A promising welterweight scrap is set for UFC Wichita, as Tim Means will take on Niko Price at the event in early March.
The UFC’s debut in Wichita, Kansas has added some welterweight action. Following multiple reports late Friday, Tim Means confirmed that he will be fighting Niko Price at the event. Means revealed the news on his official Twitter account. UFC Wichita, numerically UFC Fight Night 146, is headlined by a heavyweight tilt between Junior Dos Santos and Derrick Lewis.

Also known as ‘The Dirty Bird,’ Means (28–10–1 (1)) has long been a fan favorite for his scrappy style. He’ll enter the fight against Price following a win over Ricky Rainey at the TUF 28 Finale. That TKO victory snapped a two fight skid for Means, with both losses coming by split decision.
Opposing Means at the UFC Wichita card will be Niko Price (12–2 (1)). Price was last seen being knocked out at UFC 228 by Abdul Razak Alhassan. Prior to that, he’d won two straight, over George Sullivan and Randy Brown. Both of those victories were stoppages, a submission over Sullivan and a knockout of Brown.
The Wichita card (also UFC on ESPN+ 4) takes place March 9 at the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.
