The Ultimate Fighting Championship will pack their bags once again when they travel to Australia for UFC 243. Headliner “Whittaker vs Adesanya” will assault; then blow the roof off the Marvel Stadium.

<p>The punching parlay season three finale didn’t turn out as expected, we took a loss on the event overall and will put Denmark’s fight night event in our rear-view mirror. Onto UFC 243 and the most anticipated fight in Australian combat history. Melbourne Australia will play host to ‘Whittaker vs Adesanya’ but, before the main event, we have some interesting betting predictions to suit your accumulator/parlay needs. Lets kick-start season four with a bang.</p><div><h2 align="center">UFC Welterweight Bout</h2><h2 align="center"><strong>Jake Matthews vs Rostem Akman </strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>UFC 243 takes place on Saturday 5<sup>th</sup> October live from the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.</strong></p><p>Once a big prospect with high hopes, Jake Matthews hasn’t quite found a winning rhythm on his UFC venture thus far but with an opponent of Rostem Akman’s calibre, Jake should be confident in securing the victory back home in Australia.</p><p>The Aussie was riding a tidy 3-fight win streak with an impressive victory over Jingliang Li and then stepped in Anthony ‘Rocco’ Martin who himself was riding an impressive win streak. Jake lost all rounds ending the fight with a third-round submission loss. Now we have the bounce-back position for Jake where he fights back home against the unexperienced new-comer, Rostem Akman.</p><p>Rostem Akman made his debut for the UFC back in January of 2019. A decision loss with little to give other than an underwhelming performance didn’t start his UFC career how he envisioned it. Can the Swede turn his fortunes around against the experienced Jake Matthews in hostile territory?</p><p>A tailor-made fight Jake Matthews in my opinion. The experience Jake has over Akman is huge, and although it’s quite a high line for a fighter coming off a loss, Jake outclasses Akman in most areas.</p><h2><strong><u>At the end of the day </u></strong></h2><p>I anticipate some back and forth action from both fighters but ultimately, Jake has the advantage in all areas. Akman has been rushed into the UFC; making his debut on short notice. A full fight camp might show an even more durable version of Akman, but other than a lucky-ko I can’t see how the Swedish native can out-point a well-rounded, experienced Jake Matthews.</p><p>Akman showed toughness, Jake holds the skill advantage. Jake is still young enough where we could see huge improvements from each defeat, so I don’t worry too much about losses given up by younger fighters.</p><p>I think Jake can walk away with an easy decision victory or even a potential finish to the fight. The first UFC betting prediction on this week’s accumulator/parlay will be Jake Matthews.</p><p align="center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="UFC Betting Odds"><strong>Accumulator betting tip 1: Jake Matthews [1.36] @ Bet365</strong></a></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2 align="center"><strong>UFC Welterweight Bout</strong></h2><h2 align="center"><strong>Maki Pitolo vs Callan Potter </strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>UFC 243 takes place on Saturday 5<sup>th</sup> October live from the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.</strong></p><p>Maki Pitolo makes his UFC debut in inhospitable territory against Australian born Callan Potter. Between the two welterweights, they’ve had 40 professional bouts with just four of those going to the judge’s scorecard. We could be in for another finish if the statistical trend continues.</p><p>Pitolo earnt himself a UFC contract from competing on ‘Dana Whites Contender Series’. The high-level striking Pitolo has perfected over the years will be an obstacle for the lower level competition. A 7-year age gap with a similar amount of experience than his opponent favours Pitolo for me.</p><p>Maki Pitolo is compact and muscular, giving up the height and reach advantage shouldn’t be a problem against Potter as Pitolo is the more technically proficient striker of the two.</p><p>The money line betting odds for this UFC 243 preliminary fight aren’t worth a look, but as a parlay piece, I think Pitolo is a safe play.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;iframe width=\"560\" height=\"315\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/YfSIg4wKcos\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;"}[/]</p><h2><strong><u>At the end of the day </u></strong></h2><p>The only offensive skill Potter can bring to the table won’t be enough. A judo throw or two with some ground control aren’t likely when studying the fight tape. Potter’s striking defence has a lot to be desired, the openings Potter has left in his previous fights will be a problem against Pitolo.</p><p>The game-plan for Potter will be all in the grappling. If he fails to get a takedown then it's going to be a long night for the Aussie. Every fight starts standing and for this one I’ll side with the dangerous striker against the average grappler.</p><p align="center"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="UFC Betting Odds"><strong>Accumulator betting tip 2: Maki Pitolo [1.40] @ Bet365</strong></a></p><h2 align="center"><strong>UFC Heavyweight Bout</strong></h2><h2 align="center"><strong>Tai Tuivasa vs Sergey Spivak </strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>UFC 243 takes place on Saturday 5<sup>th</sup> October live from the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.</strong></p><p>A long-awaited return to Australian soil for Tai Tuivasa comes to an end this weekend, making his return to the UFC octagon against Sergey Spivak.</p><p>If you’ve been following our UFC betting picks and fight predictions at odds market you’ll have already read the in-depth preview on <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/fighting/octagon-cynosure-featuring-tai-tuivasa-ufc-243-betting-predictions-ufc-tips/90838/">Tai Tuivasa</a>.
