A 30-Litre Armand de Brignac champagne recently fetched $100,000 when it was sold in Las Vegas nightspot, XS at the Encore.
The bottle was offered on New Year’s Eve but didn’t actually sell until the following night when UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez hosted a UFC 125 after-party. Velasquez was joined by fighters Gilbert Melendez, Urijah Faber, Jake Shields and UFC announcer Bruce Buffe.
Produced by Cattier Champagne, the 80-pound bottle is equivalent to 40 regular-sized 750L bottles and was carried to the high rollers' table by two, burly men.
