Yesterday it was revealed that UFC welterweight Tim Means (27-7-1) was left without an opponent for UFC 202 after Sean Strickland withdrew through injury.
Not long after the news came out Irishman Peter Queally (8-2), who is currently over in Vegas helping Conor McGregor prepare for his UFC 202 fight against Nate Diaz, offered to step in.
Means at first laughed at the idea but then told him to call UFC matchmaker Joe SIlva. Here is their exchange on twitter:
Queally is currently on a three fight win streak and is currently scheduled to face Eldar Eldarov in Bahrain this September.
Means has been a member of the UFC roster since 2012 and has posted a record of 7-4 inside the Octagon. He has faced the likes of Matt Brown, Neil Magny, Jorge Masvidal and he holds wins over Dhiego Lima and John Howard, both of those wins earned him 'performance of the night' bonuses.
As mentioned before Conor McGregor will headline UFC 202 against Nate Diaz on August 20th. Irish MMA's Artem Lobov also fights on the card against Diaz teammate Chris Avila.
