Taylor booted from 'The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale'

Jesse Taylor was kicked out of the finale -- and the UFC -- during the final episode of "The Ultimate Fighter 7" Wednesday night.

Taylor secured a spot in the finals by winning all three of his bouts in the competition, but poor conduct ridded him of what he referred to as the biggest opportunity of his life.

Extending his stay in Las Vegas following the conclusion of the tapings, Taylor was caught on camera kicking out a window of a limo and was found to have caused a disturbance inside a hotel. UFC President Dana White elaborated on Taylor's antics by saying the rowdy middleweight was "terrorizing women" and claiming to be an Ultimate Fighter when approached by security.

White called Taylor mentally and emotionally unready to become a UFC fighter and cut the 25-year-old middleweight from the organization's roster.

To fill Taylor's spot against Amir Sadollah, who advanced with an armbar win over C.B. Dollaway, the UFC brought back the two losing semifinalists, Dollaway and Tim Credeur for a bonus bout. Dollaway emerged the winner by unanimous decision to earn the rematch with Sadollah in the finals on Saturday, June 21.
