Tim Means will be cleared to return to action as soon as this summer after accepting a six-month suspension by the USADA.
Means tested positive for a tainted supplement earlier this year ahead of his planned fight with Donald Cerrone. He was suspended retroactive to February 3 for six months.
The 32-year-old Means (25-7-1) had his hearing moved up earlier this week with the USADA. He has gone 8-4 over multiple stints with the UFC, including a 5-1 mark in his last six.
Means faced a two-year suspension as a first time offender, but the suspension was reduced because of the tainted supplement found to be the reason for the failed test.
I have something to say……………..Hello!
