If I say un homme mauvaise, would it mean the same thing or is méchant a more dire badness?

"un homme mauvais" (no -e at the end, which is the ending of the feminine gender), "méchant" (mean or bad) roughly mean the same thing.

Why we say «Un homme mauvais» but «Un méchant homme»? Why isn't «Un homme méchant» better?
