This weekend’s UFC London card was already a big enough night for hometown fighters Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann. Both won their respective main card bouts and subsequently won $50K bonuses for Performance of the Night.
But their post-fight rewards aren’t ending there. Apparently, rapper Drake is giving the two fighters a Rolex watch each after winning a $2M wager on them.

McCann and Pimblett also confirmed their new shiny gifts at the ESPN post-fight show, where they said they sent a message to the musician on Instagram.

“Drake is buying me and Paddy a new Rolex,” McCann said.
“We messaged him on Instagram and he was like, ‘Yeah, yous are getting a Rolex,’” Pimblett interjected.
The 32-year-old McCann (13-4), who is on a two-fight win streak, defeated Hannah Goldy that night via first-round TKO. As for the 27-year-old Pimblett (19-3), he is on a five-fight win streak, with his last three happening in the UFC. He defeated Jordan Leavitt via second-round submission to collect his third straight Performance bonus.
