For those who are unaware, Jones’ only defeat was at the hands of Matt Hamil. While rising star Jon Jones was undoubtedly receiving a lot of attention in 2009, the elite upper tier of the competition, however, was still out of his reach. Stefan Bonner, a member of the UFC Hall of Fame, was the only prominent opponent in his career up to that point. However, the hardest test was still to come, to make him the greatest in the business.

The match was scheduled to be the co-main event of the 2009 Ultimate Fighter Final and pitted him against Matt Hamil, who was in hot form at the time. In fact, it was truly another challenge for Jones to establish himself professionally and go even farther inside the company. It was clear that Jones would not have a walkover fight against Hamil, given his impressive resume and wrestling background. However, ‘Bones’ was my favorite coming into the bout.

Nevertheless, he didn’t lose as a result of being disqualified, being made to submit, or a judge’s decision. Jones has only ever lost one game due to being disqualified for using illegal elbow movement. The match’s official referee was Steve Mazzagatti. And the ref. carried on the fight even though Hamill had already been crushed.

Later, Jones made an effort to force him to comply by using his elbows, where he continued to use 12-6 elbow strikes in spite of the referee’s warnings, which ultimately resulted in his disqualification. So this was Jones’ only defeat. It will be interesting to see what he has to offer now that he has made his long-awaited comeback.
