"I just wanted to post this to let everyone know that I had the federal charges dropped. I am still dealing with the state but the charges aren't as serious as they seemed. So I hope to be back in the cage soon ... real soon. I'm just waiting on my excellent manager Steven (boogie) Bean to get that straightened out for me. I am gonna be the WEC lightweight champ soon, this is something I feel strongly about. So I'm telling everyone that is my goal and my dream and that is what I'm going to do so I will give it my all to do what I say I'm gonna do."

WEC featherweight contender Leonard Garcia gives fans an update on his current status since his recent arrest. Garcia was arrested on March 28, 2008, for the participation and distribution of cocaine in a drug trafficking crime ring in Texas. Fortunately for him, the federal charges levied against him were dropped so Garcia could avoid serious jail time. No word yet on a court date for his possible state charges. Stay tuned to for more details.
