MMAWeekly.com brought word of the pending match-up earlier today.
Njokuani was last in action just this past July 2 in Las Vegas, battering and beating up England's own Andre Winner in one of the better performances of "The Assassin's" career.
Which is good, because he had previously lost three of his last four fights.
No matter, though, as the exciting dynamic striking the young gun brings to the table is always good for a show and that's obviously the thought process for fight fans overseas in a match-up against fellow knockout artist Paul Taylor.
Injuries have forced Taylor to work a light schedule the past few years, as the British banger has just three fights since Nov. 2009.
He's being given every chance to repeat that performance, on his home turf no less, in a perfect style match-up against Njokuani.
UFC 138 was only recently announced for the promotion's sole trip to the United Kingdom this year. Headlining the card will be the very first main event non-title five-round fight with a match-up pitting middleweight title hopefuls Chris Leben vs. Mark Munoz.
Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more on this fight card as it comes in.
