    well to tell the truth i'm in between all this..
    cuz this was already out of the house and after the show was over and the only reason he was kicked out was because it was at the fertita's casino..
    if he was back home and did that to one of the local clubs or something nothing would have probably happened and he would still be in the finale.
    i always thought he was talented and knew that unlike the others that kicked out he would be back and i'm sure he will.
    hmm i just read that he might fight on the anderson vs. irvin card so thats good. i guess Dana had the same thought as me.
    Jesse is huge and talented, if he works on his stand up than GOD DAMN!

    No, I'm not lying lol.. But I also saw several others do the same thing for that handicapped girl, including Bruce Buffer and Mike Dolce. But, in my days, as a WWE fan, anyone would know that the wrestlers do that all the time as well.

    Honestly, I'd be the same way if I was a pro fighter. I mean, personally, I'd be gracious to any fan, but when you do something physical for a living, you can't help but be sympathetic to someone in a wheelchair who can't even walk. They probably live vicariously through you, and honestly, how can you not be appreciative of a fan like that? And honestly, this girl seemed like a super nice person so it was nice to see the guys treat her so nicely!

    you're probably not lying, and i doubt you'd have any reason too, but the fact that you pointed out he was helping a handicapped person just made me go "PR STUNT!". haha, don't know why.

    I think he deserves to get at least one chance to fight in the UFC again. However, he should NOT be put in any headlining match. He should be put into a prelim, and if he performs well, THEN maybe he can work his way up.

    1st .... quit drinking. It seems like he is one of those guys that can't just have a few drinks and hang. Every time he drinks he has to get bombed. That's going to keep getting him in trouble.

    2nd .... counseling. Realize your issues and learn ways to cope with them.

    That's exactly the way I see it too. This also makes it 3 crimes he's broke.

    It''s pretty clear to me that he'll still get a chance. Dana already eluded to that. Though I highly doubt JT was bright enough to pick it up I'm sure someone will fill him in.

    I also think he could be a great fighter. You don't have to be superior in linguistics to be a fighter? Know what I mean? There are some might dumb people in the boxing world and I'm sure there are plenty in MMA. They're good at learning that, but are terrible in normal every day life.

    Once this kid grows up he'll stop being so immature I'm betting. He's not like Nick Diaz who's got this HORRIBLE chip on his shoulder. It just seems like he's a dumb kid trying to appear smart. At least that's how I see it.

    I think he should have to fight Anderson Silva as punishment.

    I think they should put him on the opener of the finale as punishment, but still let him fight. He could use this as a stepping stone to fight the winner of CB and Amir and gain him some more fame, and maybe a little bit of credibility, as much as you can give a TUF alumnus.

    With that being said, I do think that CB vs Amir is going to be a letdown. CB's style isn't all there, so I hope Amir, the more exciting of the two, can take it home again.

    He seems as dumb as toast to begin with, and also has a poor attitude.

    He can get another chance, but I doubt he'll be able to accomplish anything with it.
