VIDEO: TAYLOR TAKES HIS ACT TO STRIKEFORCE

By

on

Chicago Fight Team’s Louis Taylor is well known in Chicagoland as one of the top middleweights, as well as one of the most colorful MMA personalities.  Taylor is taking his game to the next level after signing to fight for Strikeforce.

Louis will fight in this November’s CBS/Strikeforce/M-1 Global Saturday Night Fights event at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates.  The former Eastern Illinois wrestler will face Nate Moore, who trains with Jon Fitch at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, CA.  Moore, just like Taylor, is a former collegiate wrestler.  He is a product of Purdue University, the same school where UFC veteran Fitch went.

Most recently Louis fought at Total Fight Challenge last February and defeated Steve Patterson by knockout.  Before that he defeated former IFL fighter Adam Maciejewski by unanimous decision at the debut show for Monte Cox’s Adrenaline MMA.  Sherdog.com lists his record as 4-0.

Taylor brings a powerful wrestling base and an effective ground and pound style to the fight, but it’s his personality that helps him stand out.  He is known for colorful post-fight celebrations and he also brings showmanship to the ring/cage.

The televised matches for the event were already announced, and the Taylor/Moore fight is not scheduled for prime time viewing.  The featured matches scheduled for the CBS broadcast are: Fedor vs. Rogers, Shields vs. Miller, Mousasi vs. Sokoudju, and Werdum vs. Silva.

Other local fighters who have also come aboard Strikeforce’s roster are C3 welterweight champion Deray Davis, Ultimate Fighter alum Mark Miller, and local BJJ wizard Christian Uflacker.
