UFC President Explains His Willingness To Do Anything To Get Stephens Out Of Jail | UFC NEWS

“I get the call this morning that he’s been arrested in his hotel room, I go straight to the police, the sheriff’s department here and start putting the pieces together on what’s going on and how to fix it. I’m sure you could tell by my tweeting I was 100-percent confident that I was going to get him out for this fight.

“Basically what happened is they do not like him in Des Moines, Iowa where this warrant is from. Basically, they’re going to extradite him, one of those situations, or not we’ll see what happens with this whole thing, but the kid’s been here since Monday no secret that he was going to be here. They arrest him at almost noontime on Friday after he weighs in yesterday and everything else. In my opinion after dealing with this all day, that was done on purpose.”

“I cut the deal with the people down in Des Moines, Iowa to get him out. Done deal, we cut the deal, I agree to it, we’re going to get him out. They change the deal. Okay, well I accept that deal too. They changed the deal. Every time they would lay out a new deal, I would accept it and they would change it. They kept trying to make it harder and harder and harder and harder.”

“I was devising a plan to break him out and come over here and do this fight. So they finally get to a deal with me for an astronomical amount of money to bail him out and I agree to it and then they did it again. So they’re going to stick it to this kid big time when he gets down to Iowa. They don’t like him, they’re going to stick it to him, and they run me out all day playing games with me. People have gone on three state killing sprees and get freaking bailed out of jail. This kid’s got an assault charge in Des Moines, Iowa and he’s not going to have fun when he gets there cause they got it out for this kid big time.”

“I was willing to have two police officers, armed police officers bring him from jail, to come fight tonight, and then bring him back to jail. Let’s do that, let the kid get paid, because he’s going to have to spend money on this thing anyways he’s got a family to take care of, it’s crazy. Continue reading on page 2… (Video included)

    Terrible situation. Hope it works out for him. Being charged with assault and battery is no joke. I can speak from experience from when I was younger. It’s just not worth it.~Bob’O

  2. HerpADerp says:

    It’s easy to say “it’s not worth it” after it’s done. Rational thought seldom comes into play in times of anger.

    • Bob'O says:

      HerpAtwerp, Actually it’s called being young and learning from your mistakes you dumb ass. Shut your self-righteous pie hole bro. ~Bob’O

      • Mayor of Deviance says:

        You’re the only one being self-righteous. He wasn’t insulting you either. Clearly rational thought very seldomly comes through your head.

        • Bob'O says:

          Yeah, Hide behind your fake name you gutless turd. You’re too stupid to comprehend rational thought.

          Now get back to your deviant lifestyle you sicko. 😉 ~Bob’O

  3. Andrew Heron says:

    Let him rot in jail, shouldn’t let him out . Would you let me out if I were in jail… don’t think so

  4. Don Gwinn says:

    Uh, I see another problem for Stephens. I don’t know anything at all about his situation, the charge, the warrant, or the circumstances, but if I were sitting where he’s sitting, I wouldn’t be excited in a happy way about having Dana White negotiating with the police/sheriff/court/whoever he says he’s been dealing with. It kinda sounds like these were the kind of negotiations where Dana calls people “bro” and says “fuckin'” a lot, and it doesn’t sound like it went very well, and now Dana’s basically trashing these people in public, accusing them of malfeasance and dishonesty.

    When he then predicts that Stephens is “going to have a rough time” when they get their hands on him, I think, well, yeah. They don’t like him? Maybe they don’t like him because he left their jurisdiction with a warrant and then it turned out he had a fast-talking rich guy with a dirty mouth who wanted to throw his clout and his money around to get his boy some special treatment.

    • Chris says:

      “Special treatment”? You mean bail?

    • The Truth says:

      If he has a warrant for assault and battery or whatever, he needs to deal with it. That said, if you spend some time watching Court TV or are familiar with legal proceedings you will begin to notice that the D.A.’s office can be every bit as malicious and dishonest as the people that stand accused.

      I’m not even saying you’re wrong about Dana’s “help”, I would just suggest to anyone to do your best to stay as far away from that kind of mess as possible. Make good choices and don’t place yourself in potentially bad situations.
