Drake lost R13 million bet against Dricus du Plessis


Canadian rapper Drake lost $700,000 (about R13.3 million) after betting that defending champion Sean Strickland would retain his UFC middleweight title.

As the South African champion walked out of the ring, Drake’s hit song God’s Plan played at the venue.

Du Plessis returned to his social media account with a message of gratitude.

“History has been made. This is Africa we fear nothing and certainly no one!! Thank you South Africa, it’s an honour representing our beautiful nation.”

Meanwhile, people poked fun at Drake’s loss, as this isn’t the first time he’s suffered a loss after betting.
