After placing a $400,000 bet on Jake Paul, Drake has not placed a whopping $500,000 bet on Jon Jones to beat Ciryl Gane at UFC 285.

On Saturday, Drake shared two bets on his Instagram page, suggesting that he had wagered $500,000 on a Jones victory, with $250,000 going towards a possible submission and the remaining $250,000 going towards a knockout.

Interestingly, Drake will not be winning any money if Jon Jones wins the Heavyweight showdown with Gane via a decision.  

Regarding Drake's betting history, he has consistently struggled to predict MMA fights, which is why the label "curse" has persisted with him.

Drake notoriously wagered a staggering $2 million on Israel Adesanya to defeat Alex Pereira, but "The Stylebender" was finally defeated by knockout in the fifth and final round. Also, he has lost wagers on Jose Aldo, Justin Gaethje, and Jorge Masvidal in the past.

The most recent loss on Drake’s portfolio came during the Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury fight. Jake Paul even addressed the bet from Drake and jokingly said that it was Drake’s bet that made him lose the fight against Fury.

The leg break curse of Jon Jones

The Drake curse might not be the only thing that Jon Jones has to worry about. There has been a picture floating around on social media which features Conor McGregor, Chris Weidman, Anderson Silva and Jon Jones. Interestingly, only Jon Jones is the one that has not broken a leg inside the octagon on the list.

Some fans are predicting that it is a cursed picture as well and Jones should watch out his leg when he steps into the cage against Gane in the UFC 285 main event.
