The Undertaker’s contributions to the pro wrestling world can never be forgotten. In fact, he is such a big name that he has transcended mediums and is a well-known name all over the world. Israel Adesanya paid homage to The Undertaker as well during UFC 276.

Adesanya defended the UFC middleweight title against Jared Cannonier at UFC 276. Ahead of the fight, Adesanya paid homage to The Undertaker by coming out to The Deadman’s entrance theme while wearing his iconic hat. He also had an urn in his hand, that had Cannonier’s name engraved on it.

Israel Adesanya ended up successfully retaining his UFC middleweight title via decision, much to the delight of fans. It was a hard-fought victory as well.

After the match, Adesanya made it clear that he wants his next fight to be against Alex Pereira, who defeated Sean Strickland earlier in the night

So it seems Drake did not end up cursing Israel Adesanya after betting $1 million on Adesanya. It remains to be seen if he will fight Pereira next or not.
