UFC stars and Octagon Girls celebrate Independence Day in huge Las Vegas blowout

Stipe Miocic's heavyweight title fight against Daniel Cormier on UFC 226 has brought the top brass of the world's leading MMA promotion to Sin City.

But while they are training to get into top shape, other fighters were able to relax at a massive Fourth of July pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Bantamweight star Aljamain Sterling looked to be in the party spirit as he posed for a photo in his swimming trunks surrounded by women in bikinis.

Flyweight Joseph Benavidez and his wife Megan Olivi smiled for pictures arm-in-arm while strawweight fighters Michelle Waterson and Claudia Gadelha had smiles on their faces.

Octagon Girls Brittney Palmer, Arianny Celeste and Jhenny Andrade brought some extra glamour to the occasion in revealing bikinis and swimsuits.

The glitzy party was just one of a number of events happening for International Fight Week, which celebrates all combat sports and ends with one of the biggest UFC cards of the year.

Fight fans are in for a treat this weekend as Cormier attempts to become just the second two-weight champion in history after Conor McGregor.

He is stepping up from light-heavyweight to challenge heavyweight king Miocic in a battle billed "The Superfight".

Miocic, 35, has a record of 18-2 while Cormier, 39, goes into the fight 20-1.
