Tim Means will take on “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3” finalist Marcio Alexandre Jr. at UFC Fight Night “Machida vs. Dollaway” on Dec. 20.
Ultimate Fighting Championship officials announced the pairing on Friday. The event takes place at Jose Correa Arena in Barueri, Brazil, and features a middleweight main event pitting Lyoto Machida against C.B. Dollaway.
Means will continue to put as much distance as possible between himself and losing fights, as he looks to build off the momentum he grabbed from defeating Hernani Perpetuo at UFC on Fox 12. Prior to the win, “The Dirty Bird” had dropped a decision to Neil Magny. Of his 21 professional wins, Means has achieved 15 by knockout or technical knockout.
Two fighters by the name of “Lyoto” will compete on the card, as Alexandre Jr. -- who’s nickname is “Lyoto” -- will attempt to win his first fight under the UFC banner. Aside from his technical submission loss to Warlly Alves at UFC Fight Night “Miocic vs. Maldonado,” the 25-year-old had not been defeated, finishing all 12 of his wins.
