Former TUF Winner Rony Jason Gets Back On Track

Former TUF Winner Rony Jason Gets Back On Track

Rony Jason got back on track in impressive fashion Sunday night at UFC Fight Night 38, finishing Steven Siler in Brazil.

Jason, a former winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, connected with a right-left combo that floored Siler. While Siler protested the finish, it had already been declared over.

“Siler is a very tough guy, a knockout artist that comes in to finish the fight,” Jason said. “I am here to stay.”

Jason (14-4) was coming off a knockout loss himself at the hands of Jeremy Stephens last November. The defeat snapped a eight-fight win streak for the man in the mask, a run that included back-to-back finishes inside the Octagon.

“I want to fight again in June,” Jason said. “I am back with everything. I want to fight more often.”

For Siler (23-12), the loss was a second straight and dropped him to 5-3 with the UFC.

    This article should have been titled, “Jason and hometown ref rob fans and Siler of a fight.”

    It did seem like a quick stoppage as Siler was defending but most likely Jason would have finished it and the ref reacted to the way Siler went down I think. Early stoppage yes but not a horrible stoppage.

  • Dufresne says:

    When I first saw it live it looked like a good stoppage, but on the replay it was clear that Siler was conscious and was trying to defend himself. Unfortunately the ref didn’t have the benefit of a replay and had to make a decision in that split second and he made the wrong one. I don’t think it was a criminal stoppage by any means, but it was early.
