Another contest has been added to the UFC
151 fight bill, promotion officials announced Wednesday, as
Means will square off with Octagon newcomer Abel
Trujillo at the Sept. 1 event.
UFC 151 takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas
and is headlined by a light heavyweight title collision between
reigning champion Jon Jones and
former Strikeforce king Dan
Henderson. The evening's main draw airs live on pay-per-view
and also features a welterweight showdown between contenders
Koscheck and Jake
Means, 28, performed impressively in his last outing, stopping
Salas with strikes in just 66 seconds at
UFC on FX 3. The June 8 victory marked the ninth consecutive
win for “The Dirty Bird,” who is now 2-0 in his Octagon career.
Standing 6-feet-2, Means owns 13 of his 18 career victories by way
of knockout and has gone to a judges' decision just twice in his
eight years as a pro.
Also 28, Trujillo joins the
UFC riding a four-fight winning streak. Fighting out of Des
Moines, Iowa, Trujillo last competed on June 30, taking a unanimous
decision from former Bellator talent Frank
Carrillo. The lightweight has already competed three times in
2012, topping Ken Jackson
in January and James Edson
Berto in April before outpointing Carrillo.
