Jeremy Jackson, who appeared on season four of "The Ultimate Fighter," was arrested late last month and charged with seven felony offenses, including two counts of forcible rape.

The 26-year-old Jackson was apprehended on June 30 in Oxnard, Calif., and is being held in a Ventura County jail, with bail set at $1 million.

Officials with the Ventura County Sheriff's Department confirmed the arrest and charges with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Events surrounding the arrest were not made available.

In addition to the two counts of forcible rape, Jackson was charged with kidnapping to commit another crime, first-degree residential burglary, assault with a firearm, dissuading a witness by force or threat, and criminal threats. At his initial arraignment, three additional charges -- all felonies -- were levied against Jackson, which included two counts of sexual assault and one count of sex crimes (aggravated circumstances).

Jackson is due in Ventura County Superior Court again Wednesday, at which time he is expected to enter pleas to the charges.

Jackson's appearance on the fourth season of "TUF" was short-lived. UFC President Dana White kicked him off the reality show after he violated rules by leaving the fighter house to meet a woman.

He was invited back to fight on the season finale and suffered a neck injury in a submission loss to Pete Spratt.

Since that fight in November of 2006, Jackson (9-5) has fought just once, winning a Total Combat match in March of last year. Link

Wow, that's a way to screw up your life early. Couldnt believe he is only 26. Guess everyone can't have the super famed turn around story.

I knew it was a bad mistake to not give the guy a break for boning a lifeguard, he had such a hard time with his brother killing himself and having no home, when he was on TUF he was living in his car, it was good for them to invite him back for the finale but that neck injury must have just sealed the deal and made him turn to a life of crime, not to say he is guilty of any of that but thats a bit of a full and varied charge list to be correctly incorrect

Real shame, the guy had serious potential!
