It’s been a trying 2016 for Tim Means.
The welterweight returned to action Saturday night and picked up a second round TKO victory over Sabah Homasi to start the UFC 202 main card off in Las Vegas.
Means, though, wants more.
He was set to fight Donald Cerrone earlier this year before a tainted supplement left him with a six-month suspension and out of the main event bout. He was scheduled to fight Sean Strickland, but an injury sidelined Strickland.
“It is what it is,” Means said. “You go through things in life, hard things, but you just have to dust yourself off.
“I am proud, happy to be here. I was working for $9 an hour, so I am just happy to be here.”
Means (26-7-1) is now 6-1 over his last seven fights, losing only to top contender Matt Brown since 2014.
