Las Vegas has unfortunately gone dark as the city joins the list of places trying to flatten the curve on the spread of COVID-19, however, days before the crowds dispersed, some of the fiercest ladies in the UFC were enjoying some last-minute fun.
UFC ring girls Brittney Palmer and Arianny Celeste were two of the stars spotted at the D Casino Hotel in downtown Las Vegas. They stopped by one of their favorite restaurants, Andiamo Italian Steakhouse, on the heels of UFC 248 going down at the nearby T-Mobile Arena.
We’re told the stars enjoyed some of Andiamo’s classic entrees, including delicious pasta dishes, and some yummy crème brûlée.
Along with the ring girls, one of the UFC’s top female fighters were seen having dinner at Andiamo. Current Women’s Flyweight champion, Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko, was joined by her sister, Antonina “Pantera” Shevchenko.
They enjoyed dinner with coach & trainer, Pavel Fedotov and her famous “Hollywood Smile” dentist Steve Kim.
Valentina was also celebrating her 32nd birthday, which was pretty evident by all the desserts stacked in front of the Kyrgyzstani-born Peruvian MMA star. Valentina’s current record is 11 -2 and considered one of the best female fighters in the world.
The D plays host to countless UFC stars, but they’re also catering to another type of celebrity as social influencers and fitness models make their way into the aether of stardom.
Fitness model Nicole Laurell, who has over 1 million IG followers, recently stopped by Andiamo to indulge in calamari, pasta, and filet mignon … along with some giant King Crab legs.
Nicole regularly showcases her workouts on social media, so luckily she wasn’t worried about burning off the delicious meal!
The D Casino Hotel was one of the many casino resorts who closed their doors this week as part of a response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Casino owner, Derek Stevens, sent out a message to customers on IG as Vegas business owners hope that they will be allowed to resume business in the coming weeks.
“I’d like to thank our loyal guests for their support and all of our employees for their hard work during this crisis. Although this is a devastating time for our country and our community, I’m confident the Las Vegas resiliency will allow us to rise again, stronger than ever,” Stevens wrote.
