Everyone can get angry sometimes, and sometimes when we’re angry, we do stupid things that exacerbate already awful situations.
Before stepping into the octagon at UFC Fight Night 32, Rony Jason was 3-0 in the UFC. It didn’t take long though for him to earn his first UFC loss. As he was throwing an overhand right, he leaned a little too far into it and got caught by a vicious head kick. It was a simple mistake to make, and it cost him the fight. His victorious opponent was Jeremy Stephens, who advanced his UFC record to 9-8 after his highlight reel KO win.
After he went backstage, the twenty-nine year old Brazilian let his anger get the best of him. Jason injured his arm by punching a giant hole in a wall. The hole was so deep that he cut the back of his arm open and had to be taken to a hospital.
In an interview with MMAJunkie.com, UFC President Dana White explained the situation.
“He punched a wall and had to be transported to the hospital,” White said. “That’s exactly what happened. He punched his arm through the wall and sliced the back of his arm wide open.”
Never one to shy away from the media, White has been known to get upset at fighters when they have outbursts and throw tantrums, but for Jason, he didn’t seem angry at all. Surprisingly, he actually sympathized with him.
“Listen, this stuff happens, man,” White told MMAJunkie.com “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.”
