Welterweights: Mike Perry -150 vs. Tim Means + 130

 

The last non-title fight on the UFC 255 card Saturday in Las Vegas will feature two welterweights outside the rankings but hoping to break in. Mike Perry and Tim Means are finishers, and neither prefers to wrestle. Their lack of takedown attempts and minimal submission attempts prompts us to focus primarily on their stand-up metrics. 

Both tend to fight aggressively on their feet. They have good offensive accuracy but slightly below-average takedown defense. Those are yet more reasons to expect a slobberknocker. The key differences are Perry’s clear power advantage and Means’ superior accuracy and range. And when it comes to slinging heat, Perry uses a greater mix of power strikes compared to jabs, and he knocks down opponents more often on a per-strike basis. Perry has almost as many knockdowns scored despite Means having more than a full hour more of octagon time.
