"TUF 7" cast member Jesse Taylor defeated Drew Fickett via TKO in the main event of Total Combat 32 Friday at the Sycuan Casino and Resort near San Diego, California.
Taylor scored the early takedown and followed with ground and pound strikes for the referee stoppage victory at 1 minute and 42 seconds of the first round. Fickett walked away with a two-inch cut on his forehead.
Taylor was let go by the UFC after his Peruvian necktie submission loss
to C.B. Dollaway at UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin on July 19. Taylor
had fought for Total Combat before, in June 2007, defeating Jorge Ortiz
via TKO in the second round.
