Drake is down…bad. According to Complex, Mr. Champagne Papi wagered more than $275,000 of his own money on the UFC fight between Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington. And per the outlet, the $275,000 wager was made in Bitcoin on Masvidal…who went on to lose the fight. When Covington, the match’s winner, found out about the literal bath that the “Controlla” rapper took, he wasted no time in gloating about it. “Let’s talk about all the money that Drake lost tonight,” he said at a press conference. “He needs to go back to, you know, selling those s—y albums to get back the money.” He continued: “You suck at sports betting.
