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.”

    Ex-middleweight? Rampage? I guess Jesse hasn't given up the drinking after all.

    What he said is true but he's in no place to run his mouth cause Rampage is a star and he isn't. Losing him isn't a big deal at all and affliction won't want him Tom. They get established fighters but EliteXC gives 2nd rate fighters and UFC wash outs belts and title shots so they'll probably take him.

    Tough luck, but the kid had his chances and he blew them all.

    He was absolutely right about what he said, but the dumb ass should have known that that was something you just keep to yourself if you're in his position.

    Bad new Steveo, this guy already has a kid. But I agree with you guys that this guy should have kept his mouth shut. I hate PC, but when you are on the edge of being booted from the UFC you should be as PC as you can. Not affliction, but elite will pick him up.

    Keep your fucking head down and train your ass off so you don't fucking submitted in the first fucking round. That's his biggest problem… he's worried what's going on outside his own box. Maybe if you won a fight then you might get away with running yo head!
