UFC’s Jeremy Stephens Finally Released From Jail | UFC NEWS


After being jailed just hours before his scheduled UFC on FX 5 bout with Yves Edwards on a felony warrant, Jeremy Stephens has now been released from jail.

In a statement on his website the Stephens camp stated the following:

Today, at 3:30pm, Jeremy was released from custody from the Polk County Jail. As you know, Jeremy has spent the last twelve days incarcerated, both in Iowa and Minnesota, missing his October 5 UFC fight against Yves Edwards, as well as many lucrative financial opportunities associated with that bout.

While Jeremy’s employer (UFC), his family, friends, and loyal fans have stood behind him, certainly the recent events have garnered some negative media attention.

Jeremy felt it was very important to thank each and every one of those who have stood by his side during this tough time. He wanted everyone to know that despite the negative situation that he’s been placed in, he has remained upbeat and positive, reflecting on the opportunities that have been and will be presented to him, reflecting on his family, and his firm believe in his innocence.

Jeremy’s legal team is already hard at work to prove what many already know; he is not guilty of the crimes he’s been accused of.
