Taylor was given a “Second Chance” at UFC Fight Night 14, but lossed the fight in the first round by submission to TUF 7 runner-up CB Dollaway.
Taylor was again involved in controversy when he spoke out about the Quinton “Rampage” Jackson arrest, saying:
“what goes around comes around, I guess.”
“Oh yeah, it’s a big double standard,”
“I’m sure if I were the ex-middleweight champion, I could get away with stuff. I’m sure if I would have done, I’d be banned.”
