Jake Rosholt's disqualification loss against John Ott at Titan Fighting Championships 18 was overturned to No Contest by the Kansas Athletic Commission.

The Kansas Athletic Commission overturned Jake Rosholt’s disqualification loss to John Ott to a No Contest, following the short review of the fight that took place last May 27 at Titan Fighting Championships 18. However, KAC Boxing Commissioner – Troye Blackmon – declined to elaborate the basis of his decision. Jake Rosholt’s manager, on the other hand, said that it is a just outcome — considering the circumstances of the fight.

It should be recalled that Jake Rosholt was disqualified from his fight against John Ott at Titan Fighting Championship 18, after he allegedly threw an illegal knee in the third round. But in a subsequent interview, the fighter pointed out that the knee was intentional. Jake Rosholt also argued that the decision should be changed to Technical Decision — just like what happened to the Jamie Varner vs Donald Cerrone match at WEC 38.

Meanwhile, John Ott and his management could not be reached for comment.
