After what will be a layoff of nearly 33 months, England's Paul Taylor will return to the octagon this October – and will be hoping the third time is the charm for a meeting with Anthony Njokuani.

Njokuani should beable to beat Taylor easily with his superior striking and definitive reach advantage.

For Taylor's sake, I really hope he can avoid the injury bug this time. He's had to pull out fights three straight times.

I swear I was just talking about him a week or two ago and we all thought he had just quietly retired. Glad to see him back, win or lose always was fun to watch...for a Brit.

I'm fairly sure this exact match was booked for UFC 138

I'm not a huge fan of Taylor or anything, but the guy brings it, so I'm glad to see him back.

Taylor and Njokuani should be an excellent fight, but I've gotta give the striking edge and therefore the victory to Njokuani, probably by unanimous decision.

Glad Taylor is back but three years out is a long time man

YES!!! War Taylor! I love watching this dude fight! He has some of the most fluid striking I've ever seen in MMA, and he is competing against another very fluid striker. This one ought to be a war. I don't know if I'd say that Njokuani has the better technical striking, but I'd definitely say he has the definitive power advantage. Hopefully both guys stay healthy and we get to see this almost guaranteed FOTN finally go down.
