After punching wall, Rony Jason sent to hospital following UFC Fight Night 32


rony-jason-2.jpgGOIANIA, Brazil – UFC featherweight Rony Jason probably thought his night was bad enough after suffering a devastating first-round knockout loss at the hands of Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 32. But as he headed backstage following the loss, he let his emotions get the best of him and, in the process, made things even worse for himself.

According to backstage rumors, an angry Jason punched a wall and injured his hand so badly he had to be taken to the hospital. The true story was slightly different, according to UFC President Dana White – but not by much.

“He punched a wall and had to be transported to the hospital,” White told MMAjunkie.com “That’s exactly what happened. He punched his arm through the wall and sliced the back of his arm wide open.”

White said Jason would likely need stitches to close up the wound, but added that he wasn’t particularly upset with the post-fight outburst.

“Listen, this stuff happens, man,” White said. “Especially a young guy, a big loss like that, a devastating loss like that, you do stupid stuff sometimes. I don’t think he expected to slice his arm open and get hurt, but it happens.”

Stephens (22-9 MMA, 9-8 UFC) won his second straight bout with the FOX Sports 1-televised head-kick knockout at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil. Jason (13-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) suffered his first defeat in the octagon.
