A huge crowd gathered to see the fighters as they posed for photos and signed autographs for fans. Once inside the stylish boutique nightclub, the group was escorted to their VIP table, elevated above the venue.

Velasquez smiled and waved to partygoers as DJ Kid Jay introduced him to the crowd. The victorious fighter took in the moment while songs including “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled, “The Motto” by Drake featuring Lil Wayne and “Be Faithful” by Fat Man Scoop featuring Faith Evans, among others, played at the crowded club.

Velasquez and his friends continued to party late into the evening, staying at the Las Vegas hot spot until the early morning hours as DJ Kid Jay and Tabú’s sultry go-go dancers kept the crowded club on the dance floor all night long.
