Rapper Drake wins $2.7m on UFC 287 After Betting on Israel Adesanya to win



Renowned rapper Drake has reportedly won an incredible $ 2.7 million after Israel Adesanya emerged victorious in his UFC 287 middleweight title bout against Alex Pereira.


Adesanya, a Nigerian-born New Zealander, reclaimed the 185lb title just five months after losing it to his long-standing adversary Pereira, who had previously defeated him twice in kickboxing.

However, the Drake was able to recoup his losses by placing two hefty bets on Adesanya in the rematch.


According to Mirror UK, Drake placed a $500,000 bet on Adesanya to win, which earned him a return of $885,000.

Additionally, he staked $400,000 on Adesanya to win by knockout, resulting in a massive return of $ 1.8 million
