There's an interesting lightweight match-up brewing between undefeated 155-pound phenom John Makdessi and Paul Taylor, who are likely to collide at the upcoming UFC on Versus 5 event, which is scheduled for the Bradley Center on Aug. 14, 2011, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Makdessi (9-0) is fresh off a spectacular spinning back fist knockout over Kyle Watson at UFC 129: "St. Pierre vs. Shields" back on April 29. The win was his second straight as a Zuffa employee, having first chopped down Pat Audinwood at UFC 124: "St. Pierre vs. Koscheck" last December.
Standing in his way is the "Relentless" Paul Taylor (11-6-1), who is coming off a highlight reel knockout of his own. The hard-hitting Brit dimmed the lights for Gabe Reudiger with a punishing head kick back at UFC 126: "Silva vs. Belfort" earlier this year.
The win over "Godzilla" snapped Taylor's two fight losing streak.
In addition, surging lightweight contenders Jim Miller and Ben Henderson will square off in a bout that may very well go a long way in determining the next number one contender to the 155-pound title.
