Drake captioned the post, “One of the most inspiring guys to me…the death note author himself and my partner with @stake @stylebender BIG FIGHT TMRW…got a million on it.”
Drake said, “I already know the time it is. You know I put a light million up? I wasn’t playing.
“You know the return on investment it’s a lot,” he said to the mixed martial artist before wishing “good luck” and telling him that he loved him.
“You’re different. You’re a different guy, and I have a deep, deep, deep level of respect for you,” the chart-topper continued.
Adesanya said he saw Drake live in Oakland before and wished that one day the artist could see him live.
Champagne Papi said, “That’s a guarantee. I gotta walk you out. You know, it’s crazy, I’ve never walked anyone else before. I gotta walk you.”
The two agreed to stay in contact.
