We’re back with another action-packed fight card. This week we’ll be covering UFC Fight Night 165 so, let’s delve into our weekly accumulator/parlay betting predictions, are you ready for this week’s UFC tips?
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">UFC Featherweight Bout</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Doo Ho Choi vs Charles Jourdain</strong></p><p style="text-align:center">UFC Fight Night 165 takes place on Saturday, November 21st at the Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea</p><p>After last week’s UFC 245 PPV it’s going to be hard to match that energy and level of entertainment but, the UFC isn’t done with 2019 just yet.</p><p>Before the co-main and main event of the evening at UFC Busan, ‘The Korean Super Boy’ Doo Ho Choi will make his long-awaited return to the UFC octagon. A fan favourite amongst UFC die-hards and Korean viewers, Choi has put on some of the most entertaining fights to date. Memorable moments would be his battle with Cub Swanson and his fight of the night with Jeremy Stephens.</p><p>It’s a shame that we’ve only had the pleasure of watching Choi fight on average once per year but, no need to complain any longer as the explosive Korean striker will make his return against Charles Jourdain.</p><p>Jourdain was dominated by Desmond Green in his UFC debut back in May 2019. With just 3 years’ experience as a professional martial artist, Jourdain has a tough task ahead of him this weekend. After losing your debut fight, the last matchup you want to take is against Choi in his own back yard.</p><p>The offensive striking pressure might be too much for Jourdain to handle, some may say it’s a classic UFC “setup” fight.</p><p style="text-align:center">&lt;iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bwOyzyn6AV8" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;</p><h2>UFC Busan Choi vs Jourdain Prediction</h2><p>Jourdain is the perfect matchup for the ‘Korean Superboy’ to make his return, in my opinion. He struggled with the wrestling from Desmond Green and although Jourdain did survive the 3 rounds, he didn’t present us with any significant dangers that he might bring to the division.</p><p>Choi has some beautiful striking offence, movement and forward pressure. I don’t want to jump the gun but, the KO artist we loved prior to his back to back losses could return to Busan this weekend. Choi was thrown into the wolves early in his career, with time to reflect and now with an opponent closer to his level; Choi might just earn himself the performance of the night like the old days.</p><p><strong>UFC Accumulator Betting Tip 1: Doo Ho Choi [1.36] [9/25] @ <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betway</a></strong></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><h2 style="text-align:center">UFC Light Heavyweight Bout</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Aleksandar Rakic vs Volkan Oezdemir</strong></p><p style="text-align:center">UFC Fight Night 165 takes place on Saturday, November 21st at the Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea</p><p>The co-main event of the evening will put the up and coming Aleksandar Rakic against former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir. With the potential to end within the first minute, these two heavy-hitters will go toe to toe in what should be one of the best fights on the card.</p><p>Rakic has made his mark in the LHW division and will be looking to check off another well-known name on his 12-1 record. The 27-year-old Austrian viscously knocked out his previous two opponents, Jimi Manuwa and Devin Clark both felt the power from Rakic via punches for Clark and a devastating head-kick for Manuwa. A win over Oezdemir will put Rakic right in line for his opportunity at the title, especially with a lack of challengers for Jon Jones if he gets passed Dominick Reyes.</p><p>Oezdemir has been one of the fastest rising Light Heavyweight’s to date, debuting in 2017; he quickly made his way through the ranks… After consecutive knockouts, he fought for the gold but came up short against Daniel Cormier. The decline didn’t stop there as Oezdemir would fall victim to Smith and Reyes following his title opportunity. A bounce-back win over Ilir Latifi wasn’t all that significant considering Latifi is an ageing fighter. If Oezdemir was able to derail the hype train behind Rakic, the valuable stock he once owned could return.</p><p style="text-align:center">&lt;iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fiquJUSxuXI" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;</p><h2>At the end of the day</h2><p>We’re going to see a striking battle that’s for sure, whether or not either fighter will implement a wrestling strategy is still up in the air. I think Rakic holds the grappling advantage but if he’s comfortable standing with Oezdemir, he might think twice. He is coming off a potential knockout of the year so I’m sure the confidence in Rakic’s striking is at an all-time high.</p><p>Rakic will hold the size advantage in height and reach by a significant amount; he’s younger, taken less damage, and evolving after every fight he wins. If Rakic shoot’s on Oezdemir I don’t think he’ll have any problems finishing the takedown, we’ve seen the lack of grappling defence from Oezdemir in the past…Maybe Rakic will capitalise on this in order to find himself in a ground and pound position.</p><p>Oezdemir has some punishing hands but I do think his striking power is overrated. I believe if Rakic can maintain the early pressure from Oezdemir, his cardio will stand the test of time and he will have his way. My gut says Rakic hands out another highlight-reel finish but, for the accumulator and betting purposes, I’ll stick with Rakic for the straight win.</p><p><strong>Accumulator Betting Tip 2: Aleksandar Rakic to win [1.67] [67/100] @ <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betway</a></strong></p><p> </p><p><span style="color:inherit;font-family:inherit;font-size:1.2em;font-weight:700">Punching Parlay Wrap Up</span></p><ul> <li>Doo Ho Choi [1.33]</li> <li>Aleksandar Rakic [1.67]</li></ul><p><br /><strong>Parlay/Accumulator Odds: [2.27] [+127] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betway</a></strong></p><ul> <li>Stake: £100</li> <li>Returns: £227</li> <li>Profit: £127</li> <li>Current Bankroll: + £236.50</li> <li>The Weekly Punching Parlay Season 4 Record: 5-4</li> <li>Season One Record: 10-0</li> <li>End of Season 1 Profit: (+10.1 Units of Profit)</li> <li>Season Two Record: 3-7</li> <li>End of Season 1 Profit: (-4.95 Units of Profit)</li> <li>Season Three Record: 7-3</li> <li>End of Season 1 Profit: (+7.4.
