NSAC Clarifies Jones DQ; Update On Hamill Injury

Following a confusing and controversial ending to the fight between Jon "Bones" Jones (9-1) and Matt "The Hammer" Hamill (8-2), Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer clarified the circumstances leading to Hamill's disqualification victory. The fight ended in a disqualification after Jones followed a barrage of strikes with a downward elbow to Hamill's face, opening a cut on the bridge of the nose and forcing the referee to step in. While initially referee Steve Mazzagatti intended to stop the fight to take a point away from Jones for the illegal strike, Hamill was unable to continue.
