Tim Means and Alex Oliveira set to rematch at UFN Fortaleza

Tim Means and Alex Oliveira will be going at it for the second time, according to a report by Combate.

The pair first met at UFC 207 where the bout ended with a no-contest after Means landed two illegal knees to a grounded Oliveira, who was no longer able to continue.

Their rematch is set to take place at UFC Fight Night 106 in Fortaleza, Brazil on March 11.

Means (26-7-1, 1 NC) entered the bout with Oliveira coming off of back-to-back stoppage victories. The first was a knockout of John Howard in December 2015 which earned him a Performance of the Night bonus. The more recent one was a second-round TKO of newcomer Sabah Homasi at UFC 202.

Also coming off of back-to-back wins was Oliveira (16-3-1, 2 NC) who became the first fighter to stop former Bellator lightweight champion Will Brooks since 2013. Before that, scored a decision win over James Moontasri.

UFC Fight Night 106 will be headlined by a middleweight bout between Kelvin Gastelum and Vitor Belfort.
