The Nevada State Athletic Commission utilized instant replay to determine the outcome of a mixed martial arts contest for the first time in its history on the TUF 10 Finale card, and White's favorite whipping-boy official, Steve Mazzagatti, was responsible for utilizing the technology.
The issue came during the evening's co-main event at The Pearl at the Palms Casino resort in Las Vegas between light heavyweights Jon Jones and Matt Hamill.

I'm surprised Rogan and Goldberg thought Jones was going to be awarded the victory. As soon as Maz waved the fight off, I knew it was going to be declared a DQ in favor of Hamill.

I'm sold on Jones now, though. I was reluctant going in to this fight to believe the hype. But now I do. Good God, that kid is going to be good.

My only problem with the dq is mazz asked hamill if he could contintue. He said no. The started to grab his shoulder. He could not continue because of the shoulder not the cuts. That is what hamill even said in his post fight. maybe mazz should have talked to him before the dq.

I agree with the stoppage *but*...Hamill is deaf. Did Mazzagatti expect him to answer when he asked "Are you done?"

'12-6' (vertical) elbow strikes are illegal I believe.

Yes, but he doesnt hit with the elbow on the illegal strikes. He hit him with his forearm about 3 inches down from his elbow.

The rule is stupid, McSweeney threw like 10 of the exact same elbows from the bottom, seen it hundreds of times.

They call them 12-6 elbows, but actually the way the rule is enforced is any elbow that is thrown that comes from the ceiling to the floor is illegal.

Since McSweeney is on his back his elbows are not being thrown with a ceiling to the floor motion therefore they are not illegal 12-6 elbows.

That was one of the best calls made by a ufc ref but at the rate the fight was going a no contest would have made more sense.
