The multi-platinum recording artist is known for his infamous curse, according to which elite athletes and boxers who receive his assistance tend to lose important competitions. And despite posing with Conor McGregor prior to their battle against Floyd Mayweather and losing several significant bets this year, his luck has been particularly awful for MMA fighters. Despite Jorge Masvidal’s long odds against Colby Covington in March, he originally bet $275,000 on him. By unanimous vote, the previous world title contender was soundly defeated.

It’s the kind of movement typically seen in ocean documentaries, but don’t be deceived by the elegance. He can move quickly with a fast jab, twist his body to avoid a takedown attempt, or wait for the ideal moment to attack with a slashing elbow blow. His strength is comparable to a laser-guided whip.
