Official UFC 194 Afterparty at Foxtail Nightclub


After the UFC title fight ends, head over to the Foxtail Nightclub inside SLS Las Vegas for the official afterparty, with host, Conor McGregor. His last appearance at Foxtail Nightclub in July was one of the summer’s biggest bashes, so you can be assured that this is going to get wild…especially if McGregor emerges victorious. But even if he doesn’t retain the UFC title, he is Irish, so you can still expect plenty of drinks to be poured either way.
