Jesse Taylor To Fight Drew Fickett On October 2nd

Sam Caplan at Fivouncesofpain.com has the scoop:

Following his July release from the UFC, former TUF 7 middleweight contestant Jesse Taylor will be returning to action on Oct. 2 during Total Combat 32 at the Syucan Casino just outside of San Diego.

Taylor’s opponent will be another former UFC veteran, Drew Fickett.

Taylor lost a chance to compete against Amir Sadollah in the finals of TUF 7 after he was dismissed from the show following an incident at a Las Vegas hotel and casino. He had earned the right to meet Sadollah after winning a semifinal fight against Tim Credeur and remained in Vegas after the show had wrapped filming to celebrate the win.
