Tim Means has suffered an accident while cutting weight, knocking him out of a fight with Abel Trujillo at UFC on Fox 5 Saturday night.

“The UFC curse strikes again,” UFC president Dana White posted on Twitter. “Tim Means slips in sauna and KO’s himself so now Marcus LeVesseur vs Abel Trujillo.”

The bout will be part of the FX prelims.

LeVesseur (22-6) was originally set to face Mike Chiesa, but he was forced out after coming down with an illness. Trujillo (9-4) will be making his UFC debut.
