Jesse Taylor Given The Boot From The UFC Again

The Ultimate Fighter Season 7 veteran Jesse Taylor (6-3) has apparently been released by the UFC again, according to the Print Edition of The Wrestling Observer.

After earning a spot in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 7, Taylor was replaced with runner-up CB Dollaway after going on a drunken pillage of a Las Vegas Hotel following the taping of the show.

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.”
