Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann helped debunk the ‘Drake curse’ as a hoax, by winning big at UFC London

Drake is an avid MMA follower, and obviously keeps track of some of the biggest fights of the year. Drake has famously supported Conor McGregor at UFC 229, and on various occasions, openly expressing his admiration for the Irish superstar. He is often seen betting big money on fights, also loosing some in the process.

Drake has conjured a reputation of being a bad luck for fighters that he supports or bets on. In the past he had famously bet big bucks on Jorge Masvidal to beat bitter rival Colby Covington, and on Justin Gaethje to dethorne Charles Oliviera as the lightweight champion. While Masvidal’s sting was extracted by the high-pressure chain wrestling of Covington, who breezed past his rival with a unanimous decision victory, Charles Oliveira dismantled Justin Gaethje in an adrenaline fueled one round fight and submitted him.

The famed Drake’s curse came to closing when Israel Adesanya beat Jared Cannonier at UFC 276. The hip-hop star had a bet a million dollars on the Nigerian.

Teammates Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann stole the show at UFC London, yet again, with their valiant performance. Both fighters had to go through some initial adversity, but found a path to victory, and quite in spectacular fashion.

Hip-hop superstar Drake who bet big bucks on the duo, made a fortune out of betting on them. Drake put over $2 million on a parlay that ended up winning him just over $3.7 million after Pimblett and McCann both scored finishes on the evening’s main card

McCann took to Instagram to send a message directly to Drake, asking if he could purchase a Rolex watch for her, and Drake responded instantaneously.

He wrote, “Rollies for Meatball and the Baddy”
