"He was defending the choke just fine and was about out when the ref told him he couldn't push off the cage to bridge to escape. Jared and everyone was confused and i think it led to him not being able to focus on his defense. Its really unfortunate. The UFC matchmakers and Dana White all saw that and also know how exciting of fighter Jared can be. That's why he's going to be back." -Alberto Crane, Jared's BJJ coach
Dana mentioned it in the post fight press conference, too.
