Drake is one of the most popular pop artists today. For his talents, the Canadian rapper has a large following all over the world. Drake’s interests are not restricted to the music industry; because he also enjoys betting. Colby Covington, a UFC fighter, recently slammed Drake after he bet against him.
After betting $275,000 on Covington losing his grudge match against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272 on Saturday night 5th March, the UFC fighter has called out the 6 God. Drake used the online betting platform Stakes to place a bet for 7 Bitcoin, which is roughly $275,000 in today’s money.
But it didn’t work out for him, and Covington won the fight by unanimous decision. The UFC champion made sure to trash talk the OVO rapper during the post-fight news conference.
“Let’s talk about all the money that Drake lost tonight. He needs to go back to, you know, selling those shitty albums to get back the money. He should have went to America’s Pick of the Week by [betting website] mybookie. I tried to give the people the pick of the week. I’m America’s champ, and I was America’s pick of the week.”
“Drake, you suck at sports betting. Go back to your shitty little albums and rapping.”
