Jeremy Stephens arrested in Minneapolis; Dana White says the fight with Yves Edwards is still onPosted on October 5, 2012, 01:19 PM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Lightweight veteran Jeremy Stephens was arrested at the Marriot City Center Hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Stephens is currently scheduled to fight Yves Edwards on Fuel TV portion of UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot. It is still unclear what caused Stephens' arrest by Minneapolis Police Department, but many questions were raised around Lil' Heathen's participation in tonight's Octagon action at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
Here's the report from MMAJunkie.com:
According to a Minneapolis Police Department representative, Stephens was arrested at the Marriott City Center Hotel, which is this week's UFC host hotel, and arrived at the Hennepin County Public Safety Facility at 10:44 a.m. CT local time. It's currently unknown when Stephens is scheduled to be released from the facility.
Despite the controversy, and perhaps the confusion around Jeremy Stephen's arrest, UFC President Dana White tweeted that the fight with Yves Edwards is still on. White declared "no one told Jeremy Stephens isn't fighting", adding that fans should stop listening to MMA media.
Don't listen to the media! Nobody ever told them Jeremy isn't fighting. He is fighting!!
