Rapper Drake Lost a Millionaire Bet at UFC 274
Canadian rapper Aubrey Drake Graham, known simply as Drake, had a night to forget as he lost more than $400,000 at UFC 274.
The singer, songwriter, record producer and actor’s betting instincts failed him again, as he was confident that Justin Gaethje would defeat Charles Oliveira at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
Against the odds
Despite the fact that the Brazilian Oliveira did not make the required weight for the fight and thus entered the octagon stripped of his lightweight title, Gaethje was never a betting favorite, but Drake believed in him.
Prior to the fight, the Canadian artist deposited $427,000 in favor of Justin Ray Gaethje, who in case of winning would have produced more than a million dollars.
However, Oliveira applied a rear-naked choke in the first round of the fight and the referee ended the bout.
