Are you looking for the best place to watch UFC 197: Cormier vs Jones 2 in Las Vegas? Look no further than Sapphire Las Vegas!

EDIT (4.6.16):

UFC announced today that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been forced off the UFC 197 card due to an injury to the interosseous membrane in his left leg. As a result, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will fight No. 6 Ovince Saint Preux for the interim championship in the main event of UFC 197 on Saturday, April 23 in Las Vegas. [via Thomas Gerbasi – UFC.com]

Jon “Bones” Jones caught a break at court on March 23 following a traffic stop where he did not have his registration or insurance on his person. “Bones” did, in fact, have the documentation proving he was covered and registered when he arrived to the court room. In light of this discovery, the judge deferred Jones’ sentence, allowing him to fight in UFC 197. [source: mmamania and bloodyelbow]

UFC 197: Cormier vs Jones 2 Breakdown

The UFC 197 event is expected to be headlined by a UFC Light Heavyweight Championship rematch between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones. The two fighters met previously at UFC 182 in January 2015 with Jones defending his title via unanimous decision. Subsequent to that victory, Jones was stripped of the title and suspended indefinitely from the UFC in connection with a hit-and-run incident that he was involved in. Cormier replaced him and went on to defeat Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 to win the vacant title.

Why Sapphire Las Vegas Is The Best Place To Watch March Madness Final Four

Here are 5 reasons why Sapphire Las Vegas is the best place to watch the March Madness Final Four:

Hotels are jammed, and so are their sports books. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Las Vegas hotels reached 97.7% capacity during the first week of March Madness 2013. These figures trumped the 86% recorded during the 2014 Super Bowl. Sports books will be packed without a doubt. Meanwhile, Sapphire Las Vegas is the largest gentlemen’s club in the world. Sapphire’s huge showroom is sure to comfortably accommodate you, your friends, and hundreds of Sapphire Gems.

 

Pizza, Beer, and Wings. Nothing really says “Let’s watch basketball” like ice-cold beer and hot greasy food. During March Madness, Sapphire Las Vegas offers all of the classic viewing party staples including wings, beer,and hand-made pizza.

 

HDTVs EVERYWHERE. The walls of the Sapphire Showroom are covered with HDTVs and massive 100” HD cinema screens with surround sound. Rest assured that whichever of our comfortable lounge chairs you choose, you would have the best seat in the house.

 

Girls. Girls. Girls. Sapphire has been voted Best of Las Vegas three years running and has hundreds of beautiful women to greet you when you walk in. At any time during the game, you can enjoy a private dance with any of our entertainers. Or, if your team is depending on you and you can’t take your eyes off the screen, our gorgeous cocktail servers will bring you perfectly mixed drinks along with any delicious item off our Sapphire Grill menu.

 

No one does the Final Four like Sapphire does the Final Four. With our spacious showroom, massive array of HD screens, hosted open bar for the final championship game and buffet in the first half, private dances, and our hundreds of gorgeous girls nightly, it is safe to say that no venue in Las Vegas can compete with our Ultimate March Mayhem Viewing Party.

UFC 196: The Odds Are Stacked…Against Conor McGregor?! Miesha Tate “Ready” For Holly Holm!

Dos Anjos vs McGregor

Watch UFC 197 in Las Vegas - McGregor vs Dos Anjos, Holm vs Tate

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

If you haven’t already heard, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has moved up a weight class since winning the featherweight title. Not only that, but he received an immediate shot at the champion, Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 5.

Breaking News:

Rafael Dos Anjos has broken his ankle and cannot participate in UFC 196.

Conor McGregor is still fighting. His new opponent, Nate Diaz, has been confirmed.

Check out the Official UFC.com Fight card below:

UFC 196: McGregor vs Diaz UFC 196: McGregor vs Diaz UFC 196: McGregor vs Diaz

Nate Diaz

Nate Diaz made his debut in the Ultimate Fighter 5 series, featuring lightweights at the time. He now fights in the welterweight class and holds a professional record of 19-10-0.

The original title fight for UFC 196 was Werdum vs Velasquez, but do to injuries, that specific title fight was also canceled.

McGregor promises that he will become the third multi-divional world champion in UFC history, but he’s also making one thing clear — the lightweight division needs him, not the other way around.

With back to back championship fights in two weight classes, Conor McGregor isn’t wasting any time in achieving his multi-title goals. Rafael dos Anjos better bring his A-game, because McGregor sounds confident.

Ups and Downs

Contrary to what you might have expected, McGregor (19-2) has opened a plus-120 betting underdog to dos Anjos (25-7), who opened a minus-150 favorite, even after Mcgregor’s brutal 13 second KO over Jose Aldo in UFC 194. (lines via MMAOddsBreaker.com)

“I originally opened the [McGregor] line on Dec. 20 and early action was on McGregor,” Kalikas told ESPN.com. “The line has since settled at minus-130 for Dos Anjos.

McGregor has momentum, however, Dos Anjos is riding a five fight win streak, including a dominant five round performance with Anthony “showtime” Pettis, and impressive victories over Benson Henderson and Donald Cerrone.

UFC 196: Holly Holm vs. Miesha Tate

Holly Holm shocked the world and became an overnight sensation with her underdog knockout against Ronda Rousey in UFC 193.  The odds in UFC 193 were 8-1 against underdog Holm, and now she is the favorited to win in her fight against #1 contender Miesha Tate.

UFC 197: Holm vs Tate - Sapphire Las Vegas

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Miesha Tate is currently ranked No. 2 in UFC’s official rankings, in-part due to her four-fight win streak, which includes victories over former title challengers, Sara McMann and Liz Carmouche.

Tate gave her reasoning why this is a great matchup, to address the demand of the UFC fanbase for a Rousey vs Holm rematch:

“I am the No. 1 contender. I’ve been the No. 1 contender and I worked my ass off to get to be the No. 1 contender. The thing is she’s [Ronda Rousey] going to be out too long and I’m ready to go and I think Holly’s ready to go so let’s set it up in the mean time. When Ronda comes back she’ll have a quality champion to face.”

Holm gave her thoughts on a bout with Tate to FOX Sports when she was in Las Vegas for UFC 194 back in December:

Miesha Tate’s a whole different fight than Ronda. Every fighter’s different. I feel she has a pretty well-rounded game, she’s kind of one of those scrappy fighters from any position.”

Miesha Tate is known for her extensive knowledge of ground-based arts including wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and submission defense. In 2011 Tate won the Strikeforce Bantamweight Championship by becoming the first woman to ever submit Marloes Coenen in an MMA bout. In UFC 183, Tate out-grappled Olympic wrestling medalist Sara McMann for the win. Following her first bout with champion Ronda Rousey in 2012, Rousey described Tate as “much more savvy on the ground than I anticipated.”

Rousey is expected to challenge the winner of Holm vs. Tate when she’s healed up and finished with whatever appearances/advertisements she has promised her time to.
