How Drake lost £1.7million bet after Israel Adesanya failed to beat Alex Pereira at UFC 281

Canadian rapper, Drake, lost a huge seven-figure sum after placing a bet on ousted middleweight champion Israel Adesanya to beat Brazilian Alex Pereira at UFC 281 on Saturday night, November 12.

 

Adesanya, 33, was the bookie’s favourite to win the fight and would have earned Drake £2.4million if he could have found a way to victory inside the Octagon.
