Tim Means slips in sauna, out of UFC on FOX 5 fight with Abel Trujillo

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

UFC President Dana White continues to deal with injuries leading up to UFC on FOX 5 tomorrow, as Tim Means is out of his fight with Abel Trujillo after he knocked himself out slipping in the sauna.

I really couldn't make this one up if I tried. Tim Means vs. Abel Trujillo is no more after Means slipped in the sauna. Dana White just tweeted this earlier this hour.

I don't know what more I can add to that. As much as the FOX main card has thankfully stayed healthy, the preliminary card is basically one incident after another. I believe this is the 9th different injury (EDIT: It's 8) or illness for the prelims and this is the most bizarre one yet. This means that Marcus LeVesseur, who just lost his opponent (Michael Chiesa) a few days ago to illness, will fight Abel Trujillo in a little over 24 hours.
