UFC lightweight, Jeremy Stephens has had his bail set for $100,000 today ahead of an early afternoon court date in Minneapolis, Minnesota, something that will likely result in extradition to his home state of Iowa.

Stephens, who is currently being held at the Hennepin County Jail in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will be facing extradition to Iowa for an assault charge.
