Jesse Taylor Dumped Again by UFC

(Ah, memories.)

On Tuesday, the Wrestling Observer reported that TUF 7‘s Jesse “JT Money” “Mongo” Taylor had been released by the UFC — for the second time — suggesting that it was his insensitive comments about Quinton Jackson following Rampage’s arrest that ultimately sunk him.

MMA Junkie caught up with Taylor recently to get his take on the situation, and it seems that just as he had no regrets for repeatedly pissing his shorts on national television, he has no regrets for running his mouth about the UFC’s troubled former light-heavyweight champ:

“I thought the whole thing was blown out of proportion. I just said, ‘What goes around comes around,’ kind of meaning about the double standards. Not meaning anything bad. I guess they kind of took it the wrong way, but I didn’t mean anything bad by it….I don’t regret [making the comments] at all. I don’t know if [the UFC is] looking for an excuse to get me out of there or what. The comments were nothing.”

Unfortunately, to the UFC, the comments were something. But even this turn of events can’t shake Mongo’s glassy-eyed optimism.

“Hopefully I didn’t leave on a bad note. [Ed. note: *shakes head*] I wouldn’t mind fighting for them again. Right now, first things first, is just to find another fight — hopefully in a major organization — and get back out there….Keep on the lookout. There should be something big in the next couple weeks about where I’m going.”

You heard it here, folks — keep an eye on TMZ to see which jail Taylor will be going to after his inevitable drunken public rampage and subsequent arrest. ‘Cause you know what? What goes around comes around, brah.

That's good news of all UFC fighters. they don't have to fight a stinker. Imagine you are grappling with him. And who knows - he might be shitting himself at home.

Bye bye Mongo. Second chances are hard to come by. Maybe you'll get a third chance once you are house broken.

Well I sure hope the fact that I was kicked out for acting like a ass during the final night of TUF, assaulting women and breaking personal property...then reinstated just to get beat like a bitch, run my mouth about a guy who has gained and lost more then I ever can JUST to be kicked out again DOESN'T MEAN I LEAVE ON A BAD NOTE!@!!!@!@

You guys at CP should have a contest to name what Mongo thinks "leaving on a bad note" is.... or we could have a Grudge Match between Miragliotta and Mongo for biggest oppertunity wasted in the UFC this year!

Taylor is a total queef tard. Anyone who pisses his pants on T.V. intentionally needs to get off the mat and go into therapy. But honestly, I don't think his I.Q. is high enough for therapy to have any effect, so it might be best if he were just institutionalized. I mean, doesn't he have a son? Should any father out there want to have his son see him acting like a fool and pissing himself on T.V. He should be ashamed of himself for all eternity. His kid will be ridiculed for all time as having a father that is a total out of contol loser that needs to wear a diaper. Don't even get me started on his lack of combative skills!!!

I was just so glad that CB beat him, giving the UFC all the more reason to dump his ass. If Taylor won, there would be all this talk about who the "real" Ultimate Fighter was. Now Taylor was clowned by a guy who was clowned twice by the winner of the show. That's a lot of clowning........CLOWNS!

He's a douche, shouldn't have brought his sorry ass back the first time.

"On Tuesday, the Wrestling Observer reported that TUF 7’s Jesse “JT Money” “Mongo” Taylor had been released by the UFC — for the second time — suggesting that it was his insensitive comments about Quinton Jackson following Rampage’s arrest that ultimately sunk him."
So did the UFC say that is why they are dumping him or is that what the Wrestling Observer think is the reason?

Honestly I am glad he is gone and I think the UFC only brought him back to try to squeeze a little more pub out of this big pile of sadness in a pair of failure shorts.

God help me, I'm taking Taylor's side on this one You wanna dump him because he's a boring fighter, fine. No arguments there. But the thing with Rampage was high school girl crap.

At least if he does fight somewhere else I can use his fight time to scrub my floor or wash my ass so something productive gets done.
