Two April welterweight matchups needed to be changed because of injuries, and also for today’s MMA Odds and Ends I’ll offer my thoughts on both 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 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 how he loses if Means can continue to keep this battle standing. Sullivan is a decent striker for certain, however Means is one of the very best in the welterweight division at mixing in all of his limbs, and thus if that fight stays standing he’s going to win it. If Sullivan could get Means up against the fence and land some key takedowns, he can certainly sneak a determination about the judges’ cards, but Means has shown awesome takedown defence at 170lbs and it’s going to be somewhat hard for Sullivan to do this. Means is carrying this fight on short notice, and historically he’s a guy who doesn’t get a good deal of love out of bettors, however I believe he has a really good shot here to either knock Sullivan outside or acquire a decision and I am really 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 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 famous for the Fight Pass preliminary card. Silva vs. Taleb was probably going to become a dull, grinding affair involving two guys who like to push their opponents up against the fence until they gasoline outside, so at least with Clements in today in place of Silva there’s a chance this might be entertaining. Clements, a striker, is always in enjoyable, back-and-forth standup bouts and if he could keep Taleb from him, he’ll likely have the ability to stand at the center of the Octagon and hurt his foe. Taleb, though, is one of those men who sticks to his opponents like glue, and if he can push Clements up against the fence and land some takedowns, he could win this fight based on his wrestling independently. As a result, the key for Clements is going to be to halt the takedowns, and if he continues to show developments in his wrestling just like he did in his last outing against Vik Grujic, where he stuffed the takedowns and outstruck his opponent, he can win. I anticipate Taleb to be a slight favorite here, however, do not sleep with the short notice, even on Clements inside this spot.
