Two New Bouts Announced for UFC Fight Night 125 in Belem

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 5, 2018

The UFC Fight Night 125 lineup appears to be nearly complete with the addition of two new contests.

The promotion announced Friday that Tim Means will face Sergio Moraes at welterweight, while Douglas Silva de Andrade will meet Marlon Vera at bantamweight on Feb. 3 at Mangueirinho Gymnasium in Belem, Brazil. UFC Fight Night 125 is headlined by a middleweight duel between Lyoto Machida and Eryk Anders and will be televised on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Means went 1-2 during his 2017 campaign, including a split-decision loss to Belal Muhammad in his last appearance at UFC Fight Night 121. The 35-year-old Moraes went 6-0-1 in the Octagon from October 2012 to March 2017 before suffering a first-round knockout loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC Fight Night 116.

Andrade fell to 24-2 as a professional following a submission loss to Rob Font at UFC 213, the Brazilian’s only appearance of 2017. Vera had a three-fight winning streak halted in his most recent outing, as he dropped a three-round verdict against John Lineker at UFC Fight Night 119.
