Rony Jason punches wall, hurts hand after first loss in the UFC

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Rony Jason suffered a serious injury on Saturday night, but it had nothing to do with his first loss in the Octagon.

Frustrated after a first-round knockout loss to Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 32 in Goiania, Brazil, the TUF: Brazil featherweight winner punched the wall of his locker room as soon as he left the cage, and had to be taken to the hospital.

"This stuff happens," Dana White said at the post-fight press conference. "You do stupid stuff sometimes."

There's no further information yet on Jason's condition.

Jason (13-4) was undefeated in the UFC with wins over Mike Wilkinson, Sam Sicilia and Godofredo Pepey, and had his eight-fight win streak stopped in just 40 seconds against Stephens (22-9), who moved to 2-0 as a featherweight with the win in Brazil.
