'TUF: Brazil' winner Rony 'Jason' rattled by lack of mask at UFC 147   [View Full Version]

Rony "Jason" Mariano Bezerra was rattled.

After winning "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" and picking up his first UFC win as part of a pay-per-view event in his home country, the Brazilian featherweight called it both the happiest and saddest day in his MMA career.

Why? He couldn't wear his trademark Jason Voorhees mask to the octagon.

Bezerra (11-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) had worn the hockey mask, which was popularized by the "Friday the 13th" horror series, throughout his career. But at UFC 147, which took place at Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, he wasn't permitted.

So after defeating Godofredo "Pepey" de Oliveira (8-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) via unanimous decision, he voiced his disappointment.

"Today was the happiest day of my life, but it was also the saddest," he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I've carried with me this Jason mask since my first fight. And for the first time, in my dream – which was to fight in the UFC – I wasn't allowed to walk in with the mask.

Big mistake if UFC isn't letting him wear it. A little flavor never hurt anyone. Unless there is an infringement I don't see why not.

Does he mean he wasn't allowed to wear it inside the cage? It some of the highlight it shows him with his mask during his entrance.

Weird. Wonder if its a copyright thing or something?

That's what I'm guessing.

I'm thinking this must be what he meant. I know he was carrying it with him as he was walking to the cage, and I thought I saw him put it on for a while. Maybe he's been allowed to wear it in the cage until the fight is about to start for previous matches and he was bothered that he wasn't allowed to this time?
