Drake Loses $550K On UFC 274 Bet
Rapper Drake has lost yet another UFC bet.
Drake shared his hefty wager on Instagram ahead of UFC 274 on Saturday, which was a $550,000 bet on Justin Gaethje to beat Charles Oliveira in the main event. Oliveira ended the fight early in the first round with a rear-naked choke.

Drake could have taken home $1.3 million.
This isn’t the first time the “Drake curse” has hit the UFC.
In March, he lost $275,000 by betting on Jorge Masvidal to beat Colby Covington after a bitter buildup to the main event. Covington told Drake it was a bad decision during the post-fight press conference.
“Drake, you suck at sports betting. Go back to your s— little albums and rapping,” Covington said at the time.
The rapper also backed Conor McGregor at UFC 229 and showed up at the weigh-in, donning the Irish flag. McGregor lost that night to Khabib Nurmagomedov by submission.
