The king of sports betting has struck again! Drake is known as a fan of online betting during various sporting events around the world, such as the World Cup final in Qatar this winter, and even has a reputation as a black cat among footballers. Lately, the Canadian rapper has still achieved some big hits, but has just suffered a big loss.
Drake bets half a million dollars on Israel Adesanya and loses everything!
At the start of the year, Drake hit the jackpot with Jon Jones’ triumph over Ciryl Gane, he pocketed more than a million dollars just betting on the outcome of this top fight. With a fortune estimated at around $250 million, Drizzy continues to bet large sums, last month he lost $250,000 following Natez Diaz’s defeat against Jake Paul. This loss did not calm down the singer, he bet this Saturday on a victory for Israel Adesanya against Sean Strickland except that it did not go as planned for the Canadian.
Indeed, at the close of UFC 293 last night, Israel Adesanya put his title on the line against Sean Strickland. Before this fight, the favorite Nigerian had 23 victories for only two defeats in the cage except that the American reversed all the predictions with a surprise victory. After 5 rounds, Strickland won the duel by unanimous decision and thus won the UFC middleweight title to the regret of Drake who had bet $500,000 on a victory for Izzy and therefore lost everything.
Last April, Drake had already bet on a victory for Israel Adesanya against Alex Pereira at UFC 287 and had experienced more success with the success of the Nigerian.
