Dana White once again looking like a complete and utter fool and projecting a bad light onto the professionalism of the UFC.

A fighter on his roster has just been arrested for charges of assault and Dana White is trying to rush him into the octagon to fight another man on the night of his arrest....for assault.

Absolutely ludicrous. Stephens could have beaten up a woman for all we know, Dana shouldn't even be thinking about getting him back into the octagon until Stephens' entire arrest has been cleared up.

As soon as it was announced Stephens had been arrested, the fight should have been cancelled there and then.

I think that this is terrible publicity for the UFC and I wish Dana would just go away for good.

@GrappleRetarded

Supposedly he saw a couple arguing and intervened and him and his friend beat the shit out of the guy according to one source 'half to death'. Then fled the state.

I covered the rumor a few posts up. Jordan Breen talked about it on his show and then there's a thread on Sherdog with a bit more info

But I agree with what you said about Dana. Not something he should be making public statements about until the whole story comes out.

Obviously it's not beating a woman, but it's still not OK. You see someone doing something wrong, you call the police and detain that person until they get there. If the cops had done what he supposedly did they'd be nailed for police brutality.

I don't think he was ever saying it was ok. This is far, far from ok.

He see's a man and a woman arguing, who happen to be Brother and Sister, so he goes crazy and beats the dude into a bloody pulp.

Lock this moron up for a while.

And to think Dana was trying to get Stephens out of his arrest because he thought Iowa had it in for him and Stephens. Utterly embarrassing and ridiculous on Dana's part.

GR, how do you know that ANYTHING you just said was true? For all you know, the brother kicked off and attacked him. I once seen a dude slap his chick in the face. I walked over to warn him not to do it again, and the girl attacked me. Obviously the bitch was crazy, but how do you know that Stephens didnt just see a dude hit a girl or something, went over and did something about it? I'd knock a guy out if I saw him hit a girl and theres a decent chance that scenario played out.

Dana said Iowa had it in for Stephens because the 'deal' changed 3 times. His focus is on getting fighters in the cage. People do illegal shit all the time. Charlie Sheen was the WWE's guest embassador. All of that shit gets brushed aside when a business is concerned, and Dana's only focus was on getting the guy out in time to fight.

OK, but a person who was supposedly actually there has alleged that he attacked he guy over a misunderstanding and there must have been enough evidence that the police got involved.

All of which is slightly more relevant to THIS case than something you saw in a completely unrelated case.

As I said above, if Stephens did even half of what it is alleged he did, he could be getting charged with attempted murder.

He and a friend allegedly beat a guy, got separated, then hauled him out of a taxi and beat him some more. Then he allegedly fled the state, and paid his friend off to take the fall for him.

Which adds conspiracy charges, etc to the bill.

Getting in a drunken fight is one thing, beating a guy two on one, and then trying to cover it up and fleeing the state is big boy federal penitentiary stuff.

In short, time will tell.

Don't get me wrong, dude probably did some bad shit. But coming out saying "Lock him up" or saying Dana is stupid for commenting on this is irrelevent because the whole situation hasnt been revealed.

If the "whole situation" is anything like what it is rumored to be, this guy should be fired immediately from the UFC and face a lengthy prison sentence.

Where are people getting all this info from???

The only information about this whole thing is from a FACEBOOK conversation. That hardly means there is any truth to it.

Well, the police are after him, to the extent that they're pulling strings from state to state to get a hold of the guy. That suggests it's more than just a Facebook conversation that they're going on.

But at this point, the key word is ALLEGEDLY.

I would however argue that the police don't usually pull this kind of shit unless they feel they have a good reason to do so.

And people say 'oh it's a conspiracy to make sure he doesn't earn any income' damn right. If someone got beaten half to death and you found out the guy who did it is appearing on national TV and making tens of thousands of dollars while the victim is laid up recovering you'd probably be doing what you can to make sure that doesn't happen.

I like Jeremy Stephens as a fighter, he's one of these guys at a smaller weight class who still comes to finish guys and generally puts on exciting fights.

If it was a simple bar fight, I wouldn't even think any thing of it. I personally think if you go out in public and go one on one with another guy and lose, you tuck your tail between your legs and accept the defeat.

But the second you two on one someone, that's not a fight, that's a beating and it's basically the most cowardly thing a man can do imo.

I would suspect a camera phone video exists of this incident. Every fight I've seen in the last 5 years had about 20 wallflowers standing around like idiots filming it when they could be breaking it up.
