Tim Means will meet Dhiego Lima in a welterweight contest at UFC 184.

Promotion officials announced the welterweight pairing on Friday. UFC 184 takes place at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 28 and is headlined by a middleweight title showdown between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort. Women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will defend her crown against Cat Zingano in the evening’s co-main event.

Anchored at FIT-NHB in Albuquerque, N.M., Means enters the bout on a two-fight winning streak. “The Dirty Bird” scored a unanimous verdict over Hernani Perpetuo at UFC on Fox 12 in July before capturing a split-decision triumph against Marcio Alexandre Jr. on Dec. 20.

Lima, the younger brother of Bellator 170-pound king Douglas Lima, rebounded from a first-round knockout loss to Eddie Gordan in his Octagon debut at the “TUF 19” finale to take a decision from Jorge Antonio Cezario de Oliveira at UFC Fight Night “Shogun vs. St. Preux” this past November.
