And insists their first bout should be changed to a "no contest."

"I hit him with absolutely everything I threw. He could not hit me. I defended every takedown he tried on me. He jumps in, clips me with a headbutt, I drop and wake up in a rear-named choke. That's the fight. It's bullshit. I'm pissed. I don't think it was intentional but accidental or not, it dropped me. He couldn't hit me before that. He couldn't hit me with his hands. I'd love to see it overturned to a no contest and I want a rematch."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight Scott Jorgensen came out "Young Guns" blazing after getting submitted by Jussier da Silva on the FOX Sports 1 "Prelims" portion of last night's (March 23, 2014) UFC Fight Night 38 event, which took place inside Ginasio Nelio Dias in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil (results here). Jorgensen collided heads with "Formiga" and went down in a heap, only to see the Brazilian capitalize on the moment and lock in a fight-ending submission, something that would not have otherwise happened, he argues, since his opponent was unable to land any punches. Any fight fans out there feel a "no contest" is warranted due to the nature of the finish?
