Lightweights Paul Taylor and Anthony Njokuani were supposed to square off last November at UFC 138 in England, but Taylor was forced out just days before the event after suffering minor injuries in a car accident.

Now, Taylor is readying to return in July at UFC on Fuel 4, and according to a report from Fighter's Only, he'll get that matchup with Njokuani once more.

Due to that injury in November, Taylor hasn't been seen in the Octagon since a win over Gabe Ruediger at UFC 126 in February of 2011.

Njokuani, meanwhile, has fought four times in the UFC during the stretch that Taylor's been out. He's gone 2-2 in that stretch, with all four fights going to decision. Most recently, he defeated John Makdessi last Saturday night at UFC 145 in Atlanta.

UFC on Fuel 4 takes place on July 11, and will be headlined by the middleweight bout between Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman.

Penick's Analysis: This is as solid a fight as it was for the November card. Taylor's not been anything overtly special in his UFC run, and indeed only holds a 4-5 record in nine fights in the Octagon. Still, he's had a number of really exciting fights, and should hopefully fare much better on the entertainment front against Njokuani than Makdessi did last weekend.
