“We were made aware that James Lee Mein, father of UFC competitor Jordan Mein, was arrested yesterday on allegations of felony sexual assault. Mr. Mein is accused of sexually assaulting a housekeeper at the UFC’s host hotel in Tulsa, Okla.

The UFC finds the allegations against Mr. Mein deplorable and we fully support local law enforcement in its investigation. The UFC is also prohibiting Mr. Mein from attending tonight’s event should he post bail.

Jordan Mein will remain on tonight’s card.”

    Nothing new there…just sounds like another MMA guy trying to justify/stick up for the sport and its image.

    I’ve never hear a bigger crock of shit then that guy in the radio interview. Just has absolutely no facts or anything and acts like he was in the room. Complete bullshit that they even asked him about this with him admittedly only hearing hearsay

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 9

    So what happens if he is found guilty after the next court date? Won’t Mein need a coach travelling to the US with him for future fights?

    Pretty awesome that this all turned out to be a bullshit accusation. Nice of the UFC to bar him from the event for nothing.

    False accusations should be punished brutally, it’s a corruption of the justice system.
