UFC officials confirmed the news to MMA Fighting on Tuesday.
Roberts was pulled from the card due to COVID-19 protocols and he’ll have to wait until a later date to book his next appearance in the octagon.
It’s expected that Means will get a new opponent with a rescheduled fight in the coming weeks. There’s no word on when Roberts will return to action.
Means teased on Twitter that he will have new fight news coming soon.
