Midnight Mania! UFC fighter Rony Jason punches downed woman at party in Brazil

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Add Rony Jason to the long list of current and former UFC fighters who have a record of violence against women. As reported by, he can be seen in the above video punching a grounded woman and shouting down at her after others pull him off her.

Jason has an explosive temper; after his loss to Jeremy Stephens, he put his fist through a wall and had to get stitches at the hospital. Assaulting a grounded woman is obviously not justifiable under any circumstances, and being a professional fighter only makes it worse.

Rony Jason has gone 0-3 in his latest UFC run, with one no contest. It is not known if he is even still under contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. They have not issued a statement as yet on his behavior.


Doesn’t look like McGregor is all too concerned about the results this weekend

This fight is going to be awesome. Rountree called out Saki after his last win, and its the perfect stylistic matchup to guarantee fireworks.

Ian McCall said he has no problem taking blood money from Ramzan Kadyrov. That’s...certainly... a stance to take.

McCall knows how bad it sounds. Evidently he doesn’t care.

Poor Will Brooks. Reminder: the UFC is not contractually obligated to pay their fighters if the opponent pulls out, even if the fighter is ready to go and fulfilled all their requirements.

Justin Gaethje had different sentiments Saturday night

If you don’t know who Darren Till is ahead of his main event slot against Cowboy Cerrone, here’s an introduction. His English trash talk is fantastic against Mike Perry. “Cos I like ye” is the greatest line I’ve read this weekend.
