The injury bug started to hit the UFC Fight Night 29 card in Barueri, Sao Paulo, as TUF Brazil winner Rony "Jason" Mariano was forced out of the card with an injury.
Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) announced on Sunday that the featherweight was pulled out of the card with a lumbar hernia, and Dr. Marcio Tannure declared he wasn’t cleared to compete on Oct. 9 in Barueri, Sao Paulo.
"Jason" was expected to meet Jeremy Stephens, but the promotion hasn’t announced yet if they will replace the Brazilian, or move Stephens to other card.
