I'm sorry but this is just a joke. Gee, I wonder how many times ANY fighter has gotten completely trashed and "terrorized" women. Hmm, a drunk guy trying to get laid, yeah, real unclassy to the sport.
I probably couldn't even count the amount of times on my fingers and toes how many times a fighter has gotten drunk and pulled that "I'm a UFC fighter!" bullshit to some kind of cop/security. As far as the window, big freaking deal man. 16 guys get trashed and completely WRECK a house, not make it messy, but WRECK it. Destroy the walls, staircase, furniture and that's not inappropriate? Gee why don't you kick all the fighters off the show for inappropriate behavior.
I'm really feeling bad for Jesse right now. Sure he may have acted like a jackass but this is something that you can't cound as "inexcusable". This is the same show that had Chris Leben on camera claiming how he wanted to kill people and "cripple Josh Koscheck", same show that had Jeremy May claiming he was going to come to everyones house and shoot them, but a guy gets too trashed and harasses some chicks?
I sincerely think the UFC wanted this show to end on that kind of note, like a real big "shocker", even if I believe this banishment was completely not necessary. If anything this was just a poor reason to try and bring the hype machine CB Dalloway back into the competition after Amir almost snapped his arm in half.
Seriously, there has been some real bad decisions on TUF, but Jesse Taylor just got the worst shafting I have ever seen on the show, what shit.
I have to disagree, my friend.
What happens on the show between fighters is not the same as what goes on in the real world. It's ok (in the UFC's mind) for the fighters to break stuff and talk shit, threaten other fighters, because the UFC owns the property they're destroying and the UFC tells them they can go do and say whatever as long as they don't actually fight in the house.
Jesse got wasted, walked into a casino owned by the FERTITTA BROTHERS, and apparently causes a serious disturbance and caps it off by pulling out the worst douche bag line ever, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!?" And caps it off by associating himself with the UFC. The truth is neither you nor I know what Jesse did to "terrorize" women in the casino, but because the Fertitta's run the casino, Dana should know exactly what happened. But if I went to a property owned by my bosses and made my company look like dog crap, I GUARANTEE you I would be gone.
I feel bad that Jesse lost his big shot but he brought this on himself.
As for other fighters with legal troubles, I agree the UFC should take a much harder stance against offenders.
