Report | Allegations Against Stephens Show He Beat A Man To Critical Condition | UFC NEWS


We like to abide by the code of “innocent until proven guilty.”

The media and legal system can relay facts in a sometimes bias way that will lead you to think and feel how they want.

Before reading this report from the Des Moines register it is important to remember that this is just one side of the story.

Check it out:

The victim had reportedly been asked to leave the bar and was still in the parking lot when Stephens and Bachman emerged soon after.

According to the victim’s wife, Stephens punched the victim in the left eye. The victim leaned against the building and Bachman punched him on the head and face several times, police said.

The victim’s wife helped him get into their car and was trying to lock the doors when Bachman reportedly pulled the victim out of the vehicle by his feet. Stephens and Bachman then allegedly punched and kicked the victim on his head and body for about a minute, authorities said.

The suspects fled. The victim was unconscious and stopped breathing twice, police reports show. He was intubated and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

    Sounds one sided to me

  2. MooreUSMC says:

    Might be biased, but the again maybe Stevens is a d-dag and should be beaten by two dudes while his wife watches. You don’t know until the facts come out. If this is a fake story Stevens should be allowed to punch the guy in the face as much as he wants…. Personal opinion.

  3. The King says:

    not good

  4. Bitch Ass Greg J. says:

    I’m just wondering what the guy did inside the bar to get fvcked up like that by an accomplished MMA fighter and his tag team partner..if this story is true.

  5. ya herd says:

    i dont know what anderson is trying to prove???/ we all new he was going to destroy bonnar… Silva is the best mma fighter ever, but if he dosent fight jones he is stupid.. all this hard work to be called the best mma fighter ever will be beat by jones.. think about it jones has probly beat better competion alredy hes only in his 20s, nobody has came close to beating him… jones will break all of andersons recoreds in my opinion, the only way silva can be called the best mma fighter ever is by beating jones its that simple… people will always say jones would of beat him.. when i know silva would take jones out

  6. peter says:

    Cain with that glass chin JDS wins? joke … Cain will be knocked out in the second half later … JDS is the best heavyweight I’ve ever seen!

    My thoughts on last night

    1. Fitch showed enormous heart and picked up a great win, really enjoyed the fight..did I just say I enjoyed a John Fitch fight?!? Well for once i did!

    2. Glover Tex is a beast! he’s legit, he looks like a HW to me. He is going to be a massive force and genuine threat to Jones supremacy. No wonder Rua dodged him big time.

    3. Great to see Big Nog back in the UFC and was really glad he picked up a win. IMO behind only Fedor as the best ever HW of all time.

    4. Silva as expected dominated Bonnar, one of the biggest mis matches I’ve seen in the UFC…Showed he’s still the best guy in the world even though I stand by my opinion JBJ would beat him if they ever fought.

    5. The fans in Rio fucking SUCKED balls. They were booing fights that were fucking awesome. I don’t get it and I hate that more than anything.

    6. Had low expectations but really enjoyed the fights.

  9. Can you pass me the TRT? says:

    Big Country sucks as a coach. Its cool that Carwin warms up with them and has his training partners and his personal coaches to help his team. After watching this episode I could see why Team Nelson guys are getting annoyed and pissed. Yet that Colton dude on the show is completely Big Country’s bitch always defending him.

  10. Can you pass me the TRT? says:

    They should of just offered him Werdum and it would of been awesome and then throw some hungry kids in the other injured ridden fights that were getting scrapped and the could of gone on

  11. Herpa Derp says:

    Is it me or is everyone having problems commenting on the story they are wanting to comment on but end up on a different story?

  12. mmafanboy says:

    Yeah, Anderson first said how it would be an honour to fight Bonnar. And then he pulls that cocky bs in the cage totally disrespecting and degrading Bonnar… Good fighter but may be bi-polar.

  13. mmafanboy says:

    Really? Your a fighter. You think the fans or Dana give two s**ts about your moral dilemna? Dana should re-draw contracts for fighters like Silva and Jones. Silva…fight someone legitimate at 205….you cleaned out your division and its effin boring now. Jones, fight who the hell Dana tells you to and quit the whiny bit**ing. Your not a champ, your a chump when your ducking certain competitors.

  14. 123 says:

    i agree with michael, but anderson silva would make jon jones look silly.. in MY opinion.

  15. 123 says:

  16. 757 says:

    Ha ha fatasskboard warrior…your name says it all. With a name like that we all know you have never been in a gym, a fight, or anything. Stop acting tough and calling people bitches. Go eat some more cookies and play your xbox or with yourself or whatever you do….ha ha fat asskboardwarrior….whatever

  17. 757 says:

    Fights who they put up. Beats everybody….Franklin, Leben, Belfort, Henderson, Griffin, Okami, Bonnar, Sonnen x2. Not to mention what he did prior to UFC. I think he is the best also. They all fight good fighters. There aren’t many bums at that level.

