Rony Jason suspended for unsportsmanlike conduct following UFN 32

Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting

Rony Jason’s week just keeps getting worse.

"Devastated" after a 40-second knockout loss to Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 32 in Goiania, Brazil, on Nov. 9, the first TUF: Brazil winner smashed a door with his elbow in the locker room and needed 15 stitches.

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission announced that Jason received a 180-day medical suspension following the bout Monday, but CABMMA’s CEO Giovanni Biscardi announced that the featherweight will receive an extra punishment Tuesday.

Due to his unsportsmanlike conduct in the locker room area after his fight, CABMMA announced "the suspension of the athlete Rony ‘Jason’ Mariano for a period of 30 days, counted as from the end of the period of his medical suspension," said the release sent to MMAFighting.com.

With the pair of suspensions, Jason won’t be able to compete until June 9, 2014.

In the post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White didn’t seem so upset with Jason’s behavior.

"This stuff happens," White said. "Especially young guys. 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."
