Drake's Rolex promise to Molly McCann has finally come in after he won a whopping £1.2 million by betting on her and Paddy Pimblett to win both of their UFC fights.

McCann's magnificent spinning elbow knocked out Hannah Goldy at UFC London back in July, while Pimblett successfully submitted Jordan Leavitt in the second round.

Amid the two wins, Champagne Papi won a total of a whopping £3.1 million jackpot, and took it upon himself to gift the fighters a couple of luxury watches as a 'thank you'.

After the two wins, the '6 God' wrote on his Instagram story: "Rollies for Meatball and the Baddy. Secured the W & the rollie."

And finally, Drake has now followed up on his promise as McCann posed with her brand-new gold Rolex on Instagram while walking alongside Liverpool's famous Liver Building, giving a simple 'thanks' to the rapper.

Pimblett also showed off his new watch in a video he posted on Instagram last month.

In the clip, the fighter opens up a green Rolex box and says: "A what? A little something from Drake.

"Oh, s**t! Oh my... Belter! Thank you very much. Nice one for that Drake. Thank you very much. He said he'd get us a Rolex and he's got us one."

Known for putting on a few pounds in-between fights, The Baddy recently confessed that he might have an eating disorder after weighing 50lb over his fight weight on Steve-O's show. 

The UFC star made an appearance on Steve-O's Wild Ride! podcast, where he was brave enough to hop on the scales to see how much he's put on post-fight.

The 27-year-old came in at 206.6lb, which is more than 50lb over the lightweight limit. Pimblett weighed 155lb a month ago.

"I’ve had party days, you know what I mean, I’ve been bad then. I got into gambling a little and I was bad with that," The Baddy said.

"I think now it’s moved on to food, I genuinely think I’m a food addict. I think I’ve got a bit of an eating disorder because of MMA.

"The weight cuts, dieting, I genuinely think I have a bit of an eating disorder. People when they go eat with me they are visibly shocked at how much I can eat."

However, the fighter was more than confident that he can drop back into weight for his next fight.

However, the fighter was more than confident that he can drop back into weight for his next fight.

He said: "No fight on the schedule but I got my eye on the Dec. 10 card, It’s got me excited, to be honest, I haven’t been excited in a long time.

"If you share the Octagon the same night as Jon Jones you’re gonna be excited."
