For one thing, Rampage has already establish his marketability outside of the UFC. Not to mention that he has way more experience in and out of the cage.

Rampage was already under contract with the UFC... and if they didnt want him, Im sure he could go to Dream for the same, if not better, payday.

that said...

Should Rampage have been kicked outta the UFC, possibly.
Should the UFC have treated Jesse the way that it did, definitely.
You're right! What Rampage did and what Taylor did have no business being compared. Rampage was up on multiple felonies and Taylor wasn't.

The bottom line is, Taylor was thrown out for making the comparison.

Then we have that worthless Junie Browning who still is drawing a UFC paycheck, while Taylor ( a much better fighter by anyone's standards) is out in the cold.

Yea... that goal line is in the same place for every fighter, isn't it?

There are people out there doing a great job making it look like a non-violent sport. Thatís not my job. My job is warfare. Iím over here to (expletive) kill..... Nick Diaz

Uh, Rampage was a LHW titleholder, hes fought in the top tier of his division spanning both the UFC and Pride, and has been the main event in enough cards to be considered a huge PPV/Cash cow.

Page has got options regardless of his criminal record.

Jesse Taylor was/is a nobody. Hes a reality show refugee.

So all of a sudden famous people can get away with murder... no kidding eh? wow, that's a first.
You mean to tell me that famous people get better treatment??? no way

IMHO, he was never tossed out. He simply did not get the job. To get tossed OUT, he had to be IN.

Who ever said 'the goal line is in the same place for ever fighter' is just plain old naive.

You gotta have marketability... Junie Browning mighta been a tool, but he was a numbskull IN the house... ie. acting up for the camera and pissing off all the other guys who have probably signed releases.

Taylor decided to take it out on an innocent limo window and the general public in a casino.

Well Taylor wasn't under contract with the UFC and Rampage was. Plus Rampage wasn't in his right mind as compared to Jesse being drunk. Go figure!
