Jorgensen’s management team, MMA Inc., announced on Friday via Twitter that the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) has reviewed the fight and concluded that Jussier Formiga’s non-intentional headbutt didn’t play a big enough factor in the finish, so they denied Jorgensen’s appeal.
CABMMA director Cristiano Sampaio confirmed the information to MMAFighting.com.
Formiga scored a first-round submission victory over Jorgensen at UFC Fight Night 38 in Natal, Brazil, on March 23, with a rear-naked choke.
"You can't get away with it twice," Jorgensen tweeted on Friday. "Fight me." His management team also called for a rematch via Twitter.
Jorgensen holds a 3-4 record under the UFC banner, and Formiga improved to 2-2 with the win in his hometown.
