominated his opponent and took the fight to the ground, he threw the 12-6 elbows that cost him the fight. Also, the color commentator Joe Rogan, who has questioned the legitimacy of 12-6 elbows, informed the viewers that the American fighter’s 12-6 elbows were illegal.

The referee Steve Mazzagatti initially paused the fight and deducted a point from the 35-year-old. However, later on, he waved off the fight as Hamill’s eye sockets and shoulder gave him trouble.
