Donald Cerrone Jumping to 170 For Bout With Tim Means
By FCF Staff
Donald Cerrone clearly wasn’t about to take an extended break after being stopped by lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos last month, as the fighter has agreed to move up to welterweight and face Tim Means.
The bout will headline the February 21st UFC Fight Night 82 card, which will be hosted by Pittsburgh’s Consol Center.
Cerrone (28-7) has rattled off 8 straight wins prior to facing dos Anjos, who is the only man to defeat “Cowboy” since 2011. RDA also decisioned Cerrone in 2013.
Means (25-7-1) is coming off a highlight reel, knockout win over John Howard last month, and the former lightweight has gone 4-1 in his last 5 bouts. Means only loss during that time came against welterweight contender Matt Brown.
