Head Cleared? Jesse Taylor May Return to the UFC on July 19th

After becoming the first fighter to ever be kicked off of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series after the show had concluded, Jesse Taylor appears ready to get anothershot only months after his removal from the finale. It was Taylor who was supposed to fight Amir Sadollah at the TUF Finale, instead C.B. Dollaway fought his way back on and eventually fell victim to another armbar submission.

Taylor was kicked off by UFC President Dana White after he kicked out a window in a limousine and “terrorized” some females at a Las Vegas casino.

Now FightHype is reporting that sources close to the situation have confirmed to them that Taylor will be returning to the Octagon on July 19th. The initial thought is to have Taylor go up against Dollaway, but it would be a very short turnaround for Dollaway, even though he lost early in the 1stRound and sustained no serious injuries.

If true, it would add to an already interesting July 19th card that already features current UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson “Spider” Silva in a Light Heavyweight match against knockout artist James “Sandman” Irvin.
