Three times Anthony Njokuani and Paul Taylor have been scheduled to fight. Three times the fight has not happened.

UFC officials today announced that Al Iaquinta (6-2-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will replace an injured Paul Taylor (11-6 MMA, 4-5 UFC), who was scheduled to fight Njokuani (16-7 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 30. The new matchup stays on the same card, which takes place Oct. 26 at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Approximately as good a fight. Approximately as winnable for Njokuani.

Are you serious? Damn. This is it for Taylor. He hasn't fought since 2011 and the UFC released him before setting him up against Njokuani.

Seeing lots of tweets saying Taylor has announced his retirement.

Definitely an inferior fight. Like fko said and what pf cited, this is it for taylor. He just can't stay healthy enough to fight. He had some amazing battles in his day.
