Head to Head results of the pros?

Are there any records of big players going head to head, such as Reyes vs Strickland, Strickland vs Hall, Van Boening vs Reyes, Archer vs Reyes or Strickland, etc. How many times they played each other, who won the most, etc.. I tried searching but had no luck. Thanks.

There are individual accounts of matches, but nothing that I know of that would be officially recorded. When these guys play it is usually for thousands of dollars. $20k would be a cheap match. Most of the time it is just hyped up through social media and they have a PPV live stream and I doubt anyone keeps a public record of who wins and how much.

they play each other in the tournaments and know who will beat who most times. so when they have the big matches its because money is staked or they are getting something from the commercialization of the match.
few of the top players have enough money to play a big match on their own anyway.
also outcomes are suspect as they dont have any skin in the game.

+1 to being staked. Almost every match I know of has been staked by others. I know of a couple players that play on their own money but that is a short list.

nothing wrong with being staked. gives the player a chance to make some money. but it really is just a bet between two other people rather than a big game between two players.
still exciting for people to watch or talk about.
