Rony JasonRony Jason‘s UFC Fight Night 32 experience just went from bad to worse to completely embarrassing.

After suffering a violent knockout loss to fellow featherweight Jeremy Stephens this past weekend at UFC Fight Night 32, Jason punched a wall that required a trip to the hospital and more than a dozen stitches for an arm laceration. Now, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) has suspended him 30 days for “anti-sportsmanship conduct,” the commission confirmed in an email sent to

The 30-day suspension won’t go into effect until after the fighter serves a 180-day medical suspension. That means Jason will be out of action until at least June 2014.

UFC Fight Night 32 took place Nov. 9 at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil. The main card, which kicked off with Stephens (22-9 MMA, 9-8 UFC) vs. Jason (13-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC), aired on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on

Stephens wrecked Jason, a champion of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” who had won three straight UFC fights, in just 40 seconds with a head kick and violent follow-up punch. (Watch the Jeremy Stephens vs. Rony Jason fight video.)

UFC President Dana White said he’s willing to give Jason a pass despite his backstage antics.

“Listen, this stuff happens, man,” White said after the event. “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.”
