UFC Fighters React To Jesse Taylor Finally Getting That TUF Trophy In Friday’s Co-Main Event

The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption truly lived up to its name.

On Friday, Jesse Taylor won the 25th season of The Ultimate Fighter.

In 2008, Taylor competed on the seventh season of TUF and made it to the semifinals. However, he was kicked off the show due to his actions at a casino after the show had finished filming.

Taylor was given one fight in the UFC but was released after he lost his first UFC fight to CB Dollaway.

Now, nine years later, Taylor has received a second opportunity in the UFC and is making the most out of it.

Tayor defeated Dhiego Lima to win the TUF tournament. He dominated Lima in the first round of their fight. In the second round, Taylor took only seconds to lock in a rear-naked choke and finished the fight.

Many fighters watched Taylor win the latest season of TUF and were ecstatic about him earning $290,000. Below, you can see how fighters reacted on Twitter to the newest Ultimate Fighter champion.
