Tim Means Welcomes Abel Trujillo at UFC 151


Tim MeansAuthentic Sports Management on Wednesday announced that another of its fighters, Abel Trujillo, signed on with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Now, just a few hours later, Trujillo has an opponent and a date. He’ll square off in his Octagon debut with Tim Means at UFC 151 on Sept. 1 in Las Vegas.

MMAWeekly.com sources late Wednesday evening confirmed the fight, first reported by MMAJunkie.com.

Trujillo (9-4) made his way to the Octagon on the back of a four-fight winning streak, but he’s got no easy task before him in his debut.

Means (18-3), a former King of the Cage champion, now has back-to-back victories under his belt in the UFC, and has a streak of his own going, although his is to the tune of nine consecutive victories.

UFC 151 features a main event title bout between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and challenger Dan Henderson.

(Editor’s Note: We originally reported the event for this fight as UFC on FX 5 by mistake. It has been corrected to UFC 151.)
