Jon Jones Loses Appeal of Loss To Matt Hamill

From Heavy.com:

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.

The chances of this ever getting overturned were very, very slim. This was the first time the new replay rule was used in action and for the commission to overturn a decision made by the ref the first time the rule was used would send a very mixed message.

Jones clearly isn’t being punished and is continuing to be moved up by his management as his next fight will be against Brandon Vera.
