    2 April welterweight matchups needed to be switched because of accidents, and for the current MMA Odds and Ends I’ll give 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 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 good striker for sure, however Means is one of the very best at the welterweight division at mixing in all his limbs, and thus if that fight stays standing he is likely to win it. If Sullivan could get Means up against the fence and property some key takedowns, he can certainly sneak a decision about the judges’ cards, but Means has revealed amazing takedown defence at 170lbs and it’s going to be somewhat difficult 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, but I think he has a really good shot here to knock Sullivan outside or acquire a decision and I’m actually leaning towards Means to find the victory here, even thinking about the fact he is taking it on short notice. Chris Clements vs. Nordine Taleb UFC 186 Claudio Silva is out of his 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 slated for its Fight Pass preliminary card. Silva vs. Taleb was likely going to be a boring, grinding affair involving two guys who like to push up their opponents against the fence until they gasoline out, so at least with Clements in today instead of Silva there’s a chance this could be entertaining. Clements, a striker, is always in fun, back-and-forth standup bouts and if he could keep Taleb from him, he will probably have the ability to stand in 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 a few takedowns, he can win this battle according to his wrestling independently. As a result, the key for Clements will be to halt the takedowns, and if he continues to show developments in his wrestling like he did in his last outing against Vik Grujic, where he stuffed the takedowns and then outstruck his competitor , he can win. I anticipate Taleb for a favorite here, but don’t sleep even with the brief notice.
