I've said before that I cannot stand the kind of fighter Jesse Taylor is, both as a fan and as a former fighter myself. But to answer your question, of course he does. He fought his way in, it wasn't any kind of folly or lay low so they don't call my name tricks, he should be there.
If your question had been, "do you think Jesse is the best man for the finale show?" Then the answer would be an overwhelming no.
