    Report: John Makdessi vs. Paul Taylor Planned for UFC on Versus 5 - Bloody Elbow

    A lightweight bout featuring two of the UFC's most talented strikers should prove to be quite an exciting one, when John Makdessi meets Paul Taylor at UFC on Versus 5 in Milwaukee on August 14th. Tomas Rios reports on Twitter that the bout has been verbally agreed to and is awaiting Taylor's signature to make it official:

    Some news for you since you all put up with me, John Makdessi vs. Paul Taylor. UFC Live 5. Waiting on Taylor to sign off.

    Both men are coming off highlight-reel KO wins, with Makdessi putting Kyle Watson away via spinning backfist at UFC 129, while Taylor put Gabe Ruediger to sleep with a head kick at UFC 126. Although it doesn't appear that this fight will make the Versus main card, it should be a front-runner to be aired via Facebook if the UFC decides to go that route with the prelims, as they have lately. Taylor is still seeking his first set of consecutive wins in the UFC, while Makdessi remains undefeated, but Taylor has certainly faced tougher competition in his UFC run (Chris Lytle, Sam Stout, John Hathaway, Marcus Davis).

    Wicked. Makdessi has been a beast. His fight against Pat Audinwood was amazing. And his last fight was great too.

    Looking forward to this one. Don't know if this is going to be a good night for Taylor. I don't think he will be able to find his range. Makdessi has been great with keeping fighters at distance and picking the apart.
