Let the romance rumors begin!
The brawny Crank stud, I'm told, first noticed and was introduced to the Girl Next Door when she strutted her stuff as an honorary ring girl at the UFC fights at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
And it didn't end there...
A couple of hours later, Statham checked out Madison's performance in the 10:30 p.m. showing of striptease-filled Peepshow at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
A source reports that the two were "getting to know each other" during the wee hours over drinks at Strip House.
No word on how late they stayed out, but on Sunday at 9 a.m., Madison posted on her Twitter page that she was off to church. "Sleepy. :-)," she wrote.
Statham and some buddies had flown into Sin City to attend the UFC 100 with Planet Hollywood founder Robert Earl. Perhaps he was also toasting his next likely gig. Variety reports that Statham is in final negotiations to star in Blitz, a thriller about a serial killer targeting police officers.
Also in Vegas this weekend was Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, who had dinner with boyfriend Sebastian Stan on Saturday at Rare120 before heading over to Body English, where she performed some tunes from her upcoming album.
