With a UFC pink slip in hand, TUF cast member Jesse Taylor (7-3) proved he can do something right by defeating Drew Fickett (35-7) by first round TKO at Total Combat 32 on Thursday night.

Taylor was kicked out of The Ultimate Fighters 7 finale for going on a drunken rampage in a Las Vegas, casino.

Taylor was brought back to face TUF 7 runner up CB Dollaway, but losed the fight by submission (Peruvian Neck Tie). He then made some questionable comments about Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s hit and run incident and how the UFC treats fighters differently based on their star power. Shortly after the comments were made Taylor was let go by the UFC.

Being one of the best fighters on the TUF 7 show and this upset win over Drew Fickett, Taylor has turned things around and finally given himself some bargaining chips to sign with a bigger promotion.

    That's kind of surprising. I figured if Jesse won, he would have done it by decision.

    How can u call him the real TUF winner? Amir didnt lose and hasnt lost. Amir beat Dollaway twice and Jesse got raped by C.B when they fought. But yeah this fight is surprising I guess Fickett isnt getting better even with all the experience and wins he is earning in the lower shows.

    It was probably a good move to drop down to welterweight because he can out muscle a lot of fighter. Wonder how this loss is going to play with Ficketts ego.
