Jeremy Stephens has been released from the Polk County Jail after being jailed in Minnesota prior to his UFC on FX 5 bout with Yves Edwards. Stephens stands accused of an October 2011 assault outside a bar that nearly killed a man. Stephens’ management – EVO Agents – maintains the fighter’s innocence in a statement regarding the manner.
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.
Stephens is out on bail until his court date, which has yet to be named as of this post.
