WEC featherweight fighter Leonard Garcia informs fans of his situation for the first time since his arrest last week. Garcia was arrested for the participation and distribution of cocaine in a drug-trafficking crime ring and was busted last week in Texas. No word yet on a court date. He is innocent until proven guilty.
