Report: Anthony Njokuani vs. Paul Taylor in the Works for UFC 138

via i52.tinypic.com

Yet another match-up is being planned for the UFC 138 card in Birmingham, England, with this one featuring two of the lightweight division's most dynamic strikers. MMA Junkie reports that Anthony Njokuani and Paul Taylor have been offered a fight on the November 5th card, with at least one of them already giving a verbal agreement.

Njokuani is coming off an impressive victory over Andre Winner at UFC 132 where he dominated the Brit, whose loss ended up getting him cut from the UFC. Taylor, the team Kaobon fighter who trains alongside Terry Etim, Paul Sass, and Mark Scanlon, was scheduled to fight next month at UFC on Versus 5 against Donald Cerrone, but suffered an injury that forced Charles Oliveira to step in and replace him, while he got re-scheduled for the November card in his native England.

Win Andre Winner (unam. decision) - UFC 132
Loss Edson Barboza (unam. decision) - UFC 128
Win Edward Faaloloto (TKO-elbow) - WEC 52
