2 April welterweight matchups had to be switched due to injuries, and also for today’s MMA Odds and Ends I will offer my thoughts on the two new fights. 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 combat George Sullivan at UFC on FOX 15, which will be set for April 18 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Means vs. Sullivan will broadcast live on UFC Fight Pass. I don’t see the way he loses if Means can continue to keep this fight standing. Sullivan is a good striker for sure, but Means is one of the very best at the welterweight division at mixing in all of his limbs, and thus if that fight stays standing he is likely to win it. If Sullivan can get Means up against the fence and land some vital takedowns, he could certainly sneak a decision about the judges’ cards, but Means has shown amazing takedown defence at 170lbs and it’s going to be somewhat hard for Sullivan to do this. Means is taking this fight on short notice, and historically he’s a guy who does not get a lot of love from bettors, however I believe he has a really good shot here to knock Sullivan out or win a determination and I am really leaning towards Means to find the success here, even considering the fact he’s carrying it on short notice. Chris Clements vs. Nordine Taleb UFC 186 Claudio Silva is out of the UFC 186 welterweight bout against Nordine Taleb and today Chris Clements will take on Taleb in an all-Canadian affair. UFC 186 takes place April 25 at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Clements vs. Taleb is famous 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 their opponents up against the fence before they gasoline outside, in order with Clements in today instead of Silva there is a chance this might be entertaining. Clements, a striker, is in fun, back-and-forth standup charms and if he can keep Taleb off of him, he’ll likely have the ability to stand in the middle of the Octagon and hurt his foe. Taleb, though, is one of those guys who sticks to his rivals such as glue, and when he can push Clements up against the fence and land a few takedowns, he can win this fight according to his wrestling independently. As a result, the secret for Clements is going to be to halt the takedowns, and if he continues to show improvements in his wrestling like he did in his last outing against Vik Grujic, where he stuffed the takedowns and then outstruck his opponenthe can win. I anticipate Taleb for a favorite here, however, do not sleep even with the brief notice.
