It’s International Fight Week in Vegas and there are some big names battling on Saturday night in the UFC 213 combat spectacular. The best viewing parties will be in the Vegas strip clubs. There’s something primal about watching man-on-man combat in the presence of beautiful scantily-clad women you can ravish in the VIP after the bouts.
Bobby Knuckles vs Soldier of God Romero — Will Either Man Be Left Standing at UFC 213?
A bloody battle is expected between Yoel Romero, Cuban, and Robert Whittaker, Australian, for the interim middleweight crown. Romero, known as “Bobby Knuckles” and “The Reaper,” is coming off an 8-fight winning streak and is ranked #1 contender in the UFC middleweight division. Young and hungry Whittaker, an Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling who has defeated three Olympic gold medalists, is coming off a 7-fight winning streak and is #3 in the UFC middleweight rankings.
Whittaker is famous for exciting back & forth matches that he ends via TKO. Romero is coming off a highlight-reel TKO of Chris Weidman last November and a bunch of others. Bleacherreport calls Romero “a terrifying human being.”
Whittaker says he’ll control the fight, win with his brains and his plan. Romero says he’ll win with focus. Plus he’s got that terror thing on his side.
Nunes vs Shevchenko for Baddest Woman on the Planet
Amanda “Lioness” Nunes of Brazil may be the top power puncher in the women’s bantamweight division. She’s coming off back-to-back wins against Meisha Tate and Ronda Rousey, after knocking out Rousey in the first round and beating Tate in the first round by submission.
Blonde Valentina Shevchenko of Kyrgyzstan (a dish) is known as “The Bullet.” She’s a Muay Thai kickboxer known for precision strikes & clinchwork. Basically, after she figures you out she comes at you like a dervish until you crumble.
Shevchenko is a Seabiscuit kind of fighter—she tends to start slow and then come back to dominate. She lost to Nunes in March 2016 by close decision, but she says she would have won that battle with just one more minute to fight (and I believe her). That fight was only three rounds, while Saturday’s fight will be five. Nunes has to finish off Shevchenko early, or watch out.
UFC 213 will cost $49.99 on PPV. Or you can watch for free and cheer with the crowds at the great strip club viewing parties below.
Deja Vu Showgirls Open Bar Fight Party
Deja Vu Showgirl’s fight party will feature a four-hour open bar (domestics and wells) from 6 – 10 pm. That means you can drink for free through the preliminary events and continue drinking for free after the main events until 10 pm, by which time you’ll be ready to let one of Deja Vu’s dancers drag you into a private VIP room for some one-on-one fun.
$10 cover for locals. $20 for out-of-state unless you do the smart thing and get free entry by calling for the club limo. Other package deals available for couples and groups of any size. Call 702-308-4605 or text SGLV to 702-767-8118 to reserve your ride. Topless, full bar, 21+
Sapphire Hosts UFC 213 with Best Buffet in Town and Great Package Deals
Sapphire’s fight party will feature the best buffet spread in town – usually barbecue, gourmet Mexican, sushi, hors d’oeuvres, salads, something primavera, mac’n’cheese, and dessert tables the size of a bakery, all served at the proper temperature by a professional catering staff.
You’ll find multiple package deals available online for out-of-towners, starting at $60. The best deal in my opinion is the $80 package that include transportation, free entry, reserved seating, a $50 drink card, and the buffet. The club also raffles off prizes—I’ve seen them include free Skybox dances in their fight party raffles.
The admission price for locals is $20 (buffet is $15 more). Starts 6 pm. Age 21+. Full Bar. Call 1.702.869.0003 for the club limo–$15 reservation fee waived if you purchase a buy-1-get-1-free drink coupon or bottle.
