By FCF Staff
UFC President Dana White remarked this week that he hoped no freak accidents would impact this Saturday’s UFC on FOX 5 card, however, Tim Means has been forced to withdraw after apparently knocking himself out in the sauna.
White relayed the unfortunate incident via Twitter, and added that Marcus LeVesseur has agreed to step in and fight Abel Trujillo.
The UFC curse strikes again. Tim Means slips in sauna and KO’s himself so now Marcus LeVesseur vs Abel Trujillo
LeVesseur (22-6) was preparing for a December 8th bout with Michael Chiesa, however, the latter was forced to withdraw due to illness.
The 29 year-old lightweight is coming off a split decision win over Carlo Prater in October after being tapped out by Cody McKenzie May.
Trujillo (9-4) was set to make his UFC debut versus Means at the doomed UFC 151 card in September, before the bout was moved to Saturday’s card in Seattle.
