This article is part of our ADCC 2022 coverage. To get live results, play by play, and commentary, we’ll have a live updates article running all weekend.
The betting odds have just been released for the world’s most hotly-anticipated BJJ match, Gordon Ryan v Andre Galvao for the superfight championship at ADCC 2022. F2W CEO Seth Daniels runs a betting organization that regularly takes bets on F2W and UFC events, and he’s just announced the odds for the match in a post to his official Instagram account. Interestingly, it seems as though Daniels is not entirely confident that both Gordon Ryan and Andre Galvao will make it to the mats for their upcoming match either as he’s also offering betting odds on whether or not the fight actually takes place to begin with. If the fight does get called off, all bets on the outcome of the fight will be refunded of course.
His caution is completely understandable of course as even ADCC boss Mo Jassim was not so confident in the past that he was going to be able to convince Andre Galvao to take the match against Gordon Ryan. Shortly before he put pen to paper and accepted the match, Galvao even went so far as to ask for a million dollars to compete against Ryan. The uncertainty surrounding the match isn’t entirely one-sided either, as Ryan also has his own obstacle to overcome in order to take on Galvao. Earlier this year, he announced his retirement from BJJ competition as a result of his stomach condition and threw his presence at ADCC 2022 in doubt.
As things stand right now, the match is on. The pair even had a heated altercation backstage at a Who’s Number One event that led to Ryan slapping Galvao twice and building a huge amount of suspense for the match. Since then, Galvao has agreed to compete in the superfight match for the fifth consecutive time and attempt to extend his reign to over a decade. Although Ryan hasn’t made a firm statement confirming that he will stand opposite him, Mo Jassim has confirmed that he will be competing and Ryan has announced his return to competition against UFC competitor Philip Rowe at an upcoming WNO event.
