    So the guy just got suspended for a year b/c he got caught juicing. Does he get a THIRD chance at the fighting in the UFC next Sept or is this going to be it? Believe he'll be 35.

    After screwing up majorly twice, I'd imagine he'd be eager to fight at least once more inside the octagon before calling it quits. I'm just amazed he'd ruin his comeback story in this manner, puts a real damper on the moment.

    Spot on. Definitely a talent, but you couldn't play it straight – this once-in-a-lifetime shot at redemption? For your two sons, (the last chapter of) your career, to get yourself out of that shoebox of a flat?

    If these weren't all factors to do right by, then I don't know what would be. Was genuinely happy for the guy.

    Terrible nickname, dumber than a box of rocks and a unlikeable guy. Didn't he threaten a limo driver or what not?

    But the guy is tougher than driving home from a Kid Rock concert. He's just too big for welterweight imo,

    Considering he got a fight with CB Dollaway back in the day as a 2nd chance, I would think you're talking about a 4th chance.

    he's a good wrestler and beats up nubs with no wrestling. against real competition he would have faltered.

    That’s terrible news being caught juicing. I was so happy he won the Redemption show. Bellator would pick him up if he’s released from his contract.

    I doubt the UFC will go anywhere near him as he's screwed up their plans for him twice and wasted 2 of their TUF seasons.

    He's done. Maybe Bellator will match him against Paul Daley for the who fucked up their UFC dreams most belt.

    Jesse Taylor is a beast but probably just wasn't prepared for the usada testing program, most likely been juicing his entire career.

    Going from being a journeyman on the Russian circuit to dominating on TUF wasn't a very good look for the UFC anyway.

    He looked jacked during his last season.
    Very amped to fight

    Never belonged in the UFC to start. Perfect example of a man-child, and to think he's raising kids.
