Drake is a veteran musician and is well aware of how desirable he really is when it matters. He also has a lot of interests besides music and that includes women. While Drizzy gets a lot of attention from women from all walks of life. He loves betting on every kind of fight, but it does not always go in his favor. However, Jon Jones finally broke the ‘Drake curse’ after his massive FFC 285 title win.

Ahead of UFC 285, the rapper placed a $500,000 bet on Jon Jones to win via knockout or submission in his upcoming fight against Ciryl Gane. Naturally, many fans started joking that Drake was going to lose more money again.

Drake had the potential to earn a payout of either $1.7 million or $1.3 million, respectively. As previously mentioned, rapper Drake has gained notoriety for losing high-stakes bets on MMA fights, leading to the nickname “the curse.”

In one particularly notable instance, he lost a $2 million wager on Israel Adesanya to defeat Alex Pereira, who ultimately won the bout by knockout in the fifth and final round. Drake has also lost bets on other fighters, including Jorge Masvidal, Justin Gaethje, and Jose Aldo.


Despite his high-profile losses, Drake has also had some successful wagers over the years. He made a significant parlay bet on Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann prior to their fights at UFC London, which he won. He also correctly bet on Adesanya in a previous UFC fight at UFC 276.

However, as everyone knows by now, Jon Jones defeated Ciryl Gane in dominant fashion in the main event of UFC 285 and became the new UFC Heavyweight Champion. As pointed out by a fan on Twitter, Jones helped break ‘the curse’ as Drake has now won $1.7 million.


It appears that Jon Jones breaking the ‘Drake curse’ is a significant moment for both the rapper and the MMA community. Despite his previous high-profile losses, Drake’s faith in Jones paid off, and he won a considerable sum of money as a result.

It remains to be seen whether this victory will mark a turning point for the rapper’s betting luck or whether the curse will continue in the future. Nonetheless, it was an exciting moment for both Drake and Jones fans alike.
