Após Drake perder aposta de R$ 2,5 milhões, equipe de MMA faz apelo ao rapper
Após Drake perder aposta de R$ 2,5 milhões, equipe de MMA faz apelo ao rapper.

The ‘curse’ associated with singer Drake manifested itself once again last Saturday, the 9th.

Recognized for his tradition of betting on fights involving some of the biggest stars in combat sports, the rapper invested the sum of 500 thousand dollars – approximately R$2.5 million – in Israel Adesanya‘s knockout victory over Sean Strickland at UFC 293 .

But he ended up losing a significant amount and thus adding yet another failure to his already extensive list of misadventures in this sector.

Now, there are those who are apprehensive about the artist’s next foray into the world of betting.

It seems that the ‘American Top Team‘ team and gym, one of the main ones in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) today, is also aware of this situation.

In a relaxed manner, the team launched a request to the Canadian rapper on Twitter.

Considering the notorious ‘curse‘ associated with Drake, the team, located in Florida (USA), good-naturedly requested that the artist exclude his athletes from his future bets.

Although rapper Drake was unsuccessful this time, he has made significant sports betting predictions in the past.

It is important to mention that it has a partnership with the betting company, Stake.


In June, Drake risked a staggering $800,000 on an NBA-related bet. He was confident that the Denver Nuggets would defeat the Miami Heat.

On that occasion, his prediction came true and Denver won the NBA title for the first time in its history.


On the other hand, Drake won a large amount by betting on a UFC fight. In March, he pocketed $1.7 million on a $500,000 bet after Jon Jones submitted Ciryl Gane to become UFC heavyweight champion in Las Vegas.

World Cup

Drake also bets on football and believed that Argentina would beat France in regulation time, with a score of 2-1.

Although he guessed the winning team, Drake lost a million dollars on that bet.
