Former WEC bantamweight title challenger Scott Jorgensen has had a rough go of it in recent fights in the UFC. He's 1-5 in his last 6, and 0-2 at flyweight. His last bout saw him lose by rear-naked choke to Jussier Formiga on March 23rd, but it wasn't without controversy. Replays showed that Jorgensen was felled by a non-intentional headbutt moments before Formiga took his back and sunk in the choke, and Jorgensen's management team (MMA Inc.) appealed the result, demanding it be turned into a "No Contest". MMA Inc. released a statement via Twitter confirming that the appeal has been denied and the result stands:
Jorgensen also took to Twitter to ask for a rematch against the Brazilian, but ultimately it comes down to what the UFC wants to do. He's officially on the first three-fight losing streak of his career, and has been finished three times during his 1-5 skid. You have to consider though that his defeats have come against brutal opposition - Faber, Makovsky, Barao, Wineland, Formiga - so perhaps the UFC will spare him from the cut line and either give him his requested rematch or a more "winnable" fight against someone not in the top 10.
