Bet UFC Fight Night 112

Tim Means vs. Alex Garcia

Means is 26-8-1 in his career, including 10-5-1 in the UFC. He has two wins, two losses and a no contest in his last five fights. He is an excellent striker, winning almost 70% of his fights by knockout. The problem for Means is on the mat, as he has been submitted four times in his career.

Means will be fighting in his home state of Oklahoma so he will have plenty of family and friends in attendance. Means said he was not 100% healthy in his loss to Oliveira but that he is at full strength now. “To get to go home and fight in front of the friends and family and the people that haven’t seen me get to fight, or don’t know how much my job means to me, or how passionate I am about it, I am excited to go in front of the home crowd.” Means said, “I have a lot of support from the fans there, and I am just looking to wipe the slate clean from Brazil you know, I had a bad performance. I am just putting it as more momentum and a positive influence; I want to go get something done in Oklahoma.”

Garcia is 14-3 in his career, including 4-2 in the UFC. He has won almost half of his fights by knockout and he is coming off a knockout win over Mike Pyle at UFC 207 in December of last year. Garcia has plenty of knockout power but he can also handle himself on the mat, as he has five submission wins.

UFC Picks

I don’t know that Garcia can handle the power of Means, so if Means can avoid an early takedown I think he will overpower Garcia and get the win.
