Yves Edwards Thanks Fans for Sticking by Him Through the Jeremy Stephens Mess

| by

Yves Edwards was scheduled to face Jeremy Stephens Friday night at UFC On FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot. Stephens didn't miss weight, or suffer an injury that caused him to be removed from the fight.

No, Stephens was arrested early Friday on a felony charge handed down in Iowa. Stephens wound up spending the day in a Minnesota jail, and is likely to do the same in Iowa once he is processed.

UFC president Dana White made it known that he tried his best to get Stephens out and into the Octagon for his scheduled match with Edwards. However, White was denied and the bout was scrapped.

Edwards released a statement on his Twitter account thanking his fans for always sticking by him:
