Dana White gives his side of Jeremy Stephens arrest situation (Updated)

Dana White did everything he could to get Jeremy Stephens out of jail and into the Octagon for his scheduled UFC on FX 5 bout with Yves Edwards on Friday at the Target Center in Minneapolis. But it wasn't meant to be. The fight was canceled and Stephens, as of the time of this writing, is still being held in a local jail. "I was 100 percent confident I was going to get him out and he was going to fight," White said at the post-fight press conference. The drama started Friday morning, when the UFC lightweight was arrested by Henepin County, Minn. authorities at the Marriott in Minneapolis and booked on an outstanding felony warrant. White said Stephens was held on a two assault charges based on a 2011 incident in Des Moines, Iowa. One commanded $1,000 bail and the other $20,000. "Where they ended was f--- insane," White said. "I mean, I could have gotten [Charles] Manson out for what they wanted me to pay for him."
