Lima was a middleweight finalist on the nineteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter, losing to Eddie Gordon on the finale.
He has since fought one more time in the Octagon, although he dropped down to welterweight. Lima defeated Jorge Oliveira by unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 56 in Brazil in November, and looks to build on that momentum UFC 184.

Means is on his second tour of duty through the UFC. He went 2-2 on his first go around, but is 2-1 during his current, and coming off of back-to-back wins over Hernani Perpétuo and Márcio Alexandre.
A victory over Lima would be a huge step up the welterweight ladder for Means.
