In something that will be discussed for quite some time, Tim Means has been forced out of a fight at Saturday’s UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz event after slipping in the sauna. Marcus LeVesseur will now face Abel Trujillo.
“The UFC curse strikes again,” UFC president Dana White posted on Twitter. “Tim Means slips in sauna and KO’s himself.”
Means (18-3-1) was likely beginning the weight-cutting process, as weigh-ins are later this evening. LeVesseur (22-6) was removed from the card earlier in the week after Mike Chiesa was forced out with an illness.
Trujillo (9-4) will be making his UFC debut. The bout will be on the FX-televised prelims.
