Winning Fight of the Night bonuses on three occasions, Taylor was known for his exciting striking style and was a very popular fighter among UFC fans.
Originally from Walsall, England, Taylor also trained in Liverpool. He made his UFC debut in 2007 in Manchester at UFC 70 where he defeated Edilberto Crocota via TKO in a welterweight bout. He moved to the lightweight division in 2010.
We at WHOA! TV would like to wish Paul all the best and hope to see him continue in MMA in some capacity away from the Octagon.
