US based Canadian rapper Drake has won £3 million after staking £1.9m on Liverpool’s Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann to win at UFC London.
This happened over the weekend when most of us were busy relaxing, Drake was making more money.
Pimblett and McCann both won their respective fights on a raucous on Saturday night at the O2 with the Scousers fast becoming one of the most exciting double-acts in sport.
A crypto casino and betting platform revealed Drake placed a stake of £1.9m on the Liverpool duo to win their respective fights in London.
McCann claimed a stunning victory over Hannah Goldy via an elbow-spinning knockout before Pimblett secured the rapper’s enormous win by defeating Jordan Leavitt via submission.
Drake captioned the grab of his bet slip on Instagram a ‘Scousers parlay’, in reference to the city in which Pimblett and McCann are both natives.
The rapper also promised to buy the two fighters a Rolex each for their respective parts in his win.
