UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones is not looking for revenge.
Since debuting in the UFC, Jones has done anything but slow down the momentum that he’s been riding since a signature win over one of the original “Ultimate Fighter Season One” cast member Stephan Bonnar.
Jones was undefeated until a bout opposite fellow wrestler Matt Hamill came to pass, ending in controversial fashion. Jon used illegal 12-to-6 elbow strikes, resulting in a disqualification and the first loss of his young professional career.
You’d think Jones would want to right a wrong, get a piece of his once undefeated career back, but he’s perfectly content with what has passed. It’s all just another experience for the young 22-year-old.
“I definitely wouldn’t want to have a rematch with Matt Hamill,” said the newly minted Greg Jackson fighter.
“I actually hung out with him a few weeks ago — well, several weeks ago. We were both down in Miami, taking care of some things for Dana (White). He’s just a great guy. He has a great personality, great heart.
“(The fight) was a great learning experience for me. It was the first fight that I was really relaxed, I was thinking the whole time, and it was the first time I was actually having fun instead of being nervous out there. It was just a great experience. Win or lose, it was a wonderful thing and I wouldn’t change what happened for the world.”
