After initial reports indicated that popular English fighter Paul Taylor would be competing in front of his home crowd in London, England, it appears that he will not be healthy enough to compete at UFC 95. However, newcomers Neil Grove and Stefan Struve will be on the February 21st card.

Grove will be making his UFC debut and holds a  6-1 MMA record. He is a Cage Rage veteran, and what really drew the eyes of UFC management is that all six of his victories have come via (T)KO.

Struve will also be making his Octagon debut and holds an impressive 16-2 record with 12 submission wins to his credit.  He has ended the majority of his fights before the end of the 1stRound.

No opponents have been named for either fighter, but there is a possibility that they could face each other.

Taylor is still dealing with the broken ribs that he suffered in his last bout against Chris Lytle at UFC 89.
