Hip-hop superstar Drake has won $3,723,077 placing bets on the victories of British Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann at the UFC London fights at the O2 Arena.

In a post shared on his Instagram story before the fights, the four-time Grammy Award winner showed his betslip for UFC London with a stake totalling $2,296,211.30 at 8/13 odds.

He captioned his post ‘A scousers parlay’.

Both fighters won. Paddy Pimblett won his UFC 277 fight against Jordan Leavitt in the second round and then broke down in tears as he revealed the recent death of his friend by suicide.

‘Meatball’ Molly McCann also picked up the 13th win of her MMA career with a first-round knockout of Hannah Goldy following a decisive spinning elbow.

Shortly after Pimblett’s win, McCann took to Instagram to send a message to Drake, asking if he could purchase a Rolex watch for her, and Drake responded in kind.

“Rollies for Meatball and the Baddy,” Drake wrote. He tagged crypto betting platform Stake, who then re-posted the story with the caption, “Secured the W & the rollie.”

Drake previously won a payout of over $1million when UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya defeated Jared Cannonier to defend his title earlier this month.
