Multiple sources are reporting that the UFC has once again released the troubled middleweight fighter, Jesse Taylor. He was the only fighter on the “Ultimate Fighter” reality series to be released after the show was over, but he was given a second chance at UFN 14 against C.B. Dollaway. After being choked out in the first round and following that up with comments regarding the “Rampage” Jackson story, the UFC has seemingly had enough.

When asked what would happen if he had done what Jackson had done, Taylor replied:

I’m sure if I were the ex-middleweight champion, I could get away with stuff. I’m sure if I would have done (the same thing that Jackson did), I’d be banned (from the UFC).

There were also rumors that Taylor had skipped a few AA meetings and the UFC had figured that Taylor still hadn’t matured. It’s highly unlikely that Taylor will be back in the UFC, but the same was said about Tito Ortiz so we’ll have to wait and see.
