Drake wins $2.7million after betting on Nigeria’s Adesanya to win UFC match


Rapper Drake from Canada is giggling all the way to the bank after winning $2.7 million bet that Israel Adesanya will win a UFC fight.

After betting $1.6 million on Adesanya to win that bout, Drake lost the bet, but in his rematch with Pereira, he made up for it.


Israel Adesanya recovered the UFC Middleweight Title when Alex Pereira was defeated through knockout.

The New Zealander, who is of Nigerian descent, regained the 185-pound title barely five months after losing it to Pereira, a fierce opponent who has twice defeated him in kickboxing.

The Canadian reportedly gambled $500,000 on Adesanya to win, which paid out $885,000, and $400,000 on him to win via knockout, which paid out a whopping $1.8 million, according to Mirror UK.

After the fight, when asked about Drake’s wager, “Stylebender” responded, “Shoutout to everyone that bet on me but you have to realize that when I step into the octagon I put my life on the line.

“That’s the biggest parlay you can ever do. I’m a betting man too so shoutout to Drake, we are about to make another deal and get more money.”

Adesanya had only had two losses prior to his victory over Pereira, giving him a total of 24 victories in his MMA career.
