The MMA gods had apparently
destined that Anthony Njokuani
wasn't going to fight Paul Taylor in
England next month. Now Njokuani is
out, himself.

Sources close to the fight on Tuesday
told MMAjunkie.com that the
lightweight has been forced off UFC
Fight Night 30 with an unspecified
injury. Njokuani (16-7 MMA, 3-3 UFC)
was set to meet replacement Al
Iaquinta (6-2-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) on the
card after Taylor pulled out with an
injury, then retired.

Njokuani is one of my favorite fighters. I was looking forward to his fight. He has such crisp technique. His beautiful combos are fun to watch. Hopefully he's not out very long.

I like that fight to Bubbles. Only thing is Jury just got done fighting. So I don't know.

And if Nijem gets the fight, he'll most likely get cut because he's lost 2 by finish and I think Iaquinta would make it 3 in a row.

But on a side not Nijem seems to be that guy when it comes to fighting TUF Season 15 guys. He's had 3 in a row.

I didnt realize it was only a month away

Sam Stout would be a nice litmus test imo
