UFC welterweight veteran Tim Means has his next assignment.

The promotion announced Monday that Means (31-12-1, 1 NC) will face Danny Roberts (17-5) at a June 19 UFC APEX event in Las Vegas. Means broke the news himself last week.

Means will make his 24th walk to the octagon when he fights Roberts and he owns a 13-9 (1 NC) record in the UFC. “The Dirty Bird” has won two straight fights and three of his past four. He competed three times in 2020, losing by submission to Daniel Rodriguez and then rebounding with back-to-back decision victories over Laureano Staropoli and Mike Perry.

England’s Roberts is also coming off of a win, though he has not competed in 18 months after seeing a pair of bouts against Nicolas Dalby fall through in 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak cancelling their first outing and an injury forcing Roberts out of the second. In his most recent fight at UFC Moscow in November 2019, Roberts scored a second-round KO of Zelim Imadaev to stop a two-fight skid. His UFC record stands at 6-4.

The June 19 UFC card is expected to be headlined by a bout between featherweight contenders Chan Sung Jung and Dan Ige.
