Taylor took Creduer, a jiu jitsu black belt, down often throughout the lopsided three round bout and never provided him an opening he could exploit to finish the fight, using superior positioning and peppering punches and elbows to dominate his opponent. After three one-sided rounds the judges rendered scores of 30-27, 30-26, and 30-26, declaring Taylor the unanimous decision winner.
With his spot in the finale now secure, Taylor will face the winner of next week’s bout between CB Dollaway and Amir Sadollah on June 21st at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale in Las Vegas.
Also last night, in the traditional coaches challenge Forrest Griffin and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson went head-to-head in a game of H.O.R.S.E. with $10,000 on the line for the winning coach as well as $2,000 for each of his fighters. Griffin, a former basketball player, dominated Jackson, punctuating the trouncing with a competition-ending dunk.
As the episode concludes a preview of next week’s final episode is shown and it promises to be the “most shocking” ending in the history of the reality series. A video is shown to UFC President Dana White and both coaches that shows the window of a limosine being broken out. “He’s out of the finale and out of the UFC,” said White.
