It was a knockout and yee-haw weekend here in The Entertainment Capital of the World as celebs gathered for the Pacquiao-Marquez fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night as well as for the National Rodeo Finals fun at Treasure Island all weekend long. And while both were entertaining enough, stars still managed to enjoy some of Las Vegas best shows and nightclubs through the jabs and wrangling. If you missed it, here’s who punched and lassoed their way through Sin City this weekend:
True Blood star Joe Manganiello attended the 9:30 performance of Las Vegas’ newest Cirque du Soleil show, Zarkana at Aria with his girlfriend, brother and dad on Friday night. The group was in town to watch Saturday night’s much-anticipated Pacquiao-Marquez fight at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Las Vegas certainly went country this weekend with plenty of National Rodeo Finals festivities. But the cowboy fun wasn’t just confined Treasure Island, in fact over at Crazy Horse III Miss July 2007, Tiffany Selby showed off her cowgirl side as she hosted the “Babes & Buckles” bash on Saturday.
