UFC has pulled Tim Means for the Feb. 21 event’s headliner due to a potential Anti-Doping policy violation.
The UFC released a statement on Wednesday revealing that Means was flagged as a result of an out-of-competition test. As usual, USADA “will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case.”
Means was scheduled to face Donald Cerrone in a welterweight bout at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh in the main event of a card to be televised on Fox Sports 1. According to the statement, the UFC will announce a replacement opponent for Cerrone “shortly.”
Based out of FIT-NHB in Albuquerque, N.M., Means has won five of his last six bouts in the Octagon. Most recently, “The Dirty Bird” knocked out John Howard 21 seconds into round two of their matchup at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas on Dec. 10.
