NFL's Koa Misi Allegedly Bashed Clubgoer In Head ... Cop Says

5/26/2016 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0526-koa-misi-gettyMiami Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi raised hell at a Florida nightclub -- knocking down a clubgoer with a massive strike to the head ... before trying to run from the scene, this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

The report was filed by a Ft. Lauderdale police officer -- who says he was working a detail at Cyn Nightclub around 3:41 AM on Sunday morning when he witnessed Misi and some friends get into an altercation with another group.

FYI, Misi is in the middle of a 4-year $17 MILLION contract

The cop says it appeared as if the parties were going to separate and leave -- but "Misi and other members of his group charged toward the nightclub entrance [at the other group]."

The cop says "I witnessed Misi strike [the victim] in the head, causing him to fall to the ground."

Then it gets crazier ...

The cop says, he was able to "force" the 6'4", 250 lb linebacker to the ground and told him to sit in place while he tended to the victim.

But Misi allegedly blew off the officer's orders and tried to run ... that is, until super cop "executed a leg sweep to bring him to the ground."


The officer says several of Misi's friends tried to pull him away and help him escape -- but the cop was able to fight them off until additional cops came and helped him handcuff Misi. 

The victim was loaded up into an ambulance -- but told cops he did NOT want to press charges. 

Misi was detained but not arrested. He was released on scene and so far, no charges have been filed.

5/26/2016 6:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"The Ultimate Fighter" winner Julianna Pena says being a famous UFC fighter comes with a target -- telling TMZ Sports men have tried to pick fights with her in bars to prove their toughness.

Pena, however, says guys with "beer muscles" are a real issue -- but says she's learned to deal with it.

BTW, in case you haven't seen that Bisping video, here you go ... and warning -- DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!!! 

Tyson Beckford, DJ Ruckus Bloody Fight Over Shanina Shaik

5/23/2016 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0523-tyson-beckford-shanina-shaik-dj-ruckus-TMZ-01Tyson Beckford got into an all-out brawl with DJ Ruckus over the "Bro Code" ... TMZ has learned.

It happened Thursday at Up & Down nightclub in NYC. Tyson and Ruckus have had ongoing beef over Shanina Shaik. Tyson, who was friends with Ruckus, was dating Shanina, broke up and then Ruckus hooked up with her. So, you can see why things have been tense between the guys.

We're told Ruckus saw Tyson in the club, flipped him off, and then Beckford went over to Ruckus and said if he had beef with him they should "take it out in the street." That's exactly what happened.

We're told the fight was violent.  At one point Tyson was on top of Ruckus, pounding away, when one of Ruckus' friends began punching Beckford in the head.  

It didn't end there. Ruckus punched Tyson in the groin, and Tyson returned the favor with his knee. A doorman called the cops, and by the time cops got there the 3 men were gone. No arrests were made.

We got video outside the club, where you can see the fight starting to brew -- but because there were a ton of cops patrolling that area, we're told Ruckus and Beckford moved the action a few blocks away.

The photog says he left to avoid further confrontation. Chris flatly denies his guy hit anyone, or in his words ... "It's a lie, lie, lie, lie."

5/19/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner is the queen of Hollywood, so it follows that the palace guard can seize cameras of photogs who dare to shoot her royal highness. 

Kylie's hired muscle grabbed our photog's camera outside TCL Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. ... just after she walked out with rumored BF PartyNextDoor.

The security guard bumbled down the street, perplexed as he tried deleting the footage.   

The security guy apparently got frustrated a block away, and gave the equipment to one of Kylie's friends. Our photog then took it back.

It's a ground view of how the rich and famous roll.

UFC's Alan Jouban Odor's Punch Was Dope 'Set the Bar' for Sports Brawls!

5/17/2016 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rougned Odor's fist of fury is making waves over in the UFC ... where welterweight bad ass Alan Jouban was praising the Texas Rangers star for the clean shot he delivered over the weekend. 

Jouban -- who's a Versace model when he's not fighting (hence the killer good looks) -- says non-combat sport athletes like baseball, soccer and basketball players usually SUCK at fighting ... but Odor proved everyone wrong! 

In fact, Jouban says he "kind of set the bar for the rest of the combat sports world."

Jouban also praised Jose Bautista's chin (dude took the shot and didn't go down) ... but says in the future, it's probably smarter to NOT get blasted in the face like that.

Juvenile, who was in town for the Legends of Southern Hip Hop tour, left as did the customer. Cops didn't come until an hour later and we're told they didn't take a report since no one was there to complain.
