I will be Fighting Rick Rainey Nov. 30th in Las Vegas. Cutting weight on another Turkey day. #worthit— tim means (@MeansTim) August 30, 2018
Tim Means is a risk-taker in the cage, but those risks haven’t paid off for the “Dirty Bird” in his last two fights.
Means will get a chance to snap his two-fight losing streak on Nov. 30 against Ricky Rainey at “The Ultimate Fighter 28” Finale at the Palms, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on Thursday.
Means (27-10) dropped his last two fights by split decision against Sergio Moraes and Belal Muhammad, while Rainey was knocked out by Muslim Salikhov in his UFC debut in April. Rainey went 5-2 in Bellator MMA prior to his Ultimate Fighting Championship deal, and will look to take home his first promotional win against Means.
“The Ultimate Fighter” Season 28 Finale also features a bantamweight bout between Bryan Caraway and Pedro Munhoz as well as the Season 28 finalist bouts in both the heavyweight and women’s featherweight tournaments.
