Tim Means returns from suspension against Sean Strickland at UFC 202 in August

Tim Means is set to return after a reduced six month USADA suspension, as the ABQ Journal reports that he’ll take on Sean Strickland at UFC 202 in Las Vegas this August.

Means was slated to face Donald Cerrone in February before an out of competition drug test came up positive for a banned substance. He was pulled from the card, but after it was determined to be due to a tainted supplement, USADA presented Means with a six month term rather than the two years he was facing.

5-1 over his last six fights, Means most recently bounced back from a submission loss to Matt Brown when he knocked out John Howard in December.

The 25-year-old Strickland is 5-1 inside the Octagon overall, and is riding a three fight winning streak into this event. This will be his third fight in 2016, following up on a February TKO over Alex Garcia before defeating Tom Breese by split decision earlier this month.

UFC 202 hits the T-Mobile Arena on August 20, headlined by the welterweight fight between UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.
