Jeremy Stephens Heads To Guantanamo Bay

Jeremy Stephens has been traveling around since his five round main event war with number one contender Cub Swanson last month.  First Lil Heathen was in Mexico, then his hometown of Iowa, and now is off to Guantanamo Bay, to visit the troops.  Got to love how much the UFC cares about our military and how much time and effort these athletes put into showing their gratitude. ...
