Jess Liaudin posted a myspace bulletin yesterday announcing that he will face Paul Taylor at UFC 85 in London, England on June 14th. The bout, which will be on the preliminary card of the event, offers the fighters a long-awaited rematch from a 2003 Cage Rage meeting where Liaudin lost to Taylor via decision.
French-born Jess â€œThe Jokerâ€ Liaudin (12-9, 2-1 UFC) competed in a variety of promotions since 2000 before signing a three-fight contract with the UFC in 2007. Liaudin is coming off of a knockout loss to Marcus Davis at UFC 80, but prior to that Liaudin put up back-to-back wins over Dennis Siver and Anthony Torres.
English-native Paul Taylor (8-3-1, 1-2 UFC) also came to the UFC in 2007, winning his first bout in the promotion against Edilberto de Oliveira. He most recently lost a decision to Paul Kelly at UFC 80 and was previously submitted by Marcus Davis at UFC 75.
