Tim Means says he’s fighting Ricky Rainey at TUF 28 Finale in Las Vegas

A welterweight fight is on tap for the TUF 28 Finale in late November.

Tim Means (27-10-1 MMA, 9-7 UFC) today said he’ll be fighting Ricky Rainey (13-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at the event later this year. The Las Vegas Review-Journal first reported the booking.

The TUF 28 Finale takes place Nov. 30 at The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas. Broadcast plans have not yet been announced, but the card is expected to air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Means will return to action and try to end a two-fight skid. After a win over Alex Garcia in June 2017, he dropped a split decision to Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night 121 in Australia. And in February, he lost a split call to Sergio Moraes in Brazil. Means’ three losses in his past four fights all have been in bouts outside the U.S., but now he’ll be back in Las Vegas, where he had four straight fights prior to that stretch.

Rainey made his promotional debut in April at UFC on FOX 30, but was knocked out in the second round by Muslim Salikhov. That fight came after a seven-fight run for Bellator that saw him go 5-2.

With the addition, the latest TUF 28 Finale card now includes:

  • TBA vs. TBA – “TUF 28” heavyweight tournament final
  • TBA vs. TBA – “TUF 28” women’s featherweight tournament final
  • Bryan Caraway vs. Pedro Munhoz
  • Tim Means vs. Ricky Rainey
