Here's the official charge details. It states that he's being held without bail for a felony charge from another state.

Where are the Stephens vs the Minneapolis PD odds?



@Shawn91111
@danawhite Is he fighting Edwards or the Minneapolis PD?

I lol'd when I read that on Twitter. I think JS would do pretty well, until they bring out the taser.

If Stephens can't fight tonight this fight makes sense.
You have to think it wouldn't be fair for Yves Edwards and Thiago Tavares to go through full camp's and walk away without a fight.

Sucks for Stephens being in jail and I'll be hoping he fights tonight.

Man, if Stephens actually fights tonight, I wonder how Rogan will spin it.

I think he will arrive late like when Arianny was arrested for kicking Tiki in the face

Actually sorry to burst anyone's bubble but "Dana" certainly can pull some strings. Money talks. All he has to do is have the UFC lawyers make a phone call aor two nd Stephens should be out for the time being. If you don't think money talks I could tell you a zillion stories to prove that it does. You can get a lot done when you throw down a little cash and let the lawyers "work their magic". I am not sure if Stephens will fight tonight but I know damn well a high paid lawyer with a lot of clout can get him released...."no bail" or not. I have had a few personal experiences of my own where cash and a good lawyer changes people's tunes real quick.

Yeah, but who knows if Dana is willing to throw down the big bucks on a mid tier guy like Stephens.

One way or the other Stephens will fight if Dana went out of his way to say he IS fighting.


Either way I'm still stoked about this card

You didnt burst our bubble and like I said he wouldnt fight tonight...If he got arrested this morning odds are his court date wouldnt be until tomorrow at the earliest....Since its a felony out of state hes basically a fugitive...So they wont just let him go with a hope to see you back....

In smaller counties in smaller cities they get paid by the state to have pple in their jail...a lot depends on over-crowding and stuff sut since his charge is in another state...He wont go any where on a ROR in the same day....I could see at the most the very most....Being chaaperoned to the fight with armed guards and going right back to jail....

Money does talk but its not like dana would be willing to put up such a huge amount of anything for Jeremy Stephens....Hes not Jon Jones...
