After conquering the only man to defeat him, Cruz headed over to Studio 54 to celebrate his triumph in style. Cruz was all smiles on the red carpet and posed playfully with sexy, bikini-clad Tropic Beauty Model Search Contestants and his prized belt. Cruz was joined on the carpet by BLINK-182 drummer Travis Barker who congratulated him on the win. The twosome, both sporting black Famous Stars and Straps shirts, posed for photos outside the energized venue.

Inside the iconic nightclub, DJ Kid Jay kept the party rocking with hits like “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. Cruz and Barker continued to hang out in a private VIP area overlooking the packed nightclub while Cruz reveled in his triumph along with a large group of friends, including fellow UFC fighter Brandon Vera.

Meanwhile, fan-favorite Wanderlei Silva celebrated his 35th birthday and return to the cage after more than a year at Tabú Ultra Lounge following his match against Chris Leben. Silva was met outside the venue by a flock of faithful fans and after posing for photos on the carpet, took time to shake hands, sign autographs and even pose for photos.
