WEC lightweight Leonard Garcia post an update on his mySpace page regarding his federal drug trafficking charges:
â€œI 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 arenâ€™t as serious as they seemed. So I hope to be back in the cage soon â€¦ real soon. Iâ€™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 Iâ€™m telling everyone that is my goal and my dream and that is what Iâ€™m going to do so I will give it my all to do what I say Iâ€™m gonna do.â€
While his more serious federal charges were dropped, he will still have to face the state charges, before returning to the cage. The WEC has removed Garcia from their website.