  18. ballsackface says:

    people forget he owned in pride as well apart from 1 sub loss.
    he smashed hendo when hendo was in his prime, the same hendo that people said would hbomb jbj
    hes fighting his natural weight class. there is no in between 185 and 205 unless its catch.
    he has not cut for this fight and came in at 202. you can see he was not ripped like he normally is so people need to wind their necks in a little.
    anyone thats been put in front of him he has beaten
    Jon Jones is massive, he cuts a lot to make 205 and thats why a lot of people think he should fight at HW
    you want to put a natural HW against a natural 185?
    Then you claim shit about new school fans?
    I been watching this shit since half of you were in nappies and even trained for a bit (but i was shit and couldnt get my head around jitz so i gave up like a *****)

    how you can deny anderson is beyond me.
    he cant help that his devision is full of shitters (in comparison to him) he makes them look shit and the only reason chael stood a chance was cos he was 17 men that night

  19. Fortyb4five says:

    amazing night of fights, brazil is such an awesome crowd.

  20. Sugar Ponybear says:

    Last time I checked Anderson Silva beat Rich Franklin 6 years ago to this date. Not in June 2012. Damian Maia, no he hasn’t beaten any one of the three top fighters he fought (including Silva) but he’s a great fighter who was supposed to BJJ the shit out of Silva and he got straight up embarrassed. He went in injured and still beat a roid monkey, twice. Vitor Belfort, a Journey Man? He crushed him in rd. 1. He beat Hendo 4 years ago when Hendo didn’t need to rely on TRT, he’s beaten who was considered top contender in Middleweight division on fight time. He’s beaten some of the same fighters that are going up against (or supposed to) Jones. You want to knock opponents, Rua can barley make it past Vera, lost to Griffin and Hendo. Jackson is trying his damn near hardest (even before the Jones fight) to get out of his contract. Rashad Evans took him the distance and Belfort damn near ripped his arm off. I’m not knocking either of these fighters or their competition but if you want to compare, Silva has had the better work. Who would win a fight between the two? Who knows it could go either way but I’d put my money on Silva. Is the Middleweight division that weak or is Anderson that good? If Jones stays on top a clears out his division people will probably say he fights nobody’s also. In six years people will be thinking ‘Rampage, Rua, those guys aren’t shit (if they already aren’t thinking that now).

  21. jim says:

    Silva wasn’t even the story, he did what he was supposed to do against a guy that was basically retired.

    Give props to Fitch and Maia.

    How about Maldonado? Damn…

  22. Dick Diaz says:

    i watched the Just Scrap Maui II main event with Mahe vs Thomas; I was definitely impressed with that main event!

  23. Dick Diaz says:

    lol i don’t see how he didn’t see this coming though… for sure, he had to at least thought it was going to be a possibly; a month out with no opponent? seriously.

  24. Dick Diaz says:

    why are all of our comments going to this page?!?! BJPenn.com needs to fix this ASAP…

  25. maurice says:

    The fuk is hatin on silva? Demolished franklin twice in his prime. Unified the ritles by easily beatin HENDO. Beat top contenders marquart, sonnen, yushin, etc. Made fukn vitor belfort look like nothing on tbe feet. Submitted very high level black belt in lutter. Could possibly be the best lhw in tbe world. Even his “lackluster” fights YEARS ago he still managed to outclass his opponents and showcase sick skills. Most complete fighter. Hes a master in his cage. Give silva “cans” or these imaginary super mws in the ufc that u guys r sayn he has been dodging…it doesnt matter, silva makes everyone look silly. FUK the haters.

    And another thing, if vitor, machida, page, bonnar and shad can create so many openings againzt jones, silva can too. Imo silva would tool jones last 5opponents in much quicker and smooth fashion.

  26. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    Probably was EPO’s to deal with altitude in Denver. Just goes to show you how many cheats there really are in MMA

  27. CombatRusse says:

    That was a great card, that revivified my passion for this sport. It brought every thing from superhuman skills and confidence (Silva), great technical BJJ skills (Maia), good scrap (silva-fitch), bravery (Fabio Maldonado), …

  28. CombatRusse says:

    A shitty situation for Cormier.
    He is in his prime and he is loosing precious time (and money)

  29. @GetEducatedMMA says:

    I had not heard that Guida moved to 145. thats a very smart smart move don’t you think? he has the cardio to compete with the 145ers but not the strength or power to compete with top 5 lightweights
