UFC Fighter Colby Covington mocked Drake after the rapper lost a $275,000 bet that the fighter would lose his match against Jorge Masvidal.
On March 5th, Covington and Masvidal had a match in Las Vegas, headlining UFC 272. Before the brawl, Drake publicly bet the $275,000 of Bitcoin using the Stake betting app.

Covington took the fight on the judges’ scorecards — 50-44, 50-45, and 49-46. After his victory over Masvidal, he could not keep making a few comments directed at the Canadian rapper.
In the post-match press conference, Covington said, “Let’s talk about all the money Drake lost tonight. He needs to go back to selling those sh*tty albums to get back the money.”
Covington also claimed that Drake should have listened to him when making the bet.

A loss that big would have some folks shaking in their boots, but we doubt Drake is worried about it. A few weeks ago, the rapper reportedly made over $1 million betting on the Los Angeles Rams to win Super Bowl LVI. Drizzy is one of the highest-paid rappers with an estimated net worth of $180 million. He is also purchasing his first property in Los Angeles, buying the $85 million former mansion of English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams.
On top of that, it looks like Drake might have a makeup dinner to fall back on.
After seeing Drake’s bet loss, Masvidal shared this tweet, offering to make it up to Drake:
Next time you in Miami dinner on me @Drake
