In Las Vegas, Nevada, Moriarty’s Tim Means achieved a milestone — his 30th MMA victory — on Saturday with a win by unanimous decision over Argentina’s Laureano Staropoli on a UFC Fight Night card.
The judges scored the welterweight fight 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28 as Means improved his record to 30-12-1. Staropoli is 9-3.
“I’m just proud to get a win and stay healthy,” Means said afterward on the espn+ streaming of Saturday’s card.
Means had lost his previous fight in February at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho in front of family, friends and fans.
He’d said this week that he was too emotional that night, his mind on two friends from Moriarty who recently had died in a car crash.
