Drake is anteing up yet again ahead of this weekend’s UFC 278 pay-per-view (PPV) card live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. But this time around the millionaire rapper isn’t putting money on the main event.
While UFC 278 will be headlined by a welterweight rematch pitting reigning UFC champion Kamaru Usman against Leon Edwards, Drake is more attracted to the bantamweight clash between Jose Aldo and Merab Dvalishvili. When you can get the former UFC featherweight champion at +200 odds it’s not something you should pass up.
This time around, Drake is putting a cool $238,000 on Aldo to pull out the win over Dvalishvili this weekend on UFC 278’s PPV main card. If victorious, Drake’s estimated payout is over $515,000. The bet was shared via UFC’s social media count earlier today. Check it out below: Drake is no stranger to betting big on UFC fights. Last month, the famous rapper dropped a few million on Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann to capture wins at UFC London. He ended up banking a pretty hefty payout. Before that, though, Drake was in a bit of a nosedive after losing sizeable bets on Justin Gaethje at UFC 274 and Jorge Masvidal at UFC 272.
While Aldo is the betting underdog for his clash with Dvalishvili the Brazilian veteran has a tremendous opportunity to capture his fourth-straight win at 135 pounds. Dvalishvili relies heavily on his wrestling and takedowns, but with a 90-percent takedown defense rate Aldo could have the upper hand to keep this fight standing and do what he does best.

Those arent +200 odds. Payout and win are two different things.

Looks like a typical +115 to me.

It’s like they need celebrity betting to promote the sport

I can’t watch a minute of MMA without hearing about betting odds.

This sport is exciting enough to stand on its own.

It always was.

I think Drake here is affiliated with this betting site so is just promoting his own shit.

And yes, UFC has been pumping bet shit too non-stop so I guess they’re all working together.
