Nick Diaz Jumped in Las Vegas ... HUGE Brawl Breaks Out

8/24/2016 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-nick-diaz-tmz-01Nick Diaz ended up in the middle of a huge brawl while partying at Hyde nightclub in Vegas early Wednesday morning ... TMZ Sports has learned.

A rep for the club tells us the UFC fighter went to a bathroom outside the club around 2:30 AM, and accidentally stumbled into another customer ... who started talking smack.

We're told Nick apologized and said he didn't want any trouble, but 3 other men then joined the first guy and jumped Nick ... who tells us, "I didn't start it. They didn't know who I was."

He tried to defend himself, and got hit hard in the head -- and then the fight spilled out of the bathroom, and out onto the Bellagio's casino floor.

The melee was insane -- the club's rep says the attackers were swinging chairs and brawling with club and casino staffers. They were eventually removed by security.

Nick told the Bellagio he didn't want to press charges, and told us, "They got the worst of it."

EXCLUSIVE

More VIOLENT THREATS in the Mickey Rourke vs. Lenny Dykstra beef ... this time coming from Lenny, who says if the two actually brawl ... IT WILL BE TO THE DEATH!!!

Nails called in to the 'Drew and Mike' podcast Monday and responded to vicious and serious threats Rourke made ... when he told us he was going to break Lenny's face if he saw him.

If you thought Lenny was going to play peacemaker YOU THOUGHT WRONG ... he absolutely unloads on Rourke calling him a p***y and saying if their fight ever does happen it can only end one way.

"Someone said he can fight and all this ... I don't know. Well, he better be able to fight ... you have to kill me motherf***er."

You gotta listen ... Lenny absolutely skewers Mickey on EVERYTHING ... accusing him of being an old, broken down, juiced up former domestic abuser.

This one is definitely 100% real.

UFC's Michael Bisping Double Duty Training for Fight on Movie Set

8/23/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's a good thing Michael Bisping can multitask ... 'cause the UFC middleweight champ says he'll be training for his next fight against Dan Henderson while shooting his new movie in London. 

Bisping locked up a role in the bare-knuckle boxing flick, "My Name Is Lenny" -- which starts filming this week. Bisping says his part will take roughly 2 weeks to complete. 

But he also has a huge fight coming up against Hendo at UFC 204 in October -- just 7 weeks away. 

So, how will he be able to prep for the fight and shoot the flick? 

"My trainer's gonna come with me. I'm still gonna train every day. Film the movie. Come back. Focus on the fight. Kick some ass."

FYI, other fighters like Paige VanZant and Conor McGregor have turned down roles to focus on training camp -- but clearly, Bisping thinks he can handle both. 

We'll find out on October 8th ...

UFC Prez Dana White Nixes McGregor & Diaz Trilogy ... 'I'm Movin' On'

8/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0707-nate-diaz-conor-mcgregor-PRIMARY-GETTY-01It's as shocking as Saturday night's fight was awesome ... there will be no Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz trilogy ... according to the man who makes the decision.

Dana White tells TMZ Sports he wants Conor to defend his title against interim champ Jose Aldo. Dana says, "The war was fun and super successful but I'm movin' on." Here's the rub -- Conor beefed up for his fight against the much larger Diaz. Conor normally fights at 145 and swelled to 168 to fight Diaz.

Dana says Conor has two options -- either fight Aldo or surrender his title to him -- or cut weight to 155 and fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title. 

Dana says under any scenario, he's closing the books on McGregor vs. Diaz.

'Rica Famosa Latina' Brawl Real Blood and Broken Glass ... Take THAT 'Housewives'

8/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Two of the 'Rica Famosa Latina' stars turned a scripted fight into a very real, very gangsta showdown that landed one of 'em in the hospital with a bloodied face.

Cast members Sandra and Victoria were taping a scene at a fashion event in Culver City when the brawl started. According to the police report, producers had planned (yes, that's how reality shows really work) to shoot the women arguing over a dress. 

We're told Victoria was supposed to throw a glass of wine on a mannequin, and then Sandra would throw a glass of wine back at Victoria.

0819-victoria-vs-sandra-rica-famosa-latina-01But Sandra went off script, according to cops ... attacking Victoria by smashing the wine glass over her head and then cutting her with the jagged, broken end. Victoria was rushed to a hospital with cuts on her head and chest.

Despite the injuries, law enforcement sources tell us neither women will be charged. They're chalking it up to mutual combat for a TV show. BTW ... way better combat than the 'Real Housewives' typically offer.

¡Esto es showbiz, chica!

Boxer Victor Ortiz Pleads Guilty In Country Concert Brawl ... Ducks Jail Time

8/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0816-victor-ortiz-tmzBoxing star Victor Ortiz pled guilty to a battery charge stemming from a fight at a Kenny Chesney concert last summer but he won't spend a minute behind bars ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant and his brother were arrested at the Rose Bowl in July 2015 after allegedly beating the crap out of a random concertgoer.

The victim says he was minding his own business when the Ortiz brothers came out of nowhere and knocked him down .... and then beat him until he was unconscious. Victor was charged with misdemeanor battery and assault.

On Tuesday, the 29-year-old boxer struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to the battery charge -- and instead of jail, he got 3 years probation. 

He's also required to complete 60 days of community service, 52 anger management classes and was told to stay away from the victim. His brother got a similar plea deal.

But the victim's war on the Ortiz brothers ain't over yet -- he sued both of 'em over the attack and is demanding a bunch of cash. That case is ongoing.

EXCLUSIVE

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... they got into a heated argument in a car Wednesday afternoon after Cassie told Diddy she wanted to break up. We're told Diddy got pissed off and suspicious enough to grab her phone and start scrolling through.

Our sources say Diddy jumped out of the car in Bev Hills -- phone in hand -- and she took off with the driver.

Diddy eventually came home and returned the phone, but then took 2 cars parked outside.

Cassie had told her mom about the phone incident before Diddy came home and returned it, and the mom called the cops on him. Cops ended up at Cassie's home and she explained she got the phone back so they left, but not before writing up a domestic incident report. However, we're told no crime was committed. 

As for the breakup, we're told they've done it before -- Justin and Selena style -- so who knows?
