UFC 165 will take place from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Jon Jones (18-1) vs. Alexander Gustafsson (15-1)

Gustafsson does pose some interesting challenges to Jones, but the champion is just too athletic and too talented for the challenger. Gustafsson will have to keep the fight standing to win, and he may not even have the edge there. Look for Jones to work Gustafsson to the ground eventually and submit him as the fight gets into the later rounds. Look for a third-round submission win for the champ. UFC 165 FREE PICK – Jon Jones -800

UFC INTERIM BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Renan Barao (30-1) vs. Eddie Wineland (20-8-1)

Barao is not getting the credit he deserves for being amongst the best pound-for-pound fighters. He is talented on the feet and can submit anyone. Wineland has a puncher’s chance, as he pack quite the wallop, but he will likely be outclassed by the champion for a max of 25 minutes. Barao will probably slowly tire his opponent before finishing things with a choke in the fourth round. UFC 165 FREE PICK – Renan Barao -650

UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUTPat Healy (29-16) vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov (20-0)

Khabib is having an impressive run, but he is now facing a fighter with a great motor and one that knows how to grind out a victory. Healy is desperate for the win since his last victory in the UFC was overturned due to a failed drug test. Healy knows he probably needs to win this fight to keep his job. Due to the situation surrounding the fight, we like the underdog to get the decision. UFC 165 FREE PICK – Pat Healy +195
