OpTic Gaming has picked up mixed martial artist Sean O’Malley as an addition to its ever growing team of gamers and content creators.

Sean O’Malley is a mixed martial artist, with an undefeated professional record of 10-0, who currently fights in the Bantamweight division of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).

O’Malley got his big break in 2017 when he was featured on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series and picked up an impressive first round knockout victory.

He has fought twice in the UFC since then, picking up a decision victory over Terrion Ware at the finale of The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion and another decision victory over Andre Soukhamthath at UFC 222.

But MMA isn’t O’Malley’s only passion. The 23 year old is also a keen gamer and regularly streams on Twitch.tv with Fortnite Battle Royale being his current game of choice.

It’s this passion for video games that has earned him his latest big career move as OpTic Gaming announced on June 5th that the Montana native was joining its ever growing roster of professional players, content creators, and entertainers.

This isn’t the first time that OpTic Gaming has been associated with a UFC fighter. The organization used to have a sponsorship deal with MMA veteran Joe Lauzon, who fought wearing shorts with the OpTic logo on them.

O’Malley won’t be able to do that, due to the UFC’s current uniform deal with Reebok, but he will be able to promote the organization in other ways as he grinds out his Fortnite matches on an almost daily basis.

With the world of online entertainment and gaming becoming more mainstream by the day, it seems likely that deals similar to OpTic’s with O’Malley, or FaZe Clan’s with NFL player Juju Smith-Schuster, will also become more commonplace.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
