Paul Taylor weighing in for UFC 89 vs. Chris Lytle.

Paul Taylor is a retired British UFC fighter known for putting on exciting fights, whether he wins or loses.

Taylor, like his former opponent Paul Kelly, has recently dropped from welterweight to lightweight and he was set to make his lightweight debut against John Gunderson. Complications due to scheduling and injuries arose and the fight was forgotten.

Taylor next finally debuted at lightweight against Sam Stout in what was sure to be a Fight of the Night (if not Fight of the Year) slugfest. Stout defeated Taylor via a hard-fought split decision. Taylor next faced Gabe Ruediger, defeating him via second-round knockout.

He was next set to face striker John Makdessi. Unfortunately Makdessi was injured and he was forced to pull out of the bout. Donald Cerrone stepped as his replacement. Taylor was then injured and Charles Oliveira stepped in to replace him. Try to keep up.

After recovering, Taylor was next set to face fellow exciting striker Anthony Njokuani but he was forced to pull out shortly before the bout after being injured in a minor car accident.

After recovering Taylor finally signed again to fight Njokuani. Taylor was AGAIN injured and replaced by Al Iaquinta. Taylor retired this time.
