Ray Sefo Critical of Jesse Taylor's Performance at WSOF 7
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.08.2013

WSOF President Ray Sefo recently discussed middleweight fighter Jesse Taylor's performance against Elvis Mutapcic in their title eliminator bout at WSOF 7. Taylor defeated Mutapcic over a three-round decision using a wrestling-heavy strategy during their bout.

According to Sefo, Taylor will now face David Branch sometime in 2014 for the inaugural WSOF middleweight title, likely in March. Below are some highlights:

Sefo on Taylor's performance: "Jesse is a wrestler, but at the same time, it's not a wrestling match. I personally want guys who can wrestle, can submit and can (fight) standup. I understand that he's got to use his strength, but you've also got to be exciting if you want to be champion."

Sefo critiquing Taylor's wrestling strategy: "If you want to be champion, you've got to be an exciting champion because the fans aren't going to want to see a champion that is just going to sit around and do nothing or just wrestle the whole time. It's not a wrestling match, it's not a jiu-jitsu match, it's not a kickboxing match it's mixed martial arts. Hopefully Jesse understands that, as well as all of the MMA fighters out there."

Sefo on fighters having to evolve their game: "The game continues to evolve, so you, as a fighter, you've got to evolve with it. So we'll see how Jesse performs next time."
