SEATTLE - Lightweight Tim (The Dirty Bird) Means has pulled out of Saturday's UFC's televised card in Seattle after slipping in the sauna and hitting his head.

The UFC said the accident happened Friday. Means (18-3-1) was slated to fight UFC newcomer Abel (Killa) Trujillo (9-4).

Means has been replaced by Marcus (The Prospect) LeVesseur (22-6), whose Seattle bout was cancelled when opponent Michael Chiesa fell ill.
