UFC Fight Night: Tim Means vs Max Griffin Fight Breakdown and Prediction
“He’s a durable guy with a lot of heart and gets in your face and fights you, I’m excited to fight Max and make it a violent fight. Once the cage door shuts, you have to find a reason not to like the guy across from you. So respect, but let’s get violent.” This is what Means had to say ahead of his 26th UFC appearance this Saturday.
With a 76″ reach, Griffin has a one-inch reach advantage while Means is the taller fighter. According to UFC stats, Means lands 5 significant strikes per minute while Griffin lands 4.4. Although Griffin falls short in volume, without a doubt his punches hold greater power. In his last fight, Griffin knocked down top welterweight contender Neil Magny on multiple occasions before losing a spit decision. Stylistically this should be a fast-paced fight with the fighter landing more accurate shots possibly emerging victorious.
Solely based on their last performances, Griffin comes into this fight as a betting favorite and might walk away with a unanimous or split decision victory.
