Drake has reacted to UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal’s retirement, referring to the esteemed fighter as a “UFC Goat,” among other things.

The 6 God took his Instagram Story on Sunday (April 9) to give Masvidal his flowers after his loss to Gilbert Burns in the co-main event of UFC 287. The loss served as Masvidal’s fourth consecutive defeat, but Drizzy still called him a “Goat and a “street legend.”

“Hats off to a great man,” Drake added.


“I love everybody here,” Masvidal said after losing his latest fight over the weekend. “This is where I started my career. It’s been a long 20 years, 50-some fights. Sometimes your favorite basketball player don’t have that 3-pointer no more. Your favorite quarterback loses that rifle. I don’t feel the same when I get in here no more. It’s been 20 long years.”

“I love this fucking sport,” Masvida added in his post-fight interview. “I’m a multi-millionaire. I didn’t start with nothing. I can say I’m good for life now.”



Drake has been an avid UFC lover for years, and an avid lover of betting on fights in particular. In November, the Scorpion hitmaker suffered a major financial loss after middleweight champion Israel Adesanya defeated Alex Pereira during UFC 281 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, costing Drake a cool $2 million.

After one particularly brutal loss last March, Jorge Masvidal actually invited Drake to dinner when he learned the Toronto-bred rapper had placed a losing $275,000 bet on him following his defeat at UFC 272.

“Next time you are in Miami, dinner on me,” Masvidal wrote on Twitter at the time.

In other Drizzy news, the 6 God dropped off his latest single “Search & Rescue” on Friday (April 7). He had previewed the track— initially thought to be called “Rescue Me” — during an episode of Sound 42’s The Fry Yiy Show on SiriusXM Radio last Friday (March 31).

Shortly after the first verse, Kim and her mother Kris Jenner are heard talking about Kim’s emotional state amid her divorce from Ye.

“I didn’t come this far, just to come this far and not be happy, remember that,” Kim says. The sample comes from the 2021 season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.



Although the sample of Kim K has had people accusing the “God’s Plan” rapper of trolling the Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West, Drake’s father Dennis Graham insisted on Twitter that his son wasn’t “trolling.”

“Drake is not trolling anyone, it’s just a song,” the 68-year-old allegedly wrote in an Instagram comment. “Why try and create a Kanye and Drake beef again???????????????”
