2 April welterweight matchups needed to be switched due to accidents, and for the current MMA Odds and Ends I will offer 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 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 air live on UFC Fight Pass. I don’t see how he loses if Means can continue to keep this fight standing. Sullivan is a good striker for sure, however Means is one of the best at the welterweight division at blending in all his limbs, and so if this struggle stays standing he’s going to win it. If Sullivan can get Means up against the fence and property some key takedowns, he can certainly sneak a determination about the judges’ cards, but Means has shown awesome takedown defence at 170lbs and it is going to be somewhat hard for Sullivan to do this. Means is taking this fight on short notice, and historically he’s a man who does not get a lot of love from bettors, however I believe he’s a great shot here to knock Sullivan out or win a determination and I am actually leaning towards Means to find the success here, even considering the fact he is taking 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 occurs April 25 at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Clements vs. Taleb is famous for the Fight Pass preliminary card. Silva vs. Taleb was probably going to become a boring, grinding affair involving two men who prefer to push their opponents up 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 enjoyable, back-and-forth standup bouts and if he can keep Taleb from him, he will likely be able to stand in the center of the Octagon and hurt his foe. Taleb, though, is one of the men that sticks to his opponents like glue, and if he can push Clements up against the fence and land a few takedowns, he could win this battle according to his wrestling independently. As a result, the key for Clements is going to be to halt the takedowns, and when he continues to show developments in his wrestling 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 for a favorite here, however, do not sleep even with the short notice factoring in.
