Drake Promises Paddy Pimblett & Molly McCann Rolex Gifts After Winning $5.3M UFC London Bet

Drake Paddy Pimblett Molly McCann Rolex UFC London

Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann are quickly gaining an international fan club, which now includes Drake after helping him clear a sizeable bet during this past weekend’s UFC London event hosted at The O2 Arena.

The Grammy-winning Canadian rapper committed to a parlay (or multi) via crypto gambling platform Stake amounting to US$2,296,211.30 / $3,300,576.42 at total odds of 1.62. For him to see a payout of US$3,723,077 / $5,351,554.60, The Baddy needed to defeat the 10-1 Jordan Leavitt while Meatball Molly needed to prevail over fellow flyweight Hannah Goldy.

After showcasing some late-stage dominance in Round 1, Pimblett would submit Leavitt via rear-naked choke in the second round and – true to his promise – teabagged his opponent a la Call of Duty. Ms McCann, on the other hand, repeated history with another TKO finish by way of a vicious spinning elbow against Goldy, followed by several unanswered punches.

It was almost enough to make up for the headlining bout between heavyweights Tom Aspinall and Curtis Blaydes; the former forced to withdraw in front of a home crowd after just 15 seconds of competition due to a “freak” knee injury. And an even greater outcome for the beloved Scouser duo after Drake promised them gifts of the Rolex variety.

“Can I just throw out there to ESPN, Drake – did I say before? – I know, I’m drunk… Drake is buying me and Paddy a new Rollie each,” Molly McCann revealed during her post-fight interview.

“We’ve just been messaging on Instagram and he’s like, ‘Yeah — you’re getting a Rolex each for that,'” interjected Paddy Pimblett.

6 God himself posted on his account: “Rollies for Meatball and The Baddy.”

On top of the Drake love, both Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann were awarded US$50,000 / AU$71,870 Performance of the Night bonuses.

Drake curse be damned.
