UFC superstar Max Holloway suffered a brutal cut to his eye over the weekend during his latest fight, but that didn’t stop him from showing it off while partying with the King of Las Vegas.
We’ve obtained stunning photographs of Mr. Blessed himself hanging out at the Circa Resort and Casino in Las Vegas just hours after the stunning fight. In the picture, Holloway is posing with legendary casino owner Derek Stevens and doesn’t appear to have any issues with the injured eye.
As you know, Holloway who is deemed #1 in the UFC featherweight rankings, suffered a brutal injury during UFC 276, literally slicing his entire eyebrow in half.
We’re told Holloway and his friends were clearly having a good time taking in the fun atmosphere of Circa while chatting with Stevens. Of course, fans desperately waited for a chance to get a photo and Max stopped for anyone that wanted a photo.
Max Holloway Parties In Las Vegas Following Brutal UFC Fight Injury!
Following the fight, fans were shocked at the extensive injury and including the “cut man” having to stop the bleeding from the massive cut. “They can also put different medications on these Q-tips that actually cause some vasoconstriction, meaning some squeezing or clamping off of the blood vessels to again try to minimize that blood flow to the area,” one doctor said.
Circa was PACKED with celebrities and other stars this weekend, including WWE superstars who took their dinner plans to the finest steakhouse in Downtown Las Vegas, Barry’s Downtown Prime, located in Circa’s exclusive lower level. Bianca Belair, Montez Ford (King Tez) , Angelo Dawkins, Matthew Riddle, Austin Theory, 305 MVP, and Omos are only a handful of the wrestlers that were seen posing with Circa CEO/Owner Derek Stevens, Casino Host/former NHL player Darren Banks, and Barry’s Owner/Chef Barry Dakake. Another WWE star, Sheamus, also stopped by Barry’s to catch up with the crew.
WWE Superstars Hit Hottest Spot In Las Vegas
This powerful group of athletes let their appetites raid the kitchen, and it’s hard to determine if there was any food remaining in the restaurant after they left! WWE Champion Bianca, who won her first Raw Women’s Championship earlier this year, has successfully defended her title against multiple opponents. That being said, a celebration at Barry’s was long overdue! Chef Barry, who was amazed by Bianca’s incredible hair, had some fun posing for photos together. Later that night, two-time WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre, was also spotted at Barry’s at a table with friends. Even so, the talent in the building did not stop there!
WWE Superstar Austin Theory has had an interesting (and record-breaking) career thus far. He is currently the youngest WWE star to have ever won the ‘Money In The Bank’ contract, AND the first person to lose the championship, but win the contract on the same night! So, even though he lost the championship belt to Bobby Lashley, he ended up winning the contract and breaking a record.
Barry’s Prime Steak Dinner Turns Into WWE Smackdown!
Austin prepped for his big championship bout with a dinner at Barry’s the night before. Kudos to his friend/fellow WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil for showing him his favorite restaurant! Austin and Titus tag-teamed the restaurant’s most exceptional steaks and seafood, including their signature whole Maine lobster mac ‘n cheese. Neither of them dropped the match there. Instead, they moved on to some savory desserts. Once the pair took down the warm cinnamon rolls and carrot cakes, they were escorted to the place where all the magic happens: the kitchen.
Chef Barry happily showed them the impressive state-of-the-art equipment, as well as some aged, tender cuts of meat. As we reported, what happened next is a heated conversation that was captured on video, and is pure WWE magic! After dinner, their friend/Circa Executive Richard Wilk led them to MegaBar, Nevada’s longest indoor bar, spanning 165 feet. There, they met up with Derek Stevens and talked about wrestling, as well as the big event the next night. There was no shortage of fan photos and selfies being taken all night long.
While Circa’s core is catered toward athletes and sports fanatics, there is no shortage of actors stopping by as well. Emmy/Tony award-winning actor Eric Nelsen, best known for his role in the American Western drama, stayed at Circa for a Vegas getaway with his wife, Sainty. Three-time Super Bowl champion LaGarrette Blount, and his wife, Merissa McCullugh, also carved out time to catch up with their friends (Barry and Derek) during their time in Sin City.
Actress Kendra Lust was also spotted having dinner with friends at Circa’s pan-Asian restaurant, 8 East, where she enjoyed their mouthwatering signature lobster fried rice, and showed it off to all her Instagram followers.
What a weekend!!
