Cursed 2012: UFC on FOX 5 fighter slips in sauna, ruled out for Saturday night fight

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Ba-da-dum-dum-dum ... another one bites the dust. See who's out (and who's back in) at UFC on FOX 5 after an unfortunate accident inside the sauna.

Tim Means just got KTFO.

Why is this news? Because the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight did it just 24 hours before stepping into the cage against Abel Trujillo at the UFC on FOX 5 event scheduled for tomorrow night (Dec. 8) at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.

UFC President Dana White has the unintentionally hilarious details:

So much for that happy little miracle.

Fortunately for Trujillo, Marcus LeVesseur has been on standby after The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 champion Michael Chiesa was pulled from their "Emerald City" showdown due to illness, and has been given the green light to step in for "The Dirty Bird."
