Drake knows how to bet and spend his money as well, and it just keeps getting better for him. He recently won a $3.7 million bet and is going to gift Rolex watches to the UFC Fighters who helped him win the bet as a “Thank You.”
Drizzy will give Rolex watches to athletes Molly McCann and Paddy Pimblett after they won their respective contests, which earned him a stunning $3.7 million in winning bets.
The Toronto rapper had placed a bet on McCann to defeat Hannah Goldy, which she accomplished with a first-round TKO, and on Pimblett to defeat Jordan Leavitt, which he did with a second-round submission.
McCann and Pimblett verified that Drake contacted them during an ESPN post-fight show. “Drake is buying me and Paddy a new Rolex,” McCann revealed on the show. Pimblett added, “We messaged him on Instagram, and he was like, ‘Yeah, you are getting a Rolex.'”
Drake has been sharing many of his bets on social media after collaborating with the sports betting startup Stake. He placed $470,000 on the Rams to win the Super Bowl in February, and another $390,000 on Odell Beckham Jr. to have 62.5 receiving yards in the game.
