Tim Means out of UFC on Fox 5 after slipping in sauna

This is probably the strangest injury to happen to anybody but after a freak sauna incident, Tim Means has been removed from the UFC on Fox 5 card.

Means was set to face Abel Truijillo, but now Trujillo will face Marcus LeVasseur after LeVasseur’s opponent, Michael Chiesa, pulled out of their fight during the week.

With UFC on Fox 5 going down tomorrow night, the UFC will now field 11 fights. UFC on Fox 5 takes place in Seattle at the Key Arena and is headlined by the UFC lightweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz.
