Boxing Champ Oscar Valdez Shows Gruesome Post-Fight Fist (Gotta See The Other Guy)

3/14/2018 10:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's undefeated boxing champ Oscar Valdez proving even winning hurts in boxing -- showing his totally jacked up fist (and face) following a big win in an absolutely brutal fight this past weekend.

Valdez gutted out a tough victory over Scott Quigg Saturday night in a controversial and dangerous bout -- mostly because Quigg came in overweight for the fight and made it a slugfest.

FYI, Valdez (24-0) and Quigg (34-2-2) were supposed to fight at 126 lbs ... but Quigg missed weight and then ballooned up to 142 lbs on fight night while Valdez DID make weight. 

Oscar won on points to keep his featherweight title, but had to have his jaw wired shut after the fight -- and judging by these recovery room pics, dude might have someone opening his sodas for a while.

As for Quigg, he also posted a post-battle photo -- and, although he does look a little like Mr. Magoo, he's not in the hospital. He did suffer a broken nose. 

Still wanna be a boxer when you grow up?!

Floyd Mayweather Has Legit Wrestling Skills ... Says TMT Bodyguards

3/14/2018 6:17 AM PDT

"Don't sleep on Floyd Mayweather" when it comes to MMA ... because the guy can REALLY wrestle -- so says Floyd's hired muscle. 

We spoke with Floyd's personal private security force -- Jizzy Mack and Greg La Rosa -- and asked them how their boss is prepping for his MMA debut. 

The guys say they haven't seen Floyd training with UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley yet -- but acknowledge "he's a beast" and would definitely be the man to get Floyd UFC-ready.

But, the most interesting part ... both guys claim Floyd has legit ground skills.

"Floyd's tough all around ... he can wrestle."

These guys spend MOST of their lives right by Floyd's side -- from traveling to the gym -- and they would know how Floyd's been training for his rumored transition into MMA.

As for Tyron, he says he's spoken with Floyd and agreed to train him -- and even spelled out how his training camp would go on "The Hollywood Beatdown."

T.J. Miller Settles with Driver He Allegedly Smacked Around

3/13/2018 4:53 PM PDT

T.J. Miller and his driver -- who he allegedly beat up after the 2 had an argument over Donald Trump -- are letting bygones be bygones ... because they reached a settlement.

According to new legal docs ... the "Silicon Valley" star and Wilson Deon Thomas III came to an agreement last Thursday that will put the alleged beatdown case to bed. It's unclear what the terms were, but we're guessing the driver got some cash from the comedian.

We broke the story ... Miller was arrested in December 2016 for allegedly striking his driver in the head and shoulder after he got mad at him for being a Trump supporter. The driver claimed T.J. was getting high on Whip-Its before the attack.

Miller dodged criminal charges, but was still facing a civil suit from Thomas ... until now.

1-Handed MMA Star If the UFC Can Accept Women They Can Accept Me, Too

3/13/2018 12:35 PM PDT

1-handed MMA star Nick Newell says his uphill battle to make the UFC ain't unlike the one Ronda Rousey and other female badasses faced back in the day ... and he's making his case for the same outcome.

We spoke to Nick after his dominant comeback fight at LFA 35 over the weekend, and he doubled down on his pitch for a UFC fight -- telling us he's done more than enough to scrap inside the Octagon.

"I'm gonna win fights there," Newell told TMZ Sports. "I'm ready to start snappin' some necks and cashin' some checks."

But Nick, who's 14-1 after his latest win, didn't sound too confident he'd get the call -- comparing his situation to the era of women's MMA before Rousey broke through.

Of course, women are now bigger in the UFC than arguably any major pro sports org. -- so "Notorious" is hoping Dana White changes his tune.

Heather Locklear Will Escape Felony Charge In Domestic Violence Arrest

3/12/2018 1:05 PM PDT

2:30 PM PT -- The D.A. has charged Heather with four counts of misdemeanor battery on an officer. She's also facing one charge of resisting or obstructing an officer.

She was not charged with hitting her boyfriend, even though that's why she was originally arrested. Heather Locklear has dodged a bullet, because TMZ has learned she will NOT be charged with felony domestic violence in connection with the fight she had with her boyfriend that landed her in jail. 

