John Makdessi v Paul Taylor in the works for UFC on Versus 5

Quote:
A lightweight matchup between undefeated Canadian John Makdessi and British striker Paul Taylor is in the works for the preliminary card of UFC on Versus 5 on August 14 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, according to Tomas Rios.

Makdessi (9-0) scored a spinning back fist KO of Kyle Watson at UFC 129 in April after successfully making his Octagon debut in September, while Taylor (11-6-1) snapped a two-fight losing skid with a KO of Gabe Ruediger at February’s UFC 126.

The UFC on Versus 5 fight card is headlined by Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle and also features Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson, Stephan Bonnar vs. Karlos Vemola and Amir Sadollah vs. Duane “Bang” Ludwig.

Should be a nice name to add to Makdessi's record...would really like to see him challenged after this fight, though. This isn't boxing, after all.

Makdessi is quite frankly one of the most exciting prospects next to Barboza and my favorite at the moment Oliviera. I do believe he may have to move down to 145 or even 135 due to his physique. He's extremely quick though with those kicks, but when he runs into the Maynards, Guidas, or Sherk who grind you to death it could stifle his offense.

I can see they're slowly building up Makdessi rather than giving him say a Joe Daddy, Tibau, or Griffin (145.)

Hope this kid makes it to the top ten within a year.

1.) Edgar
2.) Maynard
3.) Miller
4.) Pettis
5.) Guida
6.) Siver
7.) G-sot
8.) Ben Henderson
9.) Sherk
10.) Tibau
* J. Daddy
* Donald Cerone (this guy is hugely underated at the moment.)
* Fireball kid
* Mac D.
* Barboza
* Oliviera
* Makdessi

Come to think of it the LW division is stacked.

Agreed. I think they might be giving him time to develop his ground game. Give him a guy with decent wrestling after this to let him test himself more. In his last fight he showed a natural TDD, so he could end up being the kryptonite for all these wrestling heavy LWs...

I don't think Taylor is going to appreciate the beating that he gets in this one. If Makdessi comes in like he did in his last fight it could be another highlight reel KO.

This is a ******* awesome fight. I don't think people are giving Taylor the respect he deserves here, he looked phenomenal in his last fight. He absolutely mauled Ruediger, and looked great doing it. It's always been his grappling that's let him down, his striking has always been top notch. This is going to be a stand up war, and has the potential to be fight of the year. Makdessi will probably take it, but I'll be backing Taylor!
