9/12/2016 6:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


8:50 AM PT -- The folks at Power 106 say Chris was yelling at a guy who was in a section of the arena where he didn't belong, and they support what he did.

update_grey_gray_barChris Brown was full of piss and vinegar at a charity basketball game Sunday, getting in a heated, prolonged argument with someone in the stands ... intense enough for cops to get involved.

Chris was at the Power 106 Celebrity Basketball Game at USC, when he became visibly upset. It's hard to hear what the beef was about because of loud music, but you hear one of the USC cops say, "I don't care who's here, get it straight."

Chris also refused to stand during Tank's rendition of the National Anthem. He didn't kneel ... he sat. And he was anything but solemn ... yukking it up.

Jean-Claude Van Damme doesn't just talk the talk when it comes to MMA fighting -- he's a REAL athlete who coulda competed in the UFC back in his prime ... so says Roy "Big Country" Nelson

Roy isn't just an accomplished UFC fighter in his own right -- but spent some quality time with JCVD on the set of the upcoming "Kickboxer: Vengeance" flick.

And with Van Damme recently lecturing UFC fighters about how weak their leg strikes have become -- we had to ask Roy if he thinks JC could back up his tough talk.

For the record, Van Damme is an accomplished martial artist -- who won several fights as a teenager before becoming an action star.

There's more ... we also asked Roy how he'd fare in a showdown with Hafthor Bjornsson -- the MASSIVE guy who plays The Mountain on "Game of Thrones."

The 400-pound Bjornsson famously had a sparring session against Conor McGregor -- but Nelson says he'd get CRUSHED against someone his own size.

American Airlines tells TMZ it's still investigating Emilie's claim she had one of her 3 carry-on bags forcibly ripped from her while boarding a flight Thursday at LAX. The extra bag was for the pump, which she's allowed to bring since it's considered a medical device.

AA says it's apologized for the inconvenience.

Brock Lesnar is DONE in the UFC -- and will never fight in the Octagon ever again, despite his hopes for a comeback ... so says Alistair Overeem.

Overeem is one of the few guys who actually beat Lesnar during his MMA career -- so when we saw him at LAX, we asked if there was a chance we'd ever see a rematch.

Problem is ... according to Alistair, we'll never see another Brock match, period -- following the drug allegations surrounding UFC 200.

You can see in the video Alistair has A LOT more he wants to say ... but bites his tongue.

It's interesting considering we just got Brock out earlier this month and he told us a UFC return was still a possibility
