Drake has UFC fans worried after sticking a huge $250,000 bet on Leon Edwards to beat Colby Covington on Saturday night by knockout.

Many fans believe that Edwards could be the latest victim of the ‘Drake curse’, with the Canadian rapper exceptionally unlucky with his sporting bets.

It was only September when Drake last tasted defeat after losing $500K on Israel Adesanya at UFC 293, who was beaten by Sean Strickland.

Drake’s allegiance to sports has claimed other victims, too, including Anthony Joshua, Sergio Aguero, Conor McGregor and Jadon Sancho.

The One Dance singer took to Instagram to post a picture of his bet slip which showed him slapping a massive $250,000 on Edwards to beat Covington by knockout.

The returns would see him win $1.2million – but fans are concerned.

One wrote on social media: “Colby will win brutally. The Drake curse strikes again.”

Another said: “Damn why he do Leon like that for?”

A third posted: “No Drake please no… take the bet back, Drake. Please Drake, not Leon… please.”

While this fan said: “Thanks for the jinx! Colby definitely winning now.”

And another wrote: “God dammit, drake. We wanted him to win. Does he ever consider betting on the guy and or team that he doesn’t want to win?”

Edwards is a huge fan favourite in the United Kingdom after his dramatic victory over Kamaru Usman in London at UFC 286 earlier this year in March.

It saw Rocky defend his UFC Welterweight title, which he will do again when he takes on Covington in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

American fighter Covington drew criticism this week when he brought up Edwards’ late father in a press conference.

As tempers flared, he said: “I’m bringing you to the seventh layer of hell. We’ll say ‘what’s up’ to your dad while we’re there.”

Edwards reacted by launching a water bottle at his head before security kept them both at bay.

Rocky was 13 when his father died after being shot in a London nightclub.
