Rony Jason Says His Post-Fight Night 32 Outburst Was a Lapse in Judgment
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.21.2014



Rony Jason recently spoke about his outburst backstage following his loss to Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 32. The incident saw him punch through a wall, after which he was suspended by the Brazillian fighting commission for 30 days for anti-sportsmanship conduct. Check out the highlights:

On his backstage blow-up following his loss to Stephens: "It was my first time to suffer a loss like that. I felt emasculated. Plus Brazilian fans easily count you out, unlike fans in America who are more loyal. I felt great before that fight, and I expected it to launch me into the top 15 or even top 10."

On learning from the experience: "I dreamed I would retire undefeated from the UFC, but that didn't happen. And my unsportsmanlike conduct, elbowing through that door backstage, it was a lapse of judgement on my part. I was upset because I come from a small town, Quixada, state of Ceara. When I fight, the entire town stops to watch me. And I knew that I made them all very sad. Those feelings overwhelmed me, and I think that's why I did what I did. It was an isolated act, and it won't happen again."

On fans giving him a hard time over it: "People who follow me understand that's how Rony is. That's the Rony that doesn't enjoy losing, who was unhappy for not having done a good job. That's how I am. I usually train with some of the best talent in the world. I give my all. I struggle to make weight. I struggle to find endorsements. I have two children. I have my own expenses. I help my family out. So that's the Rony who doesn't want to lose. I want to be world champion. I will be world champion. When I lost, I knew I slipped several steps back. And Brazilian fans are cruel when you are down. I knew I'd hear about it. I still hear about it."

On improving from the fight: "I think I learned many good things from my loss. I was becoming very passive. People who have followed my career for some time know how aggressive I can be. That's why most of my victories came in the first round. It's hard to change things when you're winning. I was undefeated for almost five years, so I was used to winning. Chatting with someone, eating popcorn or watching a movie that's the same (way I was) fighting Jeremy Stephens. I was very relaxed, too relaxed. That's a sin I will no longer commit...Now, you can expect me to always show up with a fire within me. You won't see me trying to patiently apply my technique. I'm going in to finish my opponents before the final bell."
