Paul Taylor in Car Crash, Bout with Njokuani Scratched from UFC 138

Paul Taylor was involved in a car accident and that he’s sustained minor injuries, although enough to rule him out of his fight this coming weekend in Birmingham, England, the main card fight between Taylor and Anthony Njokuani has been scratched from the event altogether.

The preliminary card fight between Cyrille Diabate and Anthony Perosh has been moved to the main card to replace it.

Njokuani, speaking via MMAWeekly, said:

“I was very excited for the opportunity to fight in the UK. Unfortunately a situation outside of our control has caused the bout to be scrapped. I am sure Paul was excited to fight on his own soil so I feel for him as well.”
