Silver Star Casting Company and UFC Magazine hosted the official UFC 114 pre-party and the industry’s who’s who danced the night away at the legendary Vegas hot spot.

Hundreds of fans gathered outside Studio 54 to snap pictures of the red carpet excitement and yell for their favorite fighters.

The band of fighters was playful on the carpet as Guida passed around an In-N-Out Burger paper hat as a photo prop. Joey Villasenor definitely wasn’t shy around the flashing lights, as he struck many different poses for the camera. UFC’s longest-reigning champion, Anderson Silva, strutted onto the carpet dressed in a casual red polo and Marvel Comics flat-billed hat. He was all smiles as he took in the iconic party scene. Silver Star owners Luke and Charis Barrett, of Playboy fame, played host to the knock-out kings. Charis tantalized onlookers with her skin-tight bright white dress with black gladiator stilettos. Sexy DJ Colleen Shannon also sizzled in her barely there pink halter dress.

Moving the party inside the famed Studio 54, the UFC family of fighters enjoyed the exclusive VIP lounge with their entourage of colleagues and friends, while DJ Loczi spun hits to keep the masses on their feet.

“Veteran Voice of the Octagon” Bruce Buffer kept it rowdy when he took the mic used his infamous announcing skills to welcome the crowd, and exclaiming, “Now it’s time to PARTY!”
