Ryan Frederick and I are staff writers at WrestlingObserver.com and regular contributors to this site. We also co-host the “In the Clinch” MMA Podcast on the Fight Game Media patreon.

Thomas Matera is a former WWE superstar and current independent wrestler  and MMA enthusiast. He also hosts the “Left My Wallet” podcast on the F4W network and “What’s Your Finish, I’ll Move” with Johnny Jeter on the Fight Game Media patreon. 

Ryan’s Guide to UFC on ESPN+ 44 went up earlier this week.


The rules are simple. Each of us makes five picks for each card and a $100 bet on each pick. We will keep track of the profits and losses, the most fights picked correctly and the number of events won per person. Obviously if you’re betting, the only important thing is how much money you win and lose, so keep that in mind.

For betting novices, the odds reflect the amount of money won or lost for a $100 bet. If the odds are negative, you must bet that amount to win $100. If they are positive, you win that amount if you bet $100.

In addition, we will give a “best bet” exclusively on our In the Clinch podcast that drops every Tuesday. Last week, mine was “The Sexy Mexi” John Castaneda and Ryan’s was Casey O’Neill and both of them won. My best bets are now 3-1 on the year for a profit of $145.61 and Ryan’s are 3–2 with a loss of $39.63
