Tim Means will look to build on a three-fight win streak when he returns to the octagon next month.

“The Dirty Bird” is set to face Jeremiah Wells as part of the UFC’s February 5, 2022 Fight Night event. MMA Junkie was first to report news of the bout, with Wells previously having teased that fight news was coming.

Means (32-12-1, 1NC) last fought in June, winning a unanimous decision against Nicolas Dalby. The veteran welterweight has also put together wins over Mike Perry and Laureano Staropoli; coincidentally, both of those opponents missed weight for their scraps with Means.

Overall, Means is 4-2 dating back to 2019 and shows no sign of slowing down as he approaches his 38th birthday.

Jeremiah Wells (9-2-1) is coming off a successful octagon debut which saw him finish TUF Brazil 3 winner Warlley Alves with ground n’ pound, also in June. Prior to that, Wells had claimed the welterweight title in Cage Fury FC.

The UFC’s February 5, 2022 event will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card is headlined by middleweights Sean Strickland and Jack Hermansson, with the following fights reported to date:
