Battle of the Pauls

The UFC has smartened up a bit and is matching two Brits against eachother for the Newcastle show, because God knows whenever they put a UK fighter in the ring with a REAL fighter, they always lose. Haha, just kidding. But seriously now, they do.

So it makes sense that if you put two British fighters against eachother, at least one will win! Unless of course both fighters manage to lose somehow, which I wouldn’t put it past them. Because they’re British. And the British are just really bad at MMA.

But hey, at least this is a sign the UFC is trying to lock in and develop more authentic UK stars instead of relying on Michael ‘Sinking Ship’ Bisping.

Oh yeah, the two fighter’s names are Paul Taylor and Paul Kelly. That’s why it’s a Battle of the Pauls. Me so witty!

    Battle of the Glenns: If Glenn Close and Glenn Ford got married the would’ve both been called Glenn Ford. Awesome. Hi, I’m Glenn Ford. This is my wife, Glenn Ford.
    If these guys got married… they probably wouldn’t be allowed into the octagon.

    We may see the first MMA crowd riot. HURRAY~

  • ajadoniz

    thats why i come here, for the oh-so clever titles. i think the brits r only good at building something up so big that it ultimately falls on its face. they should stick to exporting comedy and hooligans.

    Didn’t Terry Etim beat a quality oponent last time? I Know he lost to Gleison Tibau but he beat someone else betore that. Jess Liaudin is not considered a shit fighter in my eyes.

  • fightlinker

    Liaudin is technically french. And i’m not exactly spouting ‘facts’ here…. although everything i said is TOTALLY TRUE

  • Michaelthebox

    Between Kongo and Liaudlin, the French actually have a better stable of UFC fighters than the Brits. Talk about a slap in the face.

  • Hywel Teague

    It is true, the French have some really high quality fighters, some you’ve never heard of

    Samy Schiavo is one you should all keep an eye out for. That guy is 70kgs of pure explosive power. He has been around for years but never enjoyed a big break. Would love to see him in the UFC.

  • Sweetish Guy

    LMAO. This one made my morning.

    In fairness, British MMA isn’t anywhere near as established as it is in America. We’ve still got press that call it ‘ultimate fighting’. Jess Liaudin is French but he still trains at London Shootfighters unless he’s staying at Team Quest.

    I hate Brits!!! Especially Bisping, that cocky bastard. Too bad Evans is a scrub and couldn’t issue a beat down on him.
    I say the Axe Murder vs Bisping

  • kentyman

    …instead of relying on Michael ‘Sinking Ship’ Bisping.

    I’m confused. Is he related to Evan ‘The Count’ Tanner?
