This marked the first loss in Jones’ UFC career. President Dana White criticized the decision of the referee to count it as a loss on Jones’ record and claimed that it should have been marked as no contest.

Jones then faced Ryan Bader on February 5, 2011, at UFC 126. Jones won the fight via a guillotine choke submission in the 2nd round as he gave Bader his first professional loss.
