UFC Fight Night 32: Rony Jason suspended for unsportsmanlike conduct following door assault in Brazil

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

And the hits just keep onnnnnn coming.

When it rains for Rony Mariano Bezerra, it friggin' pours.

Shortly after he was KTFO by featherweight opponent Jeremy Stephens (watch it), "Jason" took his frustration out on a door backstage, but suffered a serious cut in the process. One that not only resulted in 15 stitches, but also earned him a six-month medical suspension.

That's not all.

Bezerra was also tagged for "unsportsmanlike conduct" following his loss at UFC Fight Night 32 last Saturday night (Nov. 9, 2013) on FOX Sports 1 (details), likely from going into berserker mode in the locker room. MMA Fighting has it straight from the commission:

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."

Knocked out, sliced open, then suspended.

Hat trick!

I'm not sure what sports Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) CEO Giobanni Biscardi is used to watching, but that sounds exactly like the conduct of every sportsman who comes up short in a big spot. Ever see Paul O'Neil strike out? Half his salary was used to replace those Gatorade coolers.

The combined suspensions (180, 30) will keep Bezerra out of action until next June.
