    You're not a fan anymore cause of those charges? They could be totally bs. At least wait until he's found guilty.

    They could be, but people don't beat themselves into the icu and a coma for three days

    The whole thing sounds fishy to me. If he really beat the shit out of some random person that badly and had witnesses to back that story up, why did they let him go for a year before arresting him the night of a fight? If it is true, then yeah, fuck Stephens and I hope he does some time for it.

    As for him going down to Featherweight, I think he should fight the loser of Guida/Hioki, with the loser of that fight being cut.

    bring it on i dont think he carries his power into that division with him and i think his chin will be weaker at that division. basically imo bad move

    I anyone else shocked that so many Sherdoggers have a problem with Jeremy (allegedly) beating someone into a coma? I thought you people did that shit every day.

    He will be a great non-UFC material fighter at 145 too.

    Meh, I guess dropping to 145 might revitalize his career. But it's all the same imo. He'll still be a middle (or slightly below that) of the pack guy.

    I don't know Jeremy Stephens personally, but my cousin was his MT/striking coach. I saw him corner Jeremy in one of the UFC shows.

    So anybody got the story on Jeremy's bar fight then?

    They didn't "let him go". He fled to San Diego (where he trains). Immediately fled Des Moines to Omaha and then to San Diego before he could even be questioned about it in Iowa when it allegedly happened. Not sure why it took so long to get him into custody (probably distance).

    And it wasn't some random person. It was supposedly a friend of his and Stephens made his brother take the fall for him.

    He took Pettis down in R1 and played the 10-9 game. So Pettis had to play too, and won the next 2 rounds.
    Stephens did not "almost" beat Pettis.
    And please don't use retarded judges as your reference.

    All these white knights sticking up for a guy when they have no idea what really happened.

    I can't believe we are at the point where winning a fight (which may or may not have even happened in this case) is a crime.

    Starting shit has consequences and you never know who you might be fucking with. If he really fought some dude and massively won I don't see the problem.

    I'm suprised he's dropping to 145. I think they will match him up with Cody McKenzie or Joey Gambino.
