Gordon Ryan is feeling supremely confident with his upcoming match against Felipe Pena. After plenty of back-and-forth on social media and according to ADCC head organizer Mo Jassim, Ryan and Pena signed contracts agreeing to put up their own money on the outcome of the match… talk about putting your money where your mouth is. 

Ryan and Pena are scheduled to face off against each other on Sunday, August 7, in a submission-only, no-time limit match at Who’s Number One.

To increase the stakes, Ryan has agreed to 10-1 odds, meaning that he will put up $100,000 against Pena’s $10,000. Ryan posted about the bet on Instagram with the post below:

According to Ryan, a previous version of the match contract included a clause where the loser would be required to hand the winner a hefty novelty check after the match.

Looking back a few years, Ryan and Pena have quite a history. Pena first defeated Ryan in 2016, submitting him after an incredible 45 minutes. They squared off again in the finals of the absolute division of the 2017 ADCC World Championships, where Pena won again, but this time via points. Ryan and Pena have been back and forth insulting each other on social media for the past few years

Their fight at WNO will be one of the most anticipated of the year and may set the stage for an even more anticipated display later at the ADCC World Championships in September.

Watch it LIVE Aug. 7th:
