Sounds to me like he was running his mouth.

"Oh yeah, it's a big double standard," Taylor said when asked about the Jackson situation and the UFC's support of the fighter. "I'm sure if I were the ex-middleweight champion, I could get away with stuff. I'm sure if I would have done (what Jackson did), I'd be banned."

i was hoping this would happen. he's not very good and his lay and pray style is hard to watch.

I think its more of what he said intsead of his style or the loss. dont forget he got kneed while on the ground in that fight and was forced to fight thru it. he dont run his mouth about rampage and he keeps his ufc job atleast 1 more fight

He'll get picked up by some lesser org. I have to say though im glad he's gone. that guy was eventually going do something stupid and create a black eye for the UFC...imo

I bet you Affliction signs him, because Jesse was on the Ultimate Fighter, and had the potential to win, and Affliction will make a huge promotion out of it.

He needs to learn when to talk and when to shut up. I would like to have seen him in the final as he earnt the spot. But, he wont be missed.

I really doubt that. Affliction seems to be in the habit of picking up all-stars. Jesse isn't even remotely popular. I'm sure most casual fans don't know him as anything more than the guy who went crazy and kicked a limousine window out. I would guess he'll either join someone like EliteXC or just fade into obscurity completely.

I'm hoping the latter. The guy shouldn't have been let back in the first place. Gives the sport a bad name. Rampage did what he did because he had a serious breakdown most likely as the result of a genuine mental disorder. This kid did what he did because he's a moron. Not excusable.

I like Jesse, and hope he gets picked up by another decent org where he can find success. I think its bullshit hes been kicked out of the ufc for making a comment as trivial as he did about quinton.

I dont know what he actually said. But to be honest the UFC probably wanted an excuse to boot him and he gave them one.

I don't think he should have been let go. I know his style is kind of boring at times, but I see potential in him. I think he could become a really good fighter. With that being said, I don't think he will have too much of a problem getting picked up by another organization. I'm thinking Elite XC.

I can almost hear the hype from another organization already...he was too badass for the UFC..nothing can contain this juggernaut (clip of limo window being kicked out) an animal that can't be contained...
