We’re up to the UFC 202 main card, and first up at bat is Tim Means against Sabah Homasi. Means is coming off a USADA suspension for… oh, who cares for what. He’s just back. Homasi is a TUF vet with KO power, so given Means’ propensity for duking it out, this one could be a barnburner.
Homasi comes out with a plan, and that plan is to deliver a lot of punishment via hooks over the top and leg-kicks. Means combats all that jazz with accurate counters, and Homasi changes tactics by going for – and getting – a takedown. They’re only on the ground for a brief spell before scrambling up, and Homasi is breathing heavy as Means crowds him and picks at him with knees, elbows, kicks and punches. The Octagon rookie gets another takedown, but they’re quickly back up, and the veteran bloodies him with more slicing elbows. Homasi is handing on by a thread when the horn sounds.
They pick up right where they left off in Round 2, and Homasi is a mess that can barely stay upright under Means’ onslaught. Thankfully, referee Herb Dean sees enough and steps in. What a bloodbath.
Result: Tim Means def. Sabah Homasi via TKO (Punches) at 2:56, R2
