UFC Back to Vegas! Nevada Commission Approves Fights

Exclusive Details

The UFC has been cleared to host fights in Vegas again -- starting this weekend -- and Dana White is fired up!!!

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has formally approved two upcoming events -- May 30 and June 6 -- to go down at the UFC's APEX facility in Sin City.

Of course, the UFC hosted 3 back-to-back-to-back events in Jacksonville, Florida earlier this month while Nevada was still shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But now, NV is opening up -- and the UFC has the green light.

We spoke with Dana White who tells us, "I am so excited to be back in Vegas!!!"

"Our APEX arena is incredible and the production value we can provide to fans is next level and it’s a safe environment for my fighters and my staff."

White says fighters, coaches, staffers and everyone else involved will all be thoroughly screened and tested -- just like in Jacksonville.

The May 30 card is huge -- Tyron Woodley takes on Gilbert Burns ... and Mackenzie Dern fights Hannah Cifers.

The June 6 card features the return of Amanda Nunes -- who's taking on Felicia Spencer.

'Tiger King' Vegas Magician Hits Up Jeff Lowe's Zoo ... For Possible Future Act

Exclusive

A famous Vegas magician is looking to pick up where Siegfried and Roy left off -- so, naturally, he went to go see the biggest cat man in the game right now ... one Jeff Lowe.

Sources tell TMZ ... Murray SawChuck -- who's got his own residency show at the Tropicana Hotel in Sin City -- recently linked up with Jeff to talk shop and discuss the possibility of obtaining some tigers for a potential new act he wants to introduce on the strip.

Our sources say Murray took note of Roy Horn's tragic passing of late, and saw an opening for another tiger magic show that he might just wanna fill ... and in light of the hit Netflix series, figured he'd get in touch with Jeff to see if there was a deal they could make.

Murray the Magician (as he's known in Vegas) ventured out to Oklahoma City to make it happen, and stopped by Jeff's 'Tiger King' Zoo -- formerly known as Joe Exotic's GW Zoo -- and toured the grounds. Later ... Jeff and Murray, with their ladies in tow, hit the town and ended up at a packed bar called Kong's Tavern, where they got the VIP treatment.

Sounds like things went off without a hitch, but we should say ... our sources say Jeff is still considering the offer and hasn't made any decisions on whether to partner with Murray.

That said, we wouldn't be surprised to see Murray surrounded by orange and black on stage in the near future.

IT'S COMPLICATED

Chad tells us he's moving to Vegas in a month or so as soon as he finds a huge house there. He says it's way easier and more affordable to fly people into Vegas where he'll have lots of bedrooms and a studio room for others looking to get into OnlyFans-style content.

Chad, as we told you last month, pimped his OnlyFans account when we wanted to get a straight answer whether he's back with Annalise or not after all their drama.

Before this news of Chad's new porn mansion was first reported by Daily Mail, you'll recall, Annalise claimed an argument in late February turned physical. Chad was arrested and charged with 6 misdemeanors stemming from his domestic violence arrest. Chad vehemently denied putting his hands on her.

"YOU'RE SCARIN' ME!!!"

But, it didn't end there. Cops made a welfare check at Chad's pad after he posted a disturbing picture hinting at suicide.

Cops determined during that visit he wasn't a danger to himself, but less than 24 hours later he was hospitalized and taken in for evaluation after posting some disturbing videos that included him telling someone, "I have no choice."

Vegas Strip Club Coronavirus-Free Lap Dances ... Is That a Promise???

Las Vegas strip clubs are NOT going the way of the city's nightclubs ... they're staying open for now, and one joint is even using "coronavirus" -- kinda confusingly -- to attract customers.

Little Darlings is shouting it out to the world on an electronic billboard -- "Coronavirus-Free Lap Dances," next to a sexy image of a dancer. Now, pardon the phrase ... but on its surface it certainly seems like a great deal!!!

We mean, who wouldn't want a lap dance ... hold-the-virus??

Then again, in these times, they should probably be clearer. One COULD read that sign as FREE lap dances in the coronavirus-era. Or, worst case scenario, FREE lap dances IF you have coronavirus. People see what they wanna see ... just sayin'.

As we told you, Little Darlings and other strip joints also tried to attract customers last week by offering free hand sanitizer bottles and such. So, the club's obviously leaning into the panic.

Then again, even if you do read the billboard as we believe it's intended -- ya gotta wonder ... is that a legally binding promise to customers that they won't contract the virus from Little Darlings??

We smell a lawsuit ... and hand sanitizer. Lots of sanitizer.

Michelle Obama Air Booty Slaps for Male Dancer ... At Christina Aguilera Show

Exclusive
GIRL'S NIGHT
TMZ.com

Michelle Obama looked like she was having a spankin' good time at Christina Aguilera's Las Vegas show ... especially when one of the dancers twerked on her!!!

The former First Lady attended Christina's The Xperience Wednesday night at Planet Hollywood's Zappos Theater, and got singled out by one of Aguilera's shirtless male dancers while she was in the middle of singing "Lady Marmalade."

Michelle didn't seem to mind -- she mimicked delivering some butt slaps before the guy moved on, and she continued to dance in her seat. In fact, she and her friends looked like they wanted more ... more ... mooooore.

We're told Obama and her group of gal pals were escorted out by security after the show ... seemingly pleased with Christina's performance.

As for why the ex-FLOTUS was in Vegas ... she spoke earlier in the day at the Ultimate Software Connections Conference, so apparently her ladies' night out was the pleasure after the business.

"What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" just doesn't apply to her.
