Taylor had a huge outburst during the filming of the Ultimate Fighter 7, where he terrorized staff and customers at a Palace Casino and caused damage to a limousine. Resulting from this, Taylor was dropped from the show and told to sort himself out, before he would be allowed another chance.
Taylor fought at the last Fight Night, losing to C.B. Dollaway. He had spoken to Dana White and told him he was back on track and had started to attend AA meetings. There has since been doubts raised to Dana regarding these claims, and how much he has actually changed.
Taylor then was interviewed for a radio station and made the following comment Oh yeah, it's a big double standard, 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."
The UFC have now confirmed that they have dropped Taylor from their roster.
