Means vs. Garcia, Horcher vs. Powell Booked for UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma City

By Tristen Critchfield May 16, 2017

A pair of bouts have been added to the UFC Fight Night 112 bill, as Tim Means will face Alex Garcia at welterweight and Darrell Horcher will face Devin Powell at lightweight.

The Las Vegas-based promotion recently confirmed the two bouts. UFC Fight Night 112 takes place at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City on June 25 and is headlined by a 155-pound tilt between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee. The card will air on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

After their first meeting resulted in a controversial no contest due an illegal knee, Means was submitted by Alex Oliveira in a rematch at UFC Fight Night 106 on March 11. Means had won six of his last seven Octagon appearances prior to his two bouts against Oliveira.

Garcia, meanwhile, is coming off a 1-1 campaign in 2016 that included a second-round TKO loss to Sean Strickland at UFC Fight Night 83 and a first-round knockout of Mike Pyle at UFC 207. The Tristar Gym representative is 4-2 during is promotional tenure and 14-3 as a professional overall.

Horcher had a rough introduction to the Octagon, as he suffered a second-round TKO loss to top contender Khabib Nurmagomedov in a short-notice bout at UFC on Fox 19. That defeat snapped a five-fight winning streak under the Cage Fury Fighting Championships banner for “The Saint.”

Powell made his first promotional foray at UFC Fight Night 103, where he suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Drakkar Klose on Jan. 15. That snapped a six-fight winning streak for Powell, who owns an 8-2 career mark.
