Liam Payne, Niall Horan At UFC 196 In Las Vegas? Nate Diaz Or Conor McGregor Support?

Is Niall Horan in America and spending all of his time with Liam Payne?

The One Direction hiatus means that fans are constantly wondering where the gents are since they have managed to get separated since the beginning of 2016. However, there is change in the air, and after a stint in Australia, Vietnam and the Philippines, Niall Horan is now allegedly in America -- and about to team up with Liam Payne.

According to Fan 2 France, Niall Horan might be back from vacation in Thailand … and could be in Los Angeles.

In addition to being at an observatory in Los Angeles, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Niall Horan was also shown playing soccer in L.A. over the early days of March, according to alleged fan photos posted on Twitter by users like @WW1DUpdates.

There are also photos of Niall Horan in Los Angeles with Robbie Keane and his son.

Alternatively, Liam Payne has been much easier for fans to keep official track of, and now that the BRIT Awards are over, it appears that Liam Payne is back in Los Angeles.

Since they are both in the same city, it has also been rumored that Liam Payne and Niall Horan could be taking the day to go to Las Vegas on March 5, for the UFC 196 event. According to Ireland Joe, there are alleged to be several top celebrities at the event in Las Vegas -- and Liam Payne and Niall Horan will not be alone.

In the past, Niall Horan has shown a lot of support for UFC events and

In fact, in July 2015, Niall Horan did a video interview with the news in Chicago of him doing a Conor McGregor impression, according to MMA Junkie. Does this mean Niall Horan and Liam Payne will be rooting for Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz at the UFC 196 event?

Interestingly, Niall Horan and Liam Payne will likely avoid Conor McGregor because the UFC champ was recently cited for using racist slurs during a Los Angeles match, according to the Review Journal.

Regardless, could this just be another rumor about Niall Horan and Liam Payne that does not officially pan out outside of alleged Twitter photos posted by fans?

As far as actual proof about Niall Horan and Liam Payne being at the UFC 196 event in Las Vegas on March 5, Melty Fan Espana has cited a TMZ document that clearly shows Liam Payne and Niall Horan will be attending.

For fans that want to join these One Direction gents at the UFC 196 event, it should be noted that Liam Payne and Niall Horan will likely be in secure seating at the higher rates. About the tickets for UFC 196, CBS Las Vegas says tickets have skyrocketed in the 48-hours before the match and state "The 'get-in' price is set at $233 for an upper bowl seat and a median price of $890."

What also could be exciting for fans is that their joint venture to Las Vegas could be some serious bonding time for Liam Payne and Niall Horan … but is this also a sign of "Liall" or "Niam" relationship evolving?

One of the downsides of the One Direction hiatus for some fans is the fact that there are fewer instances to analyze the relationships between the individual members of One Direction because they are scattered.

For instance, Fan 2 France made great pains to stress the impact that the One Direction hiatus is having on "Larry Stylinson" and "Ziam" fan fiction -- and Liam Payne or Niall Horan uniting in Las Vegas could provide serious sustenance to "Niam" fans.
