“On me” – Jorge Masvidal promises dinner after Drake loses 275k betting on him


Jorge Masvidal has vouched to make up for the loss that hip hop star Drake incurred, after he bet on him at UFC 272

Hip hop superstar Drake bet some big money on Jorge Masvidal, in his grudge match against Colby Covington. Masvidal’s sting was extracted by the high-pressure chain wrestling of Covington, who breezed past his rival with a unanimous decision victory.

Longtime UFC fan, Drake bet a whopping 275k on Masvidal, to no avail. While it’s not clear what odds he got for the bet, most underdog bets would have seen Drake make just over $700k.

Masvidal wants to make reparation for Drake’s loss and has committed to a dinner, anytime the Canadian is in Miami. He tweeted saying,

“Next time you in Miami dinner on me @Drake

Although Masvidal lost a fairly one-sided contest, he believes he still has a long way to go, and is not done yet.

Colby Covington is on cloud nine, ever since he battered bitter rival Masvidal, for a unanimous decision victory. He has since cranked up his usual trash-talk up a notch, and this time launched an attack on hip hop sensation, Drake.

Drake publicly bet $275,000 on Masvidal via the Stake betting app, with whom the MC has a partnership. Speaking about his lost money, Colby said,

“Let’s talk about all the money that Drake lost tonight,” Covington told the assembled press. “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 mybookie[.ag]. 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.”

Colby aims to bury all his rivalry and has called out for a fight against Dustin Poirier post-UFC 272.
