Withdraws after positive COVID test
WelterweightUFC
January 25, 2022
Means announced Sunday via his personal Instagram account that he withdrew from his Feb. 5 fight with Jeremiah Wells at UFC Fight Night 200 due to a positive COVID-19 test.
ANALYSIS
Though Means likely would have cleared all the necessary protocols prior to Feb. 5, he noted that the timing of his positive test would have made it too difficult for him to stay on track with his training in advance of the fight. Expect Means to prepare for a return to the Octagon at some point later in February or during the spring.

Means will no longer take on Jeremiah Wells at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 5, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
No reason has been given for the fight being called off other than Means' opponent, Wells, being moved to UFC 271 on Feb. 12 against a different opponent. It remains to be seen if he will also get a new fight scheduled in the immediate future.
Fighting Jeremiah Wells in February
WelterweightUFC
January 7, 2022
Means will take on Jeremiah Wells in Las Vegas on Feb. 5, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Means is riding a streak of three straight victories, dispatching Laureano Staropoli, Mike Perry and Nicolas Dalby, all by unanimous decision. In Wells, he'll face another fighter who's won three straight fights, though two of those came before he signed his first UFC contract.
Shows high Fight IQ in win
WelterweightUFC
June 27, 2021
Means defeated Nicolas Dalby via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Vegas 30 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Means appears to be evolving in the later stages of his career, as the veteran utilized his wrestling, as well as a high Fight IQ, to get the job done here. Albeit small, Means had a striking advantage in each of the first two frames, in addition to a Round 1 takedown that led to 3:07 worth of control time. Dalby went for broke in Round 3, however, and Means just barely survived the onslaught. Whenever he was hurt, Means was able to initiate a clinch, with the pause in action helping him recover. While Dalby clearly won Round 3, Means still racked up 3:11 worth of control time in the frame. While he didn't finish strong, it's the results that matter, and Means has now put together a three-fight winning streak at the age of 37.
Facing Dalby June 26
WelterweightUFC
June 15, 2021
Means will now take on Nicolas Dalby at the UFC event on June 26, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
With Danny Roberts being off the June 19 card, the UFC acted quick to find an opponent for Means. Sergey Khandozhko had to withdraw from the June 26 card due to injury, so Means will now replace him against Dalby in a welterweight bout. Means will be making his first trip to the Octagon since last November when he defeated Mike Perry.
