Tim Means Thanks UFC for Paying Win Bonus Following Contentious Loss to Sergio Moraes
By: Tristen Critchfield Mar 6, 2018
It appears that justice was served for Tim Means -- at least
A little more than a month after “The Dirty Bird” dropped a split
decision to Sergio Moraes at UFC Fight Night 125 in Belem, Brazil,
the New Mexico-based welterweight says the Las Vegas-based
promotion has paid him a win bonus for the bout. Salary figures
from the event were not disclosed.
“Thank you [UFC] and [Dana White} for sending me my win bonus,”
According to the official scorecards, judges Phillipe Iorio and
Tony Weeks saw the fight 29-28 in favor of Moraes, while Marcos
Rosales submitted a 29-28 tally for Means. That wasn’t necessarily
the popular opinion: 13 of the 14 unofficial media scorecards
tracked by MMADecisions.com
had Means winning.
Means has tasted victory just once in his last five Octagon
appearances, a three-round verdict over Alex Garcia at UFC Fight
Night 112. The FIT-NHB representative is 9-7 with one no contest
during his tenure with the promotion.
