Molly McCann has shown off the £40,000 Rolex given to her by Drake after she helped end his betting curse with a UFC London victory.
The Meatball was backed to beat Hannah Goldy in July of last year as well as Paddy Pimblett to beat Jordan Leavitt to the tune of £1.9million by the Canadian rapper.
With McCann winning by TKO thanks to a spinning back elbow and punches, her Next Gen MMA team-mate won by submission by rear-naked choke – with the pair calling on Drake for a reward following his run of betting disasters.
INTERVIEW: Molly McCann thought she was 'done' after brutal defeat before UFC London return
Appearing on Capital Breakfast before her UFC London return against Julija Stoliarenko on July 22, McCann showed off her gold Rolex worth in the region of £40k.
She said: "Imagine waking up… you've already got nerves. A full sell out crowd [is] coming to watch and then the Drake curse is on you because everyone [he's] always bet on had ended up losing.
She added: "I don't think about losing but in that moment I thought: 'What if in that moment I lose him two and a half mill there'."

The 33-year-old won three consecutive bouts to catapult her to UFC stardom before coming up against the surging Erin Blanchfield – who executed her gameplan to perfection in New York.
Speaking ahead of her return to London against Julija Stoliarenko on July 22, McCann explained how she changed her mindset to give her a newfound passion for success.
McCann said when asked by Daily Star Sport how she responded to the defeat: "I thought I was done. I was that wounded.
"I had eight weeks out and my shoulder was dislocated and f***ed but I gave four months of my life for that and it didn't even get to three minutes."
She added: "When you don't get the result you want it burns. Daniel Cormier, not that I'm liking myself to his accomplishments, he said when he lost to Jon Jones he had to let it burn and feel it. Mine was the same.
"I had to be okay to being Molly McCann and not the Meatball."
