Kardashian, who made things ‘Instagram official’ with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker last month, was joined by her fella for the showpiece.
And at one point during the fight, the 45-year-old musician was spotted reaching out for the 41-year-old KUWTK star’s hand.
As the heavyweight showdown played out in front of them, the couple casually enjoyed cocktails while occasionally checking their phones.
Ngannou, who claimed victory with a thunderous left-handed punch, celebrated his triumph by raising a fist and facing the small VIP crowd.
And that also included Hollywood star Fox and her rapper boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.
Ngannou was dominated by the part-time fire-fighter in their first meeting three years ago at UFC 220.
But the devastating power puncher exacted his revenge with a brutal second-round KO last night and was instantly called out by Jon Jones.
Jones, who is gearing up for a move to heavyweight, was watching the 265lb showdown from the comfort of his sofa and made his intention to face Ngannou clear moments after seeing him claim the strap.

He tweeted: “Let’s play baby.”
Bones then followed up that tweet with one urging the UFC to meet his demands for a pay rise.
He added: “Show me the money.”
UFC president Dana White is open to making the fight but claimed Jones should consider dropping to middleweight after seeing Ngannou separate Miocic from consciousness.
During the post-fight press conference, he said: “If I’m Jon Jones and I’m at home watching this fight, I’m moving down to 185.”

Meanwhile, despite only VIP spectators being allowed in on Saturday, UFC opens its doors again to fans next month.
MMA fans snapped up tickets for UFC 261 – and were then warned they could die by attending the event.
Dana White’s promotion is opening its doors for the first time in over a year next month in the US.
Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal’s welterweight title rematch will headline the April 24 extravaganza at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
A total of 15,000 tickets went on sale for the show this week, which also includes flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko’s defence against Jessica Andrade.

Demand was so high they sold out within minutes of being released, setting a record for the largest gross gate.
Some of those lucky enough to get their hands on one are now trying to cash in with tickets being resold on the black market for 20 times their face value.
But a hefty financial outlay may not be the only price fans pay for entry, with UFC reminding those set to attend of the grim potential risks involved in heading to the show.
The tickets included fine print that warned of possible exposure to and contraction of Covid-19.
