Jesse Taylor wins 4th straight and KOTC title

For those at work

Former "TUF 7" cast member and one-time UFC fighter Jesse Taylor (10-3) cruised to his fourth-straight victory en route to picking up the Colorado-based King of Champions' middleweight title.

Taylor defeated fellow up-and-comer Chris Camozzi via unanimous decision at Saturday night's "King of Champions: Shockwave 2009" in Denver.

The bout was Taylor's first career title win.

While Taylor is probably most well-known for his drunken Las Vegas tirade that followed the completion of filming of "The Ultimate Fighter 8" - and his subsequent removal from the season's live finale - Taylor has now earned four wins in less than six months outside of the organization.

Prior to Saturday night's victory, Taylor told ( that he felt he had matured since his time in the UFC.

"I have a lot to prove, obviously, to myself, to the fighting world, to friends, everyone," Taylor said. "I learned how people jump on the bandwagon and jump right back off.

"It's a lot of motivation for me, and I think it's awesome that I can fight this much as long as I'm healthy. I think that will just keep making me better and better and better."

Taylor has fought in four different organizations since his release from the UFC following a July 2008 loss to C.B. Dolloway. The 26-year-old said he could be fighting again as early as May, but he hopes to land in a bigger show in the very near future.

"We've kind of been talking to some people right now, some big shows - Japan, Strikeforce, the UFC possibly again," Taylor said. "But the main thing is to keep on winning and keep this pace up. The cool thing about this sport is as long as you're winning, they've got to have you back. So I've just got to keep on winning."
4 fights in less than 6 month wow talking about staying active. Interested in seeing him back up there in a bigger organization.

He should never not have been in the UFC.

He's very active, I wonder where else he'll fight after this.

I'd be more impressed if this was an article about him learning to read.
