After losing to lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in his first UFC title bid two weeks ago, UFC contender Donald Cerrone has made the move up to welterweight and will face Tim Means in the main event of UFC Fight Night 82. The news was announced during Friday's UFC 195 weigh-ins on FOX Sports 1. Prior to his latest loss, Cerrone (28-6, 1 NC) was riding an eight-fight winning streak which included decisions over Benson Henderson and Eddie Alvarez, as well as stoppages against Edson Barboza and Jim Miller. Means (25-7-1) got back into the winning column in his latest outing last month with a second-round knockout over John Howard. Prior to that, he dropped a submission loss to top 170-pound contender Matt Brown. UFC Fight Night 82 takes place live from the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA on Feb. 21.
