Drake is $2 million lighter this morning after betting on the loser in Saturday night’s UFC title fight, but for a good part of the fight he looked like he was gonna win big.
The iconic rapper — known for his love of high-stakes gambling — plunked down the INSANE amount of cash on middleweight champion Israel Adesanya to beat Alex Pereira during UFC 281 at Madison Square Garden in NYC.
Adesanya seemed to have the upper hand until the 5th round. Pereira unleashed a series body blows that stunned Adesanya but didn’t fall to the ground. The referee intervened and stopped the fight.
Pereira’s victory marked the third time he defeated Adesanya … their other two clashes were kickboxing matches.
Drake captioned his ticket with the words “been focussed on the album gotta return to stacking up” before the fight. Now that Izzy has lost, stacking will need to be a higher priority.
Drake previously won a $1 million bet that Adesanya would beat mixed martial artist Jared Cannonier. ‘Champagne Papi’ has also wagered BIG BUCKS on the Super Bowl, the NFL Draft and the Spanish Grand Prix. Sometimes he wins … other times he loses.
