I'll start this one off. This is going to be possible FOTN. Taylor has the some of the best hands in the UFC, concerning boxing, speed and accuracy ... as good as Silva in my opinion. He's also fearless and will engage like a wild man. Problem is ...no ground game. If lights out decides to stand and trade with this guy then he'll live out his nicknam thats for sure. CL needs to take him to the matt to win in my view.

I remember when paul kelly and paul taylor banged for 30 seconds or so in the first round...kelly changed his mind very quickly about standing and trading. That was also one of the best starts i've seen to a fight!

Ramon Dekkers (to me ... the best fighter ever) + Anderson Silva + Renato "Babalu" Sobral + Chuck Lidell + Peter Aerts + Forrest Griffin + Nick Diaz + Roger Huerta + Paul Taylor (get a ground game please) + Lyoto Machida + Gonzaga = LIGHTS OUT!

Lytle takes this one via a guillotine in the 2nd.

I'm pumped for this fight, more then Bisping/Leben even. If they stand, Taylor KO's Lytle....no one stands with Taylor and wins. Ask Paul Kelly or Marcus Davis, they felt the wrath and changed gameplans quickly.

Lytle wins this on the ground though, too much experience and Taylor is known for this being his weakness. Again, ask Kelly/Davis.

They're both fun as hell to watch though but ill predict Taylor by KO round 2.
