Over 20 years in the gambling industry, an avid follower of MMA for almost a decade.
Despite being relatively new to the MMA scene, when the sport finally bit; it bit hard. I watched my first event on ESPN, which was UFC 116 where Shane Carwin nearly demolished Brock Lesnar only to gas late on and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. I was mesmerised.
Since then I have watched virtually every event and take in live shows when I am either on holiday or they are local. Living in the UK we have hardly been spoiled for choice, although I did make the pilgrimage to Vegas to watch UFC 146.
Having spent a lot of time in the betting industry, both online and offline I decided to start my own column. As well as this website you can also find me as a regular contributor over at http://www.fightersonlymag.com
Feel free to follow me on twitter @mattwhitemma and comment if you want a reply.
I will be updating the blog on a regular basis, pretty much every time there is an event on. However, if you would like me to cover anything else, don’t be afraid to leave a comment or a request and I will happily take a look when I have enough time.
Finally, and most importantly, I have no links, ties or affiliations to Zuffa or any subsidiary of the UFC., and no profit is generated from this site other than for betting activity. All tips are my own views and all rights are reserved.
If you have ever made money off my picks and wanted to say ‘Gee, Thanks’ then I have a tipjar over at Paypal.
