UFC Wichita (UFC Fight Night 146) Occurs Saturday, March 9 in Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.
The card previously was revealed to be headlined by heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Junior dos Santos, and over the weekend a few new preliminary spells were added into the card, via ESPN. The new spells are recorded below, together with my first reactions to them, in the modern edition of MMA odds and ends.
Tim Means vs. Niko Price, UFC Fight Night 146
An intriguing welterweight matchup between Tim Means and Niko Price is place for UFC Fight Night 146. Means (28-10, 1 NC) is 10-7, 1 NC in the UFC and is coming from a TKO win over Ricky Rainey that snapped a two-fight split decision losing skid. At 34 he is started to age but revealed in the Rainey battle his remarkable abilities continue to be topnotch. Cost (12-2, 1 NC) is currently 4-2, 1 NC in the UFC and is coming off of a fast TKO loss to Abdul Razak Alhassan which was a disappointing followup to his brutal KO win over Randy Brown in the summer. What a fantastic fight that is between Means and Price because it is a struggle between two men who will finish the battle on the feet and on the floor. I can see this one going either way, and this may be a surprise to those who’ve been after me for many years, but I’d really slightly lean towards Price here just because of his age benefit and the reality Means has been in so many wars. The opening line should be shut, but I would probably peg Price as a slight favorite at open.
Alex Morono vs. Zak Ottow, UFC Fight Night 146
Welterweights Alex Morono and Zak Ottow may even meet on this card. Morono (15-5, 1 NC) is 4-2, 1 NC in the UFC and defeated Kenan Song in a »Battle of the Night » functionality his out time. Ottow (17-6) is 4-3 in the UFC and is coming off of a split decision win over Dwight Grant. This is a very evenly-matched connection between two guys in the middle of the pack at 170lbs who’ve been inconsistent in their UFC livelihood. I’ve been slightly more impressed by Morono within the Octagon so I would favor him just a bit here, but on paper it’s a close matchup and that I expect the opening line to be close a Pick’em.
Louis Smolka vs. Matt Schnell, UFC Fight Night 146
And lastly, Louis Smolka and Matt Schnell will move up to bantamweight and compete with this card. Smolka (15-5) lately forced his return to the UFC with a submission win over Mudaerji. All-time Smolka includes a 6-5 record in the UFC and is now riding a four-fight win streak overall in MMA. Schnell (11-4) is 2-2 in the UFC and conquered Naoki Inoue and Marco Beltran in his last two outings. Although Schnell has appeared better recently, Smolka is the talented fighter and is proven fighting 135lbs. I’d have to prefer Smolka to win this particular fight, along with the fact it is not taking place at flyweight is another sign the division is going to be closed down this year.
