When the UFC wants to make a matchup, they usually can't be swayed from that decision. If a fighter gets hurt or something goes wrong, they generally try to put the two fighters again at some point in the future. That's the case here, as British fighter Paul Taylor will meet Anthony Njokuani at UFC on Fuel 4 in July. Fighters Only has it:

Anthony Njokuani is matched with Paul Taylor for UFC on FUEL 4.

The Nigerian-American lightweight kickboxer faces his British counterpart on the televised portion of the card, according to Fighters Only sources.

Paperwork is in place to make the bout official.

The two were originally scheduled to face off at UFC 138, but Taylor was hurt in a car accident and was forced to withdraw. Taylor (11-6-1, 1 NC) hasn't stepped into the octagon in over fourteen months due to injuries. His last bout was a TKO win over Gabe Ruediger at UFC 126. Njokuani (15-6, 1 NC) is coming off a big win over John Makdessi last weekend at UFC 145.
