Logan Paul Aaron Paul's a 'Bully' ... I'd Beat Your Tiny Ass!

7/15/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Same last name ... but NO love between Logan Paul and "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul -- with Logan telling TMZ Sports he would beat Aaron's ass if they ever came face-to-face. 

Their beef goes back a few months ... when Aaron trashed Logan for his video stunt gone wrong in the suicide forest in Japan. Aaron told Logan to "go rot in hell."

Now, Logan is firing back ... calling Aaron an "Internet bully" -- and warning the actor that if he REALLY wants a piece, he'll end up getting hurt. 

Of course, Logan is training for a real boxing match against video game/YouTube superstar KSI next month in England ... and Logan tells us it's going to be one of the biggest pop culture events of the year. 

NBA's Tyler Ulis Crazy '17 Elevator Beatdown ... With Devin Booker

7/13/2018 1:51 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NBA player Tyler Ulis was attacked and beat up by 2 guys in an apartment elevator fight in 2017 ... until his friend, Devin Booker, came to the rescue ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

It all went down in Tempe, AZ on May 26 while Ulis was still playing for the Phoenix Suns. We're told Tyler was trying to hold the elevator for his friends when another group of guys tried to get on.

When Tyler continued to hold it ... they took offense and a scuffle broke out. One guy grabbed Tyler while another man put him in a headlock. The fight spilled out of the elevator and into the hallway.

A short time later, Ulis' friends -- including Suns superstar Booker -- took the elevator to the scene of the fight and found the men who attacked Ulis. Another fight broke out, Ulis threw punches.

Booker -- who covered his face with a bandana -- does not appear to hit anyone.

Eventually, the 2 groups get down to the lobby ... where another man from Ulis' crew (wearing a black shirt) chases their adversaries out of the building and punches one of the guys in the face.

You can see Booker chasing after the other men into the street.

We're told police were called to the scene, but ultimately no arrests were made.

A source close to the Suns administration tells us, "While these guys know they are always potential targets for others trying to cause trouble, it's hard to blame them for defending their friend who is on the bad end of a 4 on 1 attack."

The 46-year-old movie star took several open-hand slaps to the face on the red carpet at the 350 Days premiere in Hollywood on Thursday ... when he was ambushed by pro wrestler RJ City

The two -- who happen to be facing off at a wrestling match on July 15 -- started jawing at each other on the red carpet ... but things turned physical and RJ let them hands fly! 

The "fight" was quickly broken up and City was escorted off the carpet. 

Afterward, Arquette told us he's been training his ass off to demolish City on Sunday -- even traveling to Tijuana, Mexico to train with luchadores. 

Until then ... ice up! 

YG Arrested for Robbery ... In Vegas Casino

7/13/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

YG's facing a felony robbery charge for allegedly yanking a dude's chain off his neck and taking off with the diamond-laced pendant ... and we're told there's video evidence too.

The rapper was in a Vegas court Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest and he turned himself in. YG was hit with felony robbery and he was released after posting $20k bail. 

Vegas police tell us ... the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away by his crew. We're told the guy told YG he's not a real celeb ... and casino's surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck.

We're told the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant -- valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000 -- before taking off.

We broke the story ... the alleged victim is also suing YG, claiming he had his goons beat him up before he snatched his jewelry. The guy wants at least $250k.

LeSean McCoy Called Cops On GF In 2017 ... Over Jewelry Dispute

7/12/2018 1:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeSean McCoy called police on Delicia Cordon in July 2017 after an argument over jewelry -- with the NFL star claiming she refused to return several high-end items she had borrowed.

It's all in police reports obtained by TMZ Sports ... which show cops responded to at least 3 incidents at their Georgia home over the past year.

But the most interesting incident took place on July 3, 2017 -- when the NFL star called the Milton Police Dept. to the home after a "domestic dispute" with Cordon.

When cops arrived, they saw McCoy standing in front of a large mound of D's clothes -- and he explained that they had been having issues and had broken up after she accused him of cheating on her. 

Then McCoy brought up the issue of jewelry. Here's the quote from the police incident report.

"He went on to advise us that jewelers often times loan them high end jewelry items to wear for events. He stated that Cordon had some of these jewelry items and had not returned them."

"He stated that he has asked her multiple times for them but she has not yet returned them."

According to the police report, McCoy expressed serious concern that Cordon might make false accusations about him.

"He stated that he was trying to be very careful about being around her given the climate of domestic abuse in his profession."

Cops eventually spoke to Cordon. At the time, neither party made any allegations of physical abuse. 

The case could be relevant since Cordon claims the assailant who broke into her home and pistol whipped her on July 10, 2018 demanded specific items of jewelry. Cordon told police she believed McCoy was behind the attack.

As for the 2 other police calls to the house, Cordon called cops over a heated argument with McCoy on April 11. And again on June 1, when McCoy's mother came to the home with a crew of people to try to remove property from the house without Cordon's consent.

7/11/2018 10:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The man who attacked Pacman Jones took his official police mug shot in his hospital bed ... and TMZ Sports has the pic. 

Forget "cheese" ... say, "I just got knocked the hell out!"

You're looking at Frank Ragin -- the ABM employee who police say instigated a fight with the NFL star at the Atlanta International Airport late Tuesday evening. 

In the footage obtained by TMZ Sports, you can see Ragin aggressively step to Jones and then attack him

Once Jones found his bearings, he unleashed an attack of his own on Ragin and eventually knocked him out with an overhand right. 

Cops arrested Ragin on 2 counts of battery -- but could NOT immediately take him to the police station to be booked, because he needed to be treated for his injuries. 

Pacman was NOT arrested because cops say he was merely defending himself

The heavyweight brawler battled both guys back in 2013 -- and lost both fights -- but tells TMZ Sports there was one big takeaway ... Cormier hits harder than Stipe!

There's more ... "Big Country" says Cormier is the smarter fighter, and that will pay off big time when they clash at UFC 226 in Vegas on Saturday.

Holloway was hospitalized this week after presenting concussion-like symptoms in the days before he was set to fight Brian Ortega in Vegas. Unclear what caused Max's condition. 

But now, Max is speaking out on Twitter ... saying simply, "It was what it was."

EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Stephens has a message for Brian Ortega after the UFC star wouldn't take him on in a replacement fight at UFC 226 this weekend: "F*ck you, bitch!"

Yeah, Jeremy ain't happy.

After Max Holloway pulled out of his bout with Ortega this weekend after presenting concussion-like symptoms, Dana White offered the fight to Stephens -- but, Brian turned it down because of the short notice.

That has Jeremy livid ... with the fighter saying Ortega cares more about his hair than actually getting in the Octagon.

"I keep telling this kid, man, if you want to make money, and you want to make a name for yourself and you want to be a champion ... you have to fight," Stephens says.

"Like shut the f*ck up and fight. Ain't nobody caring about your hair, ain't nobody caring about what type of flying moves you're doing. I don't give two sh*ts what you do, let's fight."

Ortega reportedly is holding out for Holloway to get better, so he can fight for the title -- but, Stephens says he's ready for the scrap anytime and anyplace.

"If you're a fighter and you're really a true champion, it's only a matter of time until you face me."

Cormier has a secret, too ... and it has to do with Jon Jones -- admitting he'll use JJ when he's playing the UFC video game because his character is "the best guy in the game."

At the end of the day, Cormier hates Jones -- but he hates losing in video games even more! 

Cormier says he's also aware that he's a heavy underdog going into the Stipe fight ... but has some advice for gamblers out there -- the smart money is on DC, and he explains why!
