Beau Taylor of the Tulsa Voice reportedly broke the news on Twitter, and the UFC has released the following statement about the situation (statement via MMA Fighting.com):

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.

Lee Mein, who fights professionally and is also the head instructor of Jordan, has not released a statement about the allegations.
