Welterweights Tim “The Dirty Bird” Means & Niko “The Hybrid” Price are set for March encounter in Kansas.
It took Means just 78 seconds to dispatch of Ricky Rainey this past November at the TUF 28 Finale. The win got the former 3-division KOTC champion, back in the win column after, razor thin, split decision losses to Belal Muhammad & Sergio Moraes. The performance also open eyes as Means, who’s normally content to exchange on the feet, took Rainey to the ground overwhelming the Tar Heel with brutal ground & pound not normally associated with “The Dirty Bird”.
Price is a talented finisher with 11 of his 12 wins by stoppage. Last July the Floridian score a one of a kind knock out, turning of Randy Brown’s light with hammer-fists from the bottom position. “The Hybrid” looks to rebound from a UFC 228 knock out loss to Abdul Razak Alhassan.
