Officially, UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya broke the "Drake curse" with his dominating victory over Jared Cannonier.

The Last Stylebender kept his 185lb title by unanimous decision on Sunday morning at the main event of UFC 276 Las Vegas.

After Drake's $1 million bet on him beating Cannonier, Adesanya was stunned

Fight fans were concerned that Drake's dominance in the division would end. Drake had FaceTime with him - who placed a staggering $1million to see him beat the Killa Gorilla.

Given the history of fighter losing after hanging out and betting with him, their concerns were justified.

Conor McGregor lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in the fourth round. This was after Drake walked him to the UFC 229 weighins in 2018.

Jorge Masvidal, a fan favourite, lost in March's grudge match against Colby Covington after the star of 'Over' placed a staggering PS223,000 ($275,000!) bet on him.

After Drizzy had placed PS346,000 on Justin Gaethje to defeat Charles Oliveira, the former interim lightweight champion was left with a severe cold.

Drake made the bold wager during late-night FaceTime calls with the rising superstar.

During the call, the 'Hotline Bling" star stated: "Bro. I already know when it is. You know what? I put a light milion up."

Adesanya was still reducing weight for official weigh-ins and asked: "Light mil?"

Drake responded: "A light mil. Drake replied: "A light mill. The return on investment is a guarantee."

Later, the Canadian said that he just wanted to wish him good luck.

"You know that I love you brother. You're different. Bro, you're a completely different man.

"I have deep, deep, profound, deep love for you and deep respect." Deep love and respect.
