Drake is a man of many expensive hobbies. However, betting in UFC fights usually gets the superstar in hot water sometimes.

Drizzy placed a bet over the weekend on the UFC 278 main event between Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards that cost him over $200,000. Usman was knocked out by a vicious Edwards leg kick with less than a minute to go in the final round to win the welterweight title.

Things got interesting In his post-fight press conference. After winning the belt in the underdog victory over Usman at Salt Lake City’s Vivint Arena, Edwards called out Drake and the detractors.

“Next time, bet on me and get me one of them Rolexes they gave Paddy [Pimblett] and Molly [McCann]. Send one my way [Drake],” he said.

Edwards is referring to Drake promising Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann two new Rolexes after he cashed in on $2 million worth of winnings on their recent fights with betting.

With the Stake partnership app, Drake bet about $200,000 that Usman would defeat Edwards via knockout, which paid out close to three to one odds. Usman earned the first loss of his UFC career this weekend.
