Two April welterweight matchups needed to be switched due to accidents, and also for the current MMA Odds and Ends I will give my thoughts on the two new struggles. Tim Means vs. George Sullivan, UFC on FOX 15 Because of an injury to Kenny Robertson, Tim Means will step in on short notice to battle George Sullivan in UFC on FOX 15, which is set for April 18 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Means vs. Sullivan will broadcast live on UFC Fight Pass. If this battle standing can be kept by Means, I don’t see the way he loses. Sullivan is a decent striker for sure, but Means is among the best at the welterweight division at mixing in all his limbs, and thus if this struggle stays standing he’s likely to win it. If Sullivan can get Means up against the fence and property some vital takedowns, he could certainly sneak a decision on the judges’ cards, but Means has revealed awesome takedown defence at 170lbs and it’s going to be somewhat difficult for Sullivan to do this. Means is carrying this fight on short notice, and historically he’s a guy who doesn’t get a lot of love from bettors, however I think he’s a great shot here to knock Sullivan outside or acquire a decision and I’m really leaning towards Means to find the success here, even thinking about the fact he is carrying it on short notice. Chris Clements vs. Nordine Taleb UFC 186 Claudio Silva is from the UFC 186 welterweight bout against Nordine Taleb and today Chris Clements will take on Taleb within an all-Canadian affair. UFC 186 takes place April 25 at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Clements vs. Taleb is slated for its Fight Pass first card card. Silva vs. Taleb was probably going to become a boring, grinding affair involving two men who like to push up their opponents against the fence until they gas out, in order with Clements in now in place of Silva there is a chance this could be entertaining. Clements, a striker, is in enjoyable, back-and-forth standup charms and when he could keep Taleb off of him, he’ll probably have the ability to stand in the center of the Octagon and hurt his foe. Taleb, however, is one of the men that sticks to his rivals such as glue, and if he can push Clements up against the fence and property some takedowns, he can win this battle based on his wrestling alone. As a result, the key for Clements will be to stop the takedowns, and if he continues to show improvements in his wrestling just like he did in his last outing against Vik Grujic, where he stuffed the takedowns and outstruck his competitor , he could win. I expect Taleb for a favorite here, but don’t sleep even with the brief notice.
