FIGHT ARREST: UFC Fighter Jeremy Stephens Talks

UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens spent 12 days in jail.

Authorities arrested Stephens in Minneapolis nearly two weeks ago just hours before his nationally televised fight on FX against Yves Edwards.  Stephens was then extradited to Iowa.

Stephens walked out of Polk County Jail Wednesday and spoke with Channel 13's Keith Murphy Thursday afternoon. 

The 26 year old Stephens faces charges of willful injury and assault causing bodily harm from an alleged bar fight last year at Fat Tony's.

Stephens maintains his innocence.  He says he was not involved in the bar fight, then had to miss a real fight.

Stephens missed a big payday while in jail.
