Two April welterweight matchups had to be changed due to injuries, and also for today’s MMA Odds and Ends I will give my thoughts on the two new struggles. Tim Means vs. George Sullivan, UFC on FOX 15 Due to 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 air live on UFC Fight Pass. I don’t see how he loses if this fight standing can be kept by Means. Sullivan is a decent striker for sure, however Means is one of the best in the welterweight division at mixing in all of his limbs, and thus if this struggle stays standing he is likely to win it. If Sullivan can get Means up against the fence and property some vital takedowns, he can definitely steal a determination 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 that. Means is carrying this fight on short notice, and he’s a man who doesn’t get a lot of love from bettors, but I think he has a really good shot here to either knock Sullivan outside or acquire a determination and I’m actually leaning towards Means to find the victory here, even thinking about the fact he’s taking 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 now Chris Clements will take on Taleb in an all-Canadian event. UFC 186 takes place April 25 at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Clements vs. Taleb is famous for its Fight Pass preliminary card. Silva vs. Taleb was likely going to become a dull, grinding affair between two men who like to push up their opponents against the fence until they gasoline outside, in order with Clements in today in place of Silva there’s a chance this could be entertaining. Clements, a striker, is in fun, back-and-forth standup bouts and when he could keep Taleb off of him, he’ll likely be able to stand at the middle of the Octagon and hurt his foe. Taleb, though, is one of those men who sticks to his rivals such as glue, and when he can push Clements up against the fence and property a few takedowns, he could win this battle according to his wrestling independently. Therefore, the key for Clements is going to 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, at which he stuffed the takedowns and then outstruck his competitor , he could win. I anticipate Taleb to be a favorite here, however, do not sleep even with the brief notice.
