Tim Means vs Niko Price Odds and Betting Prediction
March 06, 2019
Means doesn’t have the best form of late, having lost two fights on contentious split decisions to Belal Muhammad and Sergio Moraes before bouncing back with an impressive first round knockout in his last fight against Ricky Rainey.
Means comes from a boxing background (he’s won 68% of his fights by knockout), but he also has the athleticism to more than hold his own on the canvas. This will be the first career fight that Means has had in Kansas.
Niko Price has now won six of his last eight fights, but is coming into this off a September loss to Abdul Razak Alhassan. He has a background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and he’s effective with his strikes standing up, in the clinch and on the ground.
Although not the most technical or disciplined of fighters, Price can cause damage when his strikes land and his all out aggressive style can sometimes overwhelm opponents. This will also be his first career fight in Kansas.
