The UFC has announced that Tim Means has been pulled from its February 21st event, due to a potential anti-doping violation, and the welterweight has responded to the news.

In a statement the promotion recently released, the promotion confirmed that Means has been flagged for a possible violation, due to an out-of-competition test. The statement also reported:

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. However, because Means was scheduled to compete against Donald Cerrone on February 21 in Pittsburgh, there is insufficient time for a full review and proper promotion before the scheduled bout. As a result, UFC will announce shortly a replacement opponent for Cerrone on the UFC Fight Night card in Pittsburgh.

Following the announcement, the following tweets appeared on Means’ Twitter account:

The 31 year-old Means is coming off a KO win over John Howard and is 4-1 in his last 5 fights.
