The Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann fan club just welcomed Drake.
Prior to Saturday’s UFC London event, the organization released a snapshot of the music icon’s enormous bet. Drake called for Pimblett and McCann to each triumph against Jordan Leavitt and Hannah Goldy, respectively.
After Pimblett and McCann achieved finishes on the evening’s main event, Drake bet over $2 million on a parlay that ultimately netted him just over $3.7 million.
Following Pimblett’s victory, McCann contacted Drake through Instagram and asked him to buy her a Rolex watch. Drake reciprocated McCann’s request.
Drake tweeted: “Rollies for Meatball and the Baddy,” Stake is a cryptocurrency betting site that Drake is at the very least paid to promote and some even suspect is a part owner.
The athletes re-posted the story when Drake tagged them.
Despite the lack of certainty at this point, McCann was excited to discuss the encounter and prospective Rolex purchase on the ESPN+ post-fight program.
The proud Liverpudlians also praised the agreement at the evening’s news conference.
“Molly over here sends him a video right after and asked for watches and he said he’s going to give us both a Rolex.”
“So we’re swimming in it.”
Pimblett and McCann were definitely the greatest winners of UFC London, even if the pricey watches never materialize. With a second-round submission victory, Pimblett advanced to 3-0 in the UFC. On the other hand, McCann won her third consecutive match by defeating Hannah Goldy in under a round. A $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus was given to each of them.
