Scott Jorgensen’s appeal of a loss to Jussier Formiga from UFC Fight Night 38 has been denied by the Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA, according to his management team.
MMA Inc. posted on Twitter that the decision was rendered, saying, “Won’t supplant it’s judgement for a non-call in the cage.” Both the management team and Jorgensen are hoping for a rematch.
Formiga (16-3) scored a rear-naked choke in the first round after what looked like an inadvertent head butt landed to Jorgensen (14-9).
