Las Vegas turned into a stomping grounds of epic proportions last weekend when stars from all walks of life flew into town to watch Conor McGregor deliver a vicious beat down on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. The A-listers, which included stars from the WWE, UFC and even the Marvel Cinematic Universe, all had the same idea before the fight and headed downtown to the D Casino Hotel for dinner at the famed Andiamo Italian Steakhouse.
Among the famous faces, WWE Superstar Karl Anderson and his wife were seen posing for photos with legendary porn star Kendra Lust.
Also stopping by Andiamo for some of their world-class steaks was former WWE Superstar and current “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Bautista. Bautista was dining with his longtime wrestling friend, Titus O’Neil, and the two ran into UFC honcho Dana White.
It was also Bautista’s birthday weekend, and the 51-year-old could be seen the following night sitting with a front-row seat during UFC 246, and was featured on camera many times during the evening while screaming his face off and rocking a cowboy hat.
It wasn’t only the big boys who came out to play during the big fight weekend, because some of the UFC’s other stars made sure to stop by Andiamo, including ring girls Arianny Celeste and Britney Palmer. We’re told the girls hosted a dinner at the award-winning restaurant for a few of their friends on Friday night after the McGregor vs Cowboy weigh-in. The girls were seen posing with a delicious looking creme brulee, which is one of Andiamo’s most popular desserts.
After all the stars finished their meal at Andiamo, they made sure to head downstairs to catch a photo with The D Casino owner Derek Stevens. Stevens, who is currently constructing the Circa Resort & Casino nearby in Downtown Vegas, regularly hangs out at The D’s Longbar and mingles with the customers as well as the celebrities.
Of course, the celebrities making their way downtown to The D is thanks to veteran casino executive Richard Wilk, who has been the celebrity liaison in Sin City for years.
