Wow. This is quite the fight. Cerrone moves up to 170 lbs to take on Tim Means in a five-round main event just two months after losing to RDA. Perhaps a response to the IV ban?

Dumb fight. Why make this fight when so many other WWs and LWs could use a fight (and we just was Cowboy).   Not that it won't be entertaining... but is Cowboy making the move to WW, an extended stay at WW... if not, this is dumb.

I'm not sure moving up to 170 will be a good move for Cerrone in the long run, but this should be an awesome fight.

I prefer to sleep on beds. Feel like Means would be uncomfortable. Too boney.

This is going to be an amazing main event. Think Cerrone wins this fight but I like both guys a lot.

Cerrone is one of my favorite current fighters, but I don't like this fight for him. Guys that give Cowboy a problem are guys who move forward and blitz him. I wonder how he will handle the size difference. 15 lbs is a big difference.

Means is a good fighter but 170 pounds is actually the most stacked division so he's not even in top 20. I go with Cerrone but I think he is not big enought for the top of the division!

Violent fight right here. I see advantages for both of them. But Cowboy is more well rounded.

Cowboy had the funniest quote on the MMA Hour today. Something to the affect of, "Tim Means is a cool ass dude. The type of guy you'd fight at the Walmart."

@USMC, so matchmaking just because it's a sick fight isn't allowed anymore? Not much you can do with Cerrone at 155 right now, Means ain't getting a shot any time soon, why is it dumb to put on a fight that has no immediate implications other than pure fun?

Means will blast Cerrone, then Cerrone will retire.
