Talyor injured, out of UFC 138 bout with Njokuani


Another change has been made to this weekend’s UFC 138 card due to an injury.

The UK’s Paul Taylor has reportedly suffered whiplash in a car accident that took place yesterday and as a result has been forced out of his scheduled bout with Anthony Njokuani.

With just a few days left until fight night, the UFC has opted to not seek a replacement opponent for Njokuani and instead will move the Anthony Perosh vs. Cyrille Diabate to the televised portion of the evening’s card.

“UFC 138: Munoz vs. Leben” goes down at the LG Arena at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham England. The Spike TV card will feature a main event between middleweights, Mark Munoz and Chris Leben in the UFC’s first ever 5-round non-title fight.

    Could be a blessing in Disguise for Taylor, i think Njokuani is starting to get on a roll right now, a roll that will land him a title shot late next year. i heard he’s been working his ground game more than his stand up, so with his awesome stand up and hopefully basic ground game, which can help you survive wreslters, maybe not win but you won’t get dominated and TKO’d or Submitted…hopefully. But who doesnt want to see him and Barboza again??? i hope they put that rematch together again soon.
