Jesse Taylor, "The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rampage vs. Team Forrest" finalist who was kicked out of the competition due to a drunken, post-show Las Vegas rampage, says he has since cut alcohol out of his life.

Taylor discussed the situation in a video interview for SpikeTV.com, and in it, he says that when the show's producers flew him back to Las Vegas, he was told it was for a follow-up interview.

Instead, UFC president Dana White broke the news that Taylor had been kicked out of the UFC and that he would be replaced in a June 21 finale fight with Amir Sadollah.

he should have cut the drinking out during the show. but i guess that's what young guys do, do stupid things when they drink.

Personally I think they should cut the guy some slack. UFC allows fighter that have been in jail, fighters that have tested positive for drugs and steroids.
so what! the guy got drunk and knocked out a window, and harrassed some girls

Way to go with the spoiler. Thanks for messing it up for those who haven't seen the show yet.

Shame you don't have the strength of your own convictions.

he did it to him self, if you want to be a professional you need to act like a professional and thats not how a professionals act, when you show up to a new job and the boss is watching what do you do.........You act Professional if you act like a jackass on day one you wont be there to long.

I don't feel bad for any grown man who runs around the house like a monkey and then proceeds to piss himself (he also has a 3 year old son who looks up to him at home). I don't know what kind of friends you have but I don't know any grown ass father who behaves like this and deserves pitty.

MAybe this was for the better. Hopefully he tries to live w/o alcohol because of this. I mean the guy has a son he should start setting a ******* example, but i do hope after he cleans himself up the UFC will give him a chance.

If you were unable to guess that it was Taylor getting booted off the show, you deserve to have the suprise spoiled. I knew it was Jesse the second the preview for the show came on....even so, so what you found out early who got booted, you didnt have to click the link and read the article you could have waited till saturday to find out exactly what happened.


As far as him getting thrown under a bus, he did deserve it but I do feel for the guy, everyone makes mistakes regardless if they have kids or not. Its a shame that his kid will eventually see it but I think we will see him in the UFC soon enough, I doubt White will ban him for good.

Very nice of you to stick up for your camp member, well done.

The fact remains that, yes I did have my suspicions that it was Jessie who would get booted off due to his previous antics in the house with alcohol - that did not however mean it was 100% him that did what was previewed.

In the UK, we don't get the show until much later...even those of us that download the torrent have to get in from work to get to the PC to get it downloaded in time for viewing later on, that is why there is a ruling on spoilers to take this into account. Cornish above all others was the champion of this ideal, and has gone and done a complete reversal on this one - I really don't consider it a 'personal attack'.

Wow you brits are awnry! Give Cornish a break your acting like he crammed the news down your throat. There is no need to call him an idiot, the guy is from across the pond as well I'm sure he didnt sabotage your dreams on purpose.
