UFC 184: Tim Means “Business” With Decisive Victory

ufc 184

Tim Means found his groove early at UFC 184, finishing off Ultimate Fighter finalist Dhiego Lima for his 23rd career victory.

Means (23-6-1) earned his third straight victory and fifth in the last six bouts. He’s 4-3 over two stints with the UFC.

After connecting with a sharp elbow that dropped Lima, Means remained patient. Instead of rushing in and getting caught, he deliberately picked Lima apart before putting together a heavy dose of lefts and rights to end it.

“I’ve been letting guys get away and that’s been eating at me,” Means said. “If you look at my record, I finish fights. I feel good at 170 pounds and I have the best elbows in the division.”

Means had earned back-to-back decisions over Marcio Alexandre and Hernani Perpetuo after a decision loss to Neil Magny in his UFC return in 2014. He picked up a pair of victories in Legacy FC – both via finish – to earn another shot with the promotion.
