UFC welterweight veteran Tim Means has the following assignment.

Promotion announced On Monday, that Means (31-12-1, 1 NC) will face Danny Roberts (17-5) at the June 19 UFC APEX event in Las Vegas. Funds reported the news myself last week.

Means will make his 24th jump into the Octagon when he faces Roberts, and holds a 13-9 (1 NC) record in the UFC. The Dirty Bird has won two bouts in a row and three of the last four. He competed three times in 2020, losing submission to Daniel Rodriguez and then rebounding in a row with victories over Laureano Staropoli and Mike Perry.

England’s Roberts also wins, although he hasn’t competed for 18 months after seeing a pair of fights with Nicholas Dalby fail in 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak canceling their first antics and an injury that forced Roberts out of second. In his last fight at UFC Moscow in November 2019, Roberts knocked out Zelim Imadayev in the second round to stop a skid from two fights. His UFC record is 6-4.

The June 19 UFC card is expected to be headlined by a bout between featherweight rivals Jang Sung Jung and Deng Ige.
