Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann gained a fan in Drake after helping him clear a sizeable bet during last month’s UFC London event hosted at The O2 Arena — to the point he was was ready to gift them both brand new Rolex watches.

For context, the Grammy-winning Canadian rapper committed to a parlay / multi via crypto gambling platform Stake amounting to US$2,296,211.30 (AU$3,300,576.42) at total odds of 1.62. In order for him to see a payout of US$3,723,077 (AU$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.

“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.”

Paddy Pimblett Drake Rolex Day-Date 40 - Yellow Gold, Light Dial, Fluted Bezel

Fast forward to present day, Paddy Pimblett has posted on Instagram confirming Drake finally made good on his word by flaunting what appears to be a Rolex Day-Date in Yellow Gold with a fluted bezel and light dial.

“Belter! Thank you very much,” said The Baddy after being handed the watch – which retails for approximately AU$52,850 – during his trip to the US.

“Nice one for that Drake! Thank you very much… He said he’d get us a Rolex, and he’s got us one.”

“He would have been able to get a better watch if he bet with Barstool, he would have gotten more money. But thank you very much, really.”

On top of the Drake love, Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann were each awarded US$50,000 (AU$72,000) Performance of the Night bonuses. How good.
