9/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The biggest fight in women's MMA could actually happen -- because Dana White tells TMZ Sports ... Ronda Rousey "absolutely, positively" wants to fight Cris "Cyborg" Justino.

With Cyborg coming off ANOTHER dominating performance this weekend, we had to ask White if UFC's fastest rising superstar will finally get her wish ... a shot at Rousey.

Check out the clip ... White -- who was outside Stand Up NY -- says he's still gunning to get Ronda back in the Octagon this year -- and then focus on setting up the superfight with Cyborg.

The good news for Rousey fans -- "She's getting nasty again and her head's in the right place."

BONUS -- White is also a HUUUUUGE New England Patriots fan ... and gave his team all sorts of dap for crushing people without the use of Tom Brady.

Jose Fernandez Cops Grilling Bar About Final Hours

9/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0926_Jose-Fernandez_wreckage_apThe time Jose Fernandez and his friends spent in a popular Miami bar -- shortly before their boat wreck -- is now a focal point of the investigation into the Marlins star's death.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports ... cops have contacted American Social Bar & Kitchen to interview employees who were working late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. We're told they also want to check out surveillance videos to see if Fernandez and co. were drinking.

We broke the story -- the group was hanging out at the bar within 90 minutes of the accident.

Officials have said there was no physical evidence of booze at the accident scene. Investigators are awaiting toxicology results on the victims. Our sources say cops also got a search warrant for GPS and electronic data from the boat -- which was registered to Jose -- to nail down direction and speed when they crashed.

We're told one operating theory is the driver was attempting to go around the jetty, but misjudged it in the darkness ... at high speed.

Brody Jenner LOSES IT On Hotel Staff ... Screw You for Booting Me!

9/27/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brody Jenner is going to war with a ritzy OC hotel after he totally flipped out on 2 staffers who had entered his room to kick him off the property.

TMZ obtained this video of Brody's rage Sunday morning in the lobby of the Laguna Cliffs Marriott -- he's ripping into 2 security guards, and threatening to press charges against them. Sources close to Brody tell us it all started with a misunderstanding ... when he wanted to be let into his manager's room to grab some personal items.

When the hotel said that wasn't allowed, Brody got angry. We're told he was actually pissed about the situation, and at his manager. However, the hotel staffer thought Brody was going off on them ... and sent security to kick him out.

We're told Brody says they entered without knocking, and that was the last straw for him.

Law enforcement tells us Orange County Sheriff's deputies were called to the hotel around 7 AM to keep the peace. Deputies spoke to Brody, and eventually ... he calmly left the hotel.

Lil Wayne Young Money Loses! David Banner's Getting Paid

9/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-lil-wayne-david-banner-tmz-01Lil Wayne's record label is getting called out for stiffing rapper David Banner, and now has to hand him more than $160k.

Banner won a default judgment in his lawsuit against Young Money Records -- he said the label owed him upwards of $150k for work he did on "Tha Carter III" and "We Are Young Money" ... specifically for three songs he produced.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Young Money failed to respond in the case ... so the judge entered the default of $164,303.19, which includes interest.

We're guessing Wayne already has an idea about how to pay off that tab.

Herschel Walker Leonard Fournette Should NOT Sit Out ... Bad Look for NFL Scouts

9/26/2016 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

With Les Miles gone and LSU in disarray ... Leonard Fournette has a choice to make -- sit out for the rest of the year or play and risk injury for no real shot at a championship. 

We asked Herschel Walker what he thinks the LSU running back should do -- especially since Fournette is a projected 1st round pick with millions of dollars on the line. 

Walker is pretty adamant Fournette should suit up and play ... not just because his teammates are counting on him -- but also because it would send a bad message to possible NFL suitors. 

Beanie Sigel Knocked Out Backstage ... Meek's Homie Takes Credit

9/26/2016 2:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill and The Game's beef claimed a new victim -- hip-hop legend Beanie Sigel, who got knocked the hell out ... apparently by a guy in Meek's crew.

TMZ got this video of Beanie laid out backstage ... shortly before he was getting onstage Saturday night for Diddy's Bad Boy Family concert in Philly. You can also see a guy getting dragged out of the area ... his name is Teefy Bey, and he's a member of Meek's Dreamchasers.

Teefy's copped to throwing the KO punch, and claims Beanie had to go down because he broke the "code of ethics on the street." He doesn't get more specific.

***WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE***

It's weird because Beanie rapped WITH Meek last week on his Game diss track, "Ooouuu." Of course, he's since claimed to have written the whole thing, including Meek's verses.

In any event, Beanie still managed to perform in Philly after the knockout, and took a thinly veiled shot at Meek and co.

Cowboys Legend Drew Pearson I Love Dak Prescott ... But This Is Romo's Team

EXCLUSIVE

0926-tony-romo-drew-pearson-dak-prescott-GETTY-01Dak Prescott is good ... but Tony Romo is GREAT and Dallas will be even BETTER when he returns to the field ... so says Cowboys legend Drew Pearson

TMZ Sports spoke to the Super Bowl XII champ who tells us why he doesn't think Romo should/will lose his starting job to the rookie ... despite the fact he's been playing pretty damn well. 

"This organization really believes in Tony. What Dak is doing right now, Romo will do even better."

In fact, Pearson says Dak's impressive play is taking a huge weight off Romo's shoulders -- allowing him time to fully heal from his injury so he can return at 100%.

"When he gets back, he’ll get to prove he can perform at the same level or better than before his injury."

"There’s an old saying Coach Landry used ... and it’s that a starter doesn’t lose his job due to injury. When he gets back, he’ll get to prove he can perform at the same level or better than before his injury. It’s your job when you come back as long as you can perform at the same level."

You'll recall Brandy sued Chameleon back in July for broken promises, among other things.

We've reached out to Prescott, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Can you root for a guy who's been accused of rape? 

That's the question we asked NY Knicks superfan Michael Rapaport ... who will have to make that decision when Derrick Rose takes the court in October. 

Rapaport gives a pretty thoughtful answer -- and explains why it's important for people to remember that Rose is supposed to be presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law. 

"Hopefully, he didn’t do these things and these accusations go away."

EXCLUSIVE

0923_Chyna_tmzChyna's business manager took control of the late pro wrestler's stuff -- including a $5,000 cello -- and there's no telling what he's doing with her other valuables ... so claims Chyna's mom.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Chyna's mother is asking the court to give her power to handle her daughter's estate and to keep her "purported friend" and manager, Anthony Anzaldo, at bay.

Chyna's mom claims Anzaldo is meddling in her daughter's affairs with no right to do so. She also thinks Chyna should still be collecting royalties from over 100 film and TV credits, but Anzaldo is making it impossible for her to follow the money trail.

Mom not only wants to control the estate, but she's asking the court to block Anzaldo from "usurping" her efforts.

We reached out to Anzaldo ... so far, no word back.

Super Bowl champ Deion Branch says Louisville's Lamar Jackson has a whole lot more football domination in his future ... as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Jackson continued to make the rest of the college football world look silly this past weekend ... racking up another 7 touchdowns as his squad put the hurt on Marshall.

Branch ain't just spitballin' folks ... he told us he's talked to Jackson personally and thinks not only are the physical tools there ... but the mental makeup as well.

"After the Florida State game we had a long conversation ... listened to everything I said ... he's a sponge."