We broke the story ... Heather was arrested last month after her brother called 911 saying Heather and her boyfriend were drunk and fighting. When cops arrived they observed injuries to the boyfriend and placed Heather under arrest for felony domestic violence.

During the arrest, Heather allegedly became combative and attacked a cop, kicking 1 in the shin and striking 2 others. We're told she will be charged with misdemeanor battery on a peace officer.

Heather also screamed, "You f****** deserve your kids to die! You f****** deserve it! And when you find yourself in that position, think of me!" She also said, "I hope no one f****** burns your entire department down, your f****** police department ..." She also said, "If you ever come back to my house I will shoot you."

As we reported ... cops obtained a search warrant and were looking for a gun registered in her name but did not find the weapon. The search warrant noted Heather had a history of drug and other alcohol-related incidents, including a call in 2012 where she reported to be suicidal.

Heather is currently in a medical treatment facility. 

Nick Gordon 911 Call Shows He Cried Hysterically to Cops

3/12/2018 10:04 AM PDT

Bobbi Kristina Brown's ex, Nick Gordon, was the one who called cops and sounded frantic on the phone, claiming his girlfriend was losing it on him ... according to the 911 call.

In the audio, obtained by TMZ, you can hear Gordon crying and sobbing on the phone, saying he "sounds so lame because I'm getting beat up by a woman." He claims she threw a bottle at him. 

As we reported ... Gordon was taken into custody Saturday after police responded to a possible domestic violence incident. He told cops his girlfriend, Laura Leal, had attacked him out of nowhere ... but she claims he beat her on the ride home from a bar. 

The arresting officer says he saw visible marks on Leal and placed Gordon under arrest. He'd been released on bail as of Sunday evening. 

As for the Brown family, Bobby says he's willing to help Leal with services through the Bobbi Kristina Brown Serenity House in the hope she could avoid the same fate as his daughter. Gordon was arrested for another alleged domestic violence incident last year as well.

Gordon was under scrutiny in connection with Bobbi Kristina's death ... he even lost a wrongful death lawsuit, and is currently on the hook for $36 million to her estate.

Rampage Jackson to Manager: I Almost Got You a Crappy Used Car ... Dropped $130k Instead!

3/12/2018 12:00 PM PDT

MMA star Rampage Jackson says he came thiiiiis close to getting his manager, Tiki, a hoopty Range Rover at the used car lot ... before deciding to be a boss and drop a small fortune!

"I was thinking about going the cheap route ... you almost had a used one!" Rampage said to Tiki. "But then I was like, 'nah man, I can't cheap out.'"

FYI, the new Range was a surprise bday gift  -- after Tiki negotiated an epic new contract with Bellator. 

When we saw Rampage's video of the big reveal, our car guy (yeah, we have one of those) estimated the whip would run him at least $100k in the hole. Turns out, it was almost 130 RACKS!!

With that price tag, ya gotta think Rampage's deal was in the mils -- but Tiki wouldn't spill the beans.

He did walk us through getting the Range, though ... and it's pretty great.

Page Kennedy Arrested For Felony Domestic Violence

3/12/2018 8:00 AM PDT

A rep for Page says, "Authorities intervened in a private matter against the wishes of both parties, resulting in the arrest." He adds it was an isolated incident, and Page and the woman will address it privately "as a couple moving forward." 

The rep denies there was any abuse."S.W.A.T." star Page Kennedy has been arrested for felony domestic violence ... TMZ has learned.

The 41-year-old actor, whose credits include "Bones" and "Cold Case," was allegedly in a fight at his home Saturday night with a woman. Law enforcement tells TMZ the verbal argument turned physical and someone called 911.

When cops arrived they discovered the alleged victim had minor injuries, and that was enough for cops to cuff Kennedy and take him to the station.

He was held on $50,000 bail. He was released Sunday. 

UFC's 'Irish' Joe Duffy Conor McGregor's Too Cocky ... to Be Politician in Ireland

3/11/2018 12:28 PM PDT

Conor McGregor's a living legend to his Irish fans ... but Ireland's 2nd biggest UFC star says he is NOT cut out for a political career back home.

We asked "Irish" Joe Duffy about McGregor pulling a Trump when his fighting days are done -- something Conor teased when we got him out in NYC last month. 

Joe -- who fought and beat Conor back in the day -- was super complimentary of McGregor as a fighter, but told us why a run for office wouldn't end well for him. 

