On a UFC wager, Drake Loses $430,000.

Published

on

Rapper Drake from Canada is well-known these days for occasionally placing bets on UFC fights, generally for eye-watering sums.

Place Your Bets

But the rapper rarely has good fortune on his side. He placed bets on the UFC this weekend and lost an astounding $430,000 (£363,000).

Drake bet £169,000 ($200,000) that Kamaru Usman would beat Leon Edwards, but the British boxer ultimately prevailed.

This comes after the hip-hop celebrity earlier in the evening placed a wager on Jose Aldo to defeat Merab Dvalishvili, but that wager also lost.

The stake was worth more than the £194,000 ($230,000) Kamaru battle.

Drake had placed two bets on the Kamaru vs. Edwards match, both of which were unsuccessful.

The Canadian first wagered £125,000 ($149,000) on Nigerian fighter Kamaru to prevail through knockout. After that, he invested an additional £44,000 ($49,000) in Kamaru to win in the fourth round.

Due to the fact that the rapper frequently ends up betting on the loser, he is sometimes accused of cursing fighters.

Drake placed an astonishing £232,000 ($275,000) on Jorge Masvidal to defeat Colby Covington in his first ever public wager back in March, but Covington easily defeated the bet.

After waiting two months, the rapper decided to back an underdog, wagering £338,000 ($400,000) on Justin Gaethje to defeat Charles Oliveira at UFC 274. Gaethje ultimately dropped the match in the opening frame.

However, Drake has had some luck when it comes to UFC wagering.

The rapper eventually made things better by placing a wager on Israel Adesanya defeating Jarod Cannonier to retain his title.

Drake received the long-awaited good fortune, which netted him about £850,000 ($1 million).

Given that he recently picked British duo Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann in a double bet that netted him a cool £3 million ($3.5 million), you might have believed that his luck was changing. Sadly, his streak of success was short-lived.

Just Not His Day

Drake’s poor gambling fortune extends beyond the UFC.

He wagered £186,000 ($220,00) on Charles Leclerc to win the Spanish Grand Prix of Formula 1, but the pole-starting driver had to withdraw from the race because of an engine issue.

Before this, just being around Drake seemed to be enough to result in a disastrous sporting defeat.

Football players including Jadon Sancho, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, and Sergio Aguero have all lost games immediately after being pictured with the musician.

Meanwhile, the Drake “curse” has also affected other athletes, like Serena Williams and Anthony Joshua.

Published

on

He first gained notoriety for his roles in comedies like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Anchorman, but he has since provided a number of performances that demonstrate his talent even when he isn’t playing the comic. Steve Carell has since received praise for his work in a brand-new serial killer thriller on Disney+.

A Huge Role

He plays a psychiatrist who is held captive and chained up in a home by a patient who is a serial killer. The Patient is the name of the television program in which Domhnall Gleeson portrays Gene, the aforementioned serial killer, who eventually goes by the name Sam.

The Plot

There is enough to fit into the show’s 10 episodes, which, with the exception of the finale, run for about 30 minutes. Having recently lost his loving wife to cancer and having an estranged son whose conversion to orthodox Judaism caused family strife, Carell’s Alan is a man with darkness in his history as well. The whole affair unfolds in a sequence of memories and flashbacks.

Fans are Inconsolable over Brendan Fraser’s Role as the Villain in a Bollywood Thriller

Published

By

Fraser is an actor with a wide range of abilities, so it’s wonderful to see him having a well-deserved career rebirth.

His versatility is just over the roof

Brendan Fraser is a gifted individual. Do you want to imagine him as a brash photographer who can rip your heart in two? Take a look at him in Scrubs. What about being a daring explorer who saves the world? The Mummy is here for you. Or how about a retired racecar driver who transforms into a robotic hero? Do not underestimate Doom Patrol.

We don’t really know where the star will appear next at this moment. Although I’m very convinced that most of us never anticipated seeing him play the bad guy in a Bollywood thriller.

The three sons of a mafia patriarch battle it out for control of the family in the 2019 Bollywood crime thriller Line Of Descent, which Justin Decloux noticed featured Fraser as one of the bad guys.

Fraser portrays Charu, a gunrunner whose “illicit contacts with the Indian underworld trap him in the middle of the family implosion,” in a role reminiscent of Nick Cage.

Fans of Fraser are obviously thrilled to learn about this role, which many mainstream viewers might not have otherwise been aware of.

I haven’t seen Line Of Descent yet, but I have to say that the preview of Fraser’s performance above has convinced me that I should.

Although it also has a 4.7 out of 10 rating on IMDB, the movie currently has a very good audience score of 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. Who is to say who is in the right and who is out of it? Watching it for ourselves is the only way to know for sure. My evening is now hopefully taken care of.

The Internet Goes Wild After Will Smith’s Latest Movie Gets Boycotted by Critics

Published

on

Due to the ongoing repercussions from Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock at the Academy Awards earlier in the year, fans have had a mixed reaction to the historical action movie Emancipation, which was directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars Smith.

The Plot of the Movie

Gordon, also known as “Whipped Peter,” was a Black American slave who managed to escape the Louisiana plantation where he was kept captive in the book Emancipation. In order to avoid hunters and bloodhounds, he traveled more than 60 kilometers in ten days before arriving at a post of Union soldiers in the early 1863.

The Consequences

Even though Smith has said he understands if people don’t want to watch Emancipation, a sizable portion of folks who would not view this movie because of its relationship with Smith are puzzling fans of the actor.

Emancipation debuts in American theaters on December 2 and becomes available on Apple TV on December 9. Hopefully people would still support the film, and see the film for what it can truly be.
