New Mexico produces another UFC fighter as ‘King of the Cage’ champion Tim Means will step in on short notice to face Bernardo Magalhaes at UFC on Fuel 1 in Nebraska.
The UFC made the fight official this week.
Tim ‘Dirty Bird’ Means comes to the UFC with an impressive 16-3-1 record, and a two weight class champion in King of the Cage.

A fierce striker by trade, Means comes to the UFC on a seven fight win streak and also holds a win over current Strikeforce fighter Bobby Green.
