MMAjunkie.com has reported today that Jeremy Stephens, who was scheduled to main event the Fuel portion of the UFC card today in Minneapolis, was arrested this morning.

The story stated that Stephens has not been formally charged with a crime and no reason was given for the arrest.

Stephens was arrested at the Marriott City Center Hotel in Minneapolis, where the UFC housed all fighters and officials.  Stephens was taken to the Hennepin County Police Public Safety facility at 10:44 a.m. and it is unknown when he will be released.
