Say this about Drake; if you make him money, he will take care of you.
The rap star made a promise to hook up a couple of UFC fighters, Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann, with Rolex watches as a token of his appreciation for helping him win $3.7 million.
Both fighters are rising stars in UFC, especially in the UK, and when the UFC was in London last weekend, Pimblett and McCann were fan favorites who stole the show.
Both won their matches, sending the crowd into a frenzy, and both were so impressive that they pocketed bonus checks of $50,000 for winning the “Performance of the Night.”
Here’s how Drake enters the story. He placed a parlay worth a little north of $2.2 million, and of course, he bet on Pimblett and McCann to win their matches. Because it was a parlay, it meant if both won, his payout would be $3.7 million. Not a bad payday.
When McCann learned how much Drake won, the fighter sent a DM on Instagram to Drake, asking for a Rolex.
Hey, it never hurts to ask, and the fighters went big on their request, which Drake responded to. So he’s taking care of them for taking care of him.
