Brazilian commission denies Jorgensen’s appeal

Friday, April 04, 2014

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) is not going to budge on Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight Scott Jorgensen's loss to Jussier da Silva, after “Young Guns” cried foul over the outcome of their scrap at UFC Fight Night 38 last month in Brazil.

No ifs, ands, or (head) butts.

Jorgensen was miffed after “Formiga” choked him out, insisting it was a collision of crowns and not a Brazilian bumrush that sent him crashing to the canvas. Naturally, his opponent feigned ignorance, suggesting it was the chest that absorbed the blow.
