Rapper Drake is no stranger to making big bets on UFC fights, and this time he’s back with a whopping $1.4 million on the line. The Canadian musician placed two bets on Nigerian-born fighter Israel Adesanya, who is set to take on Brazilian Alex Pereira in a rematch at UFC 287.
Drake’s first bet was for Adesanya’s overall victory, putting down $500,000 on the line. He also bet $400,000 on Adesanya winning the fight early. In addition, the rapper placed two bets on Jorge Masvidal, another fighter in the UFC. He put down $300,000 on Masvidal winning the fight overall, and another $200,000 on Masvidal winning the fight early.
Adesanya and Pereira first met in a kickboxing match, with Pereira coming out on top. However, Adesanya has since established himself as one of the most dominant fighters in the UFC. This rematch is expected to be a highly contested battle, with both fighters eager to come out on top.
Drake’s large bets have certainly drawn attention to the fight, and many fans will be watching closely to see if his predictions come true. Regardless of the outcome, it’s clear that the rapper is a big fan of the UFC and is willing to put his money where his mouth is.
