Game wise, I wouldn't be to heartbroken if the fight was canceled, as I thought it was a tough fight to pick.

Overall it would suck if it was canceled because it had potential to be FOTN.

Me too. I'm betting Dana White is going to keep it gangster, pull some strings and just throw some money at the problem.

Anyone think the "Lil Heathen" will be more angry than usual for this fight?

I don't know about that. I'm not sure Dana White has the power to make felony charges go away. I mean with them being public now. I could be wrong though. Is Stephens the kinda guy he would even do that for?

"The lightweight fighter is still currently in police custody, and is being held without bail."



--- wow... Dana is optimistic.

Good point/questions. The only thing is, what is Stephens warrant(s) for? Perhaps Dana can come in, say "This guy is my fighter, let him fight, Jeremy go turns himself in where he is wanted and straightens it out." I think Dana would try, if for no other reason than to salvage a card that already lost one fight 24 hours ago.
