Hotshot prospect Jon Jones looked to be on his way to a dominant win over Matt Hamill when the fight was stopped. It appeared Mazzagatti stopped the fight because Hamill had a nasty cut on the bridge of his nose and was unable to continue with a separated shoulder. When ring announcer Bruce Buffer announced Jones has been disqualified because of illegal elbows. The crowd, Hamill and Jones were all shocked.

Hamill appeared to have suffered a broken nose and couldn't continue. A point was taken away and then when Hamill was unable to continue, Jones was DQ'd.
