Canadian Rapper Drake loses over N600m for betting on Israel Adesanya

Canadian rapper Drake has suffered a financial loss resulting from Israel Adesanya’s defeat suffered against Brazilian, Alex Pereira in the early hours of Sunday.

Drake, according to reports, staked CA$2,000,000 on the Nigerian mixed martial artist hoping to get a win of CA$2,900,000, but it didn’t go as he expected as Adesanya was knocked out a few minutes to the end of the contest.

Adesanya had led 3-1 going into the final round but Pereira with clear instructions from his corner to knock out the ‘Last Stylebender’ did just that to hand him his first defeat in the category and third to the Brazilian.

Sharing a screenshot of the stake on his Instagram story, the God’s Plan singer wrote: “Been focused on the album I gotta get back to stacking up.”

Drake is not new to betting and losing as he had previously placed a bet on Barcelona to beat Real Madrid in October’s El Clasico. Real Madrid ran out 3-1 winners that time.
