The likes of Tom Brady, Jake Gyllenhaal, Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian were all in attendance at UFC 285 last weekend. But it seems like Alyse Anderson really caught the eye with the ONE Championship atomweight star looking stunning in a cream coloured dress.
Anderson has a big fight of her own coming up. She is taking on Stamp Fairtex at ONE Fight Night 10 which is set for the 1stBank Center in Broomfield on May 5th.
That will be ONE Championship’s first ever event in the US. But the UFC has been putting on shows thee for quite some time and Anderson was octagon side for the biggest of the year so far:

She would have witnessed the biggest upset in the recent history of women’s MMA. The seemingly unstoppable Valentina Shevchenko was submitted in the fourth round by Alexa Grasso.
Anderson will need to pull off an upset of her own if she wants to beat Stamp, who is currently the #1 ranked contender at atomweight. Tom Brady and Jake Gyllenhaal probably won’t be there for that one but with the likes of Demetrious Johnson and Sage Northcutt on the card it is sure to attract a big crowd.
There were 19,471 people in attendance at UFC 285 to see Jon Jones win the heavyweight title. The controversial star was returning after a lengthy absence from the sport due to a series of well documented issues.

Jones has failed numerous drug tests in the past, testing positive for both recreational drugs and PEDs. He has also been arrested numerous times for either drunk driving or domestic violence although the charges for the latter were eventually dropped.
But he remains ‘the greatest of all time’, at least according to the UFC who declared that Jones was the best fighter ever in the aftermath of this win. He replaces former heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou who left the promotion after being unable to come to terms on a new contract.
Ngannou is currently the most sought after free agent in the game. It is not clear what the heavyweight’s next move will be but he has been linked with a big money boxing match against Tyson Fury.
