The charity poker tournament Laliberté started, The Big One for One Drop, had an $18 million first-place prize. Pro Antonio Esfandiari won it July 3, with Britain’s Sam Trickett taking second for $10 million. Trickett later Tweeted that after he was celebrating late that night, he was assaulted by six guys outside a club. According to the New York Post, that was 1 Oak, where he and Esfandiari had burned through 20 bottles of Dom Pérignon Luminous to the tune of $10,000.
Fighter Chael Sonnen may not have been able to handle Anderson Silva in July 7’s UFC 148, but he didn’t let a cut-up face stop him from partying that night at Tabu. Then again, showing up with fresh fight wounds to the club is probably the right play.
