In the evening’s seventh bout, Danny Castillo was awarded a unanimous decision over Tim Means at UFC on Fox 8 in a fight where neither fighter imposed their will consistently.

Castillo’s takedowns carried the day against Means, but he failed to do much damage. Means enjoyed a huge reach advantage but struggled to stay on his feet against the Team Alpha Male fighter.

Means (who weighed in at 160 yesterday, five pounds over the lightweight limit) seemed to pull ahead in the fight late in the third round when he maneuvered Castillo into side control with a nice reversal and landed some solid strikes.  But, in the end Castillo’s ground attack was deemed the more impressive.

Scores were read as 29-28 from each judge in favor of Danny Castillo.
