UFC on Fox 5: Lightweight Jeremy Stephens talks Yves Edwards

Jeremy Stephens recently missed a UFC event because he was arrested on assault charges. Now he's back and ready to face Yves Edwards while charges are pending.

UFC Lightweight Jeremy Stephens had to be pulled from the UFC on FX 5 card in October when he was arrested on outstanding assault charges from Iowa. Now he's been slated to face the same man he would have fought then, veteran Yves Edwards, at UFC on Fox 5 on December 8.

Stephens recently visited some Wounded Warriors and shot this video. It's an apparent attempt to generate some positive attention to deflect talk of his pending assault charges. It's a rare decent PR move from an MMA fighter. Huzzahs.

Naturally it's the oldest PR tactic in the book. "Hey look at ol' John Rockefeller giving out dimes to newsboys" was a PR campaign over 100 years ago. But still, sometimes it's good to go with a classic.

He talks about his upcoming bout with Yves Edwards at the end.
