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.
