UFC 264 has proven to be a night to remember inside and outside the cage.
Addison Rae gets a UFC gig?
Social media influencer Addison Rae had a rough night to kick things off after joking she was a new UFC correspondent.

The Twitter backlash was quick and furious for this tweet — as was her job.
Jake Paul Will Be in the Building
It’s time to cue the “F**k Jake Paul” chants. The YouTube star, who will box Tyron Woodley next month — and recently got some Conor McGregor jewelry — will reportedly have a seat at the T-Mobile Arena.
There Will Be Blood
Charles Oliveira Arrives in Style
UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira showed off the perfect accessory to his gold jacket Saturday night: His UFC lightweight title.
(Even though his last name is totally misspelled on that custom nameplate.)

Alexander Volkanovski Strikes Out
We’ve all been there, but things did not work out in the UFC featherweight champion’s favor Saturday night at UFC 264.
Thought I’d put a little bet on Ryan Hall than accidentally added a zero so we winning big or losing big! #ufc264— Alex Volkanovski (@alexvolkanovski) July 11, 2021
Alas, Ryan Hall was knocked out in the first round.
Blue Screen of Death
It had to happen during one of the most anticipated fights of the night - Niko Price vs. Michel Pereira. A blue screen came out of nowhere to cause panic to all MMA fans, and it appears, Tatiana Suarez.
People didn’t want to miss a moment like this.
Tai Tuivasa Stealing The Show
Not only did Tai Tuivasa score his third straight win, he did so via a spectacular 67-second knockout of Greg Hardy after coming out to Wannabe by The Spice Girls (likely the first UFC fighter ever to walk out to the famous U.K. girl power group).
And of course, it was all capped off by a signature shoey.