"In Ireland, people are quite humble," Duffy told TMZ Sports, "Cockiness isn't a trait they generally take to."

Joe also told us he couldn't see Conor campaigning for a fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov -- the scariest dude in their division right now ... and he made some pretty good points.

Duffy ain't the only one who feels that way ... lightweight contender Justin Gaethje basically sang the same tune when we spoke to him recently.

Tommy Lee Wants Son Brandon Prosecuted for Battery ... At Least, For Now

3/10/2018 1:00 AM PST

Tommy Lee is going forward with his criminal complaint against his son, Brandon, because he believes when you coddle a child who commits wrong, you ruin him.

Sources close to Tommy tell TMZ, Tommy wants the cops to keep investigating the battery complaint he filed against his 21-year-old son, and if he ends up getting prosecuted ... so be it.  

Tommy thinks his ex-wife and Brandon's mom, Pamela Anderson, is behind Brandon's fury ... when he punched Tommy so hard last Monday he was knocked out cold for a full 2 minutes. He's especially upset with the comment Pam made to TMZ ... "He punched him in the nose for all of us who he has hurt."

Tommy believes Pam egged Brandon on after Tommy criticized Pam on social media for going on a TV show and recounting the domestic abuse in their marriage. He thinks Pam put Brandon in such a fury, he went into Tommy's bedroom ready to fight. Brandon says he struck in self-defense.

And our sources say ... Brandon videotaped Tommy as he lay unconscious and laughed. Tommy believes Brandon sent the video to Pam as proof of performance. We're told Pam denies that.

As one Tommy source put it, the famous drummer believes, "You encourage what you tolerate, and he's not going to tolerate what Brandon did and that's why he wants the criminal case to keep moving along ... at least for now."

Deontay Wilder Time's Up for Anthony Joshua ... 'I Declare War'

3/10/2018 12:45 AM PST

Deontay Wilder is sick and tired of waiting for Anthony Joshua ... so the Bronze Bomber's calling out AJ in the most savage way possible -- by declaring WAR.

"No more excuses, no more waiting, no more dodging me ... it's time. It's time to see who's the best [...] who's the baddest man on the planet," Wilder told TMZ Sports.

You know the deal -- the world's top 2 heavyweights have been circling each other for years ... but haven't been able to strike a deal. 

But Deontay told us that's finally gonna change after Joshua fights Joseph Parker on March 31 ... 'cause there'll be no one left but him.

There's more... Wilder claims he ain't even sweating AJ, saying Luis Ortiz -- AKA the dude he just MERKED -- is way better!!

So, are fight negotiations underway?? We asked ... 

Mikey Garcia Floyd Lost A Step ... I Could Take Him

3/10/2018 12:25 AM PST

Boxing champion Mikey Garcia says he 100% believes he could beat Floyd Mayweather if they fought today ... because at 41, Garcia thinks father time has caught up with TBE.

Mikey sat down with TMZ Sports during training for Saturday's fight against Sergey Lipinets (tonight on Showtime) and when we asked who his dream fight would be against, he basically called Mayweather out.

"Now it's a different time now, 'cause he's older. I've seen his age start to get to him just a little bit."

Want more boxer-on-boxer shade? Mickey says he actually invited Floyd to spar with him once, and according to Garcia, Money wasn't having any of it.

"He was here. He was watching me spar and I asked him to get in the ring and he said he wasn't ready."


DDP to WWE Fans: Give Rousey Time ... Not Everyone's Got McGregor's Gift

3/10/2018 12:20 AM PST

Take a step back, Ronda Rousey haters -- Diamond Dallas Page says Rowdy's gonna be just fine ... even though her mic work for WWE's been sorta shaky thus far. 

"Give the girl a break, man," DDP told TMZ Sports. "It's a lot of pressure going in, but that girl thrives on pressure."

DDP would know -- the pro wrestling legend says he faced the same acting issues coming into the biz ... but eventually settled in, just like he thinks Ronda will once she gets some more reps under her belt.

Of course, some athletes are born entertainers ... and DDP says Ronda's ex-UFC bro, Conor McGregor, definitely has that gift.

"If anyone really gets the showmanship, it's McGregor."

But, will WWE fans ever get to hear Conor slay the mic inside the squared circle? DDP ain't so sure about that ...
