He did something unthinkable and thought so far outside the box that he came up with a gameplan of how to abuse the system to win against invincible rival Jon Jones. He had already had his shoulder severely injured but he trudged on, he knew if he hung on he could get that W by DQ. With his soft head laying on the mat, he knew he had nowhere to go, he knew that was exactly where he wanted to be.
Like Yushin Okami before him leaning into an illegal upkick of the most ultimate of ultimate fighters (Anderson Ultimate Silva), Matt Hamill saw a gameplan and executed it to the best.
The best offense is absolutely no defense.
