It’s right back to action for Nigeria-born Anthony Njokuani (15-6, 1 NC), who’s been matched up against Paul Taylor (11-6-1, 1 NC) on the UFC on FUEL 4 fight card.
FightersOnly first reported the matchup.
Njokuani is fresh off of a unanimous decision victory over John Makdessi, which took place at UFC 145 last weekend. The win bounced the 32-year-old back from a split decision defeat to Danny Castillo dating back to UFC 141. A loss to Edson Barboza and a win over Andre Winner set Njokuani’s UFC record to 2-2; he is 3-4 in his last seven.
British fighter Paul Taylor also rebounded from a loss in his last outing by knocking out Gabe Ruediger at UFC 126. In his nine-fight run with the UFC, Taylor has gone 4-5.
Njokuani and Taylor were scheduled to meet at UFC 138 last November, but the bout was cancelled when Taylor was involved in a minor traffic accident and suffered whiplash.
UFC on FUEL 4 is rumored to take place on July 11 in San Jose, California.
