If Drake’s betting history has proven to be a real curse for mixed martial artists, then Jon Jones is screwed later tonight (Saturday, March 4, 2023) at UFC 285 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jones makes his first Octagon appearance in three years – in addition to his heavyweight debut – as he challenges Ciryl Gane for the vacant UFC heavyweight title. The scheduled match will feature the ESPN+ PPV card from inside T-Mobile Arena.
Ahead of tonight’s heavyweight clash, rapper Drake once again accessed his millions to place a big bet on the main event. We know all too well how Drake’s UFC betting story unfolded. There have been a few wins along the way, but for the most part Drake has lacked serious bets. Some even say he is a curse on the fighter he is betting on.
If so, Jones could be in trouble against Gane. Drake has already placed two separate $250,000 bets on Jones to stop Gane by knockout or submission. Betting for a knockout would net Drake $1.3 million while finishing the submission nets the rapper $1.7 million.
Of course, if Gane pulls off the upset, Drake loses $500,000 and Jones’ long-awaited return to action will be a complete failure. Luckily for both men, Jones is the greatest fighter of all time. And even though he’s been absent from the fighting game for the past three years, he still finds a way to win. Even if Drake’s costly endorsement casts a dark shadow.
