The Big Payback || UFC on ABC 2 bets

UFC bets

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. Ryan’s Guide to UFC on ABC 2 went up earlier this week.

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 Network on Patreon.


The rules are simple. We make 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, odds reflect the amount of money won or lost on 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.

Additionally, we will give our “best bet” exclusively on our In the Clinch podcast that drops on Tuesdays. Two weeks ago, Ryan’s pick won and mine lost as he picked Francis N’Gannou to win the Heavyweight title and I picked Tyron Woodley. He’s now 5-5 but has a $239.24 loss on his best bets. Mine are 3-5 with a loss of $254.39.

UFC 260 results

Ryan’s picks went 3-2 with a profit of $14.68. This was 3rd profitable week in the last four. Ryan won the night for the 3rd time this year. He’s second behind Promise with six and I have won twice.

My picks were 0–5 with a loss of $500 for the 2nd week in a row. I attempted to pick all big underdogs in the hope a few of them came through and it failed miserably.

Promise went 2-2 with a loss of $97.73. This was his 3rd losing week in the last 4 after starting the season really strong.
