On Saturday, July 2, fighters Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski celebrated their big UFC 276 wins with an after party at the famed XS Nightclub inside Wynn Las Vegas.
The support of both fighters was showcased by the attendance of fellow fighters including Sean O’Malley, Kamaru Usman, Francis Ngannou, Nate Diaz and Cincinnati Bengal’s quarterback, Joe Burrow.
Adesanya and Volkanovski arrived at the popular nightlife destination at 1:15 a.m. and were greeted with an over-the-top welcome including giant letters that spelled out “champions,” oversized photos of each fighter, confetti, an LED drumline and the DJ shouting on the mic “give it up for the champs…Adesanya and Volkanovski in the house.”
The two champions jumped on stage with the iconic UFC belt to address the crowd of sold-out fans, then began to dance and sing to Kanye West’s song “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
Many well-known fighters arrived throughout the evening and were seen posing for photos, enjoying VIP bottle service with Don Julio 1942 and Grey Goose, and celebrating until nearly 4 a.m. This was the after-party to be at in all of Las Vegas.
