The Maloof brothers, the billionaire threesome who once owned the Sacramento Kings and the Palms Casino and Resort, just bet $880,000 that Las Vegas's own Floyd Mayweather, will take down Conor McGregor a week from Saturday right here at the T-Mobile Arena.
Us Vegas locals are betting on this bet--because if they win, the brothers promise the $160,000 in profits will go to charity.
Brother Gavin knows Floyd because they are neighbors in Southern Highlands.
Speaking of charity in Sin City, guess who is a regular packing food at Three Square, Las Vegas's food bank? Carlos Santanna. (I wonder if he sings while he works.)
Only in Vegas!
P.S. Since they don't own the Palms any more, they placed the bet at the Southpoint.
The Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School's survivor's March
"My partner and I hired Jake Soteros to be our real estate agent last year after deciding we wanted to invest in the ever evolving downtown Las Vegas housing market. I immediately thought of Jake, since he has been immersed in the downtown scene as a business owner, and also a resident, and definitely has his finger on the pulse! After completing two home purchases over the course of 4 months, having spent the previous 2-3 months searching for just the right properties, I can honestly say that Jake went above and beyond my expectations as a real estate professional! The process of searching for, making offers on, and navigating the contract process can be a roller coaster, to say the least, and Jake's calm and confident demeanor, and his knowledge of the market really helped us to maintain our sanity through some stressful times! And since we travel and work a lot, there were a couple of occasions when Jake acted as a stand-in when we weren't able to be present for an inspection or a repair. I have already referred a good friend that was interested in buying a property downtown to Jake, and she is really enjoying working with him, as well. After our first house closed, celebrating over Mexican food and margaritas, Jake told us that "cheesy as it may sound", he loves helping people reach their goals, and seeing them happy is really gratifying for him :) That absolutely comes through in his work! We are definitely happy, and ready to celebrate that second closing when you are, Jake!"
