Daniel Cormier to Jon Jones: Sorry, Bro ... We Ain't Gonna Be Friends

8/17/2017 9:50 AM PDT

Daniel Cormier just rejected Jon Jones' friend request -- but the good news ... it sounds like they don't hate each other as much as they used to.

Remember, the animosity between the two was legendary -- they trashed each other for years in public and in private and called each other every bad name in the book. 

But after Jones defeated Cormier at UFC 214 in July, JJ offered the olive branch -- and then told TMZ Sports he hoped the two would be friends one day.

Well, Cormier finally responded Wednesday night on FS1's "UFC Tonight" -- and politely declined the offer.

"Friendship would be very difficult for us to achieve because of our history," Cormier said ... "And I'm okay with that. I've always said that we don't have to be friends."

Cormier says he respects Jones as an athlete -- and still wants another rematch.

"In terms of going forward, we will be professional because we have to ... until the cage door closes again."

Floyd Mayweather Sr. Rips Justin Bieber 'He Don't Know Boxing!'

8/17/2017 6:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather Sr. is coming out swingin' at Justin Bieber -- saying the pop star doesn't know a DAMN THING about boxing if he thinks Conor's gonna go the distance.

Remember, Bieber -- Floyd Jr.'s longtime friend -- recently shot down the idea that Mayweather would K.O. McGregor ... and that ain't sittin' too well with Floyd Sr.

"Justin Bieber ... he don't even know boxing," Floyd's dad told us at LAX ... "He knows Floyd. But he don't know Floyd like I know Floyd."

Floyd Sr. also went in on Vegas gamblers putting their money on Conor -- saying they're crazy ... and a bet on Floyd is like taking free money!

Papa Mayweather also says he thinks his kid should STOP FIGHTING after Aug. 26 -- because if he keeps taking on challengers, someone is eventually gonna knock his ass out! 

'RHOA' Star Peter Thomas Spin-Off Show in the Works with Bravo

8/16/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Peter Thomas -- the guy who brought a knife to a ... well ... fight -- could be getting his own spin-off show after splitting from Cynthia Bailey on 'RHOA.'

Production sources tell us Peter and Bravo started filming a pilot focusing on his club in Charlotte, NC, Club One -- think "Vanderpump Rules."

We're told the show will cover Peter's life owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup with Cynthia last year on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' We're told it's highly unlikely Cynthia will come on as a guest.

You'll recall ... Peter pulled a box cutter on Kenya Moore's ex, Matt Jordan, in March during a brawl the 2 had in the middle of a radio interview. At the time, he claimed self-defense.

We're told the network is happy with what it's seeing and it's looking like the show will make air.

Hey ... why wouldn't it? The drama's so thick, you could cut it with a ... forget it.

Floyd Mayweather No Sex Before McGregor Fight

8/16/2017 5:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says he's putting business before pleasure -- and won't have sex before he fights Conor McGregor.

It's an old superstition that's been around the boxing game for years. You remember Mick from the 'Rocky' movies famously said, "Women weaken legs."

Floyd seems to agree. Conor McGregor has a different strategy.

"That is most certainly a superstition that I do not abide by," Conor told Conan O'Brien back in 2015 ... "I definitely have as much sex as possible."

So, to bang or not to bang? That is the question ...

Justin Bieber Floyd's My Boy, But ... He Ain't KO'ing McGregor!

8/15/2017 1:00 AM PDT

Even Floyd Mayweather's closest friends don't think the boxer has a real shot of knocking out Conor McGregor next weekend ... just ask Justin Bieber

Mayweather told the media last week he's gunning to finish the UFC star long before the 12th round when they clash on August 26. Tons of boxing experts are also predicting a K.O.

But not Biebs. 

The singer hit up Runyon Canyon for his own workout when he poo-poo'd the knockout talk -- though it's clear he's still pickin' Floyd to get the W. 

Bieber's been hardcore Team Mayweather for years -- and even walked the boxer into the ring for the Pacquaio fight.

That man's Aljamain Sterling ... who told the guys on TMZ Sports (weeknights on FS1) he's coming hard after Cody 'cause the UFC champ took a shot at him after a rough loss -- saying Alj "broke" in his fight with Bryan Caraway.

"Eventually he's gonna have to meet his maker. That maker's gonna be me," Sterling tells us.

Sterling's coming off a HUGE win over former bantamweight champ Renan Barao ... but tells us he has another guy on his hit list before he takes out Cody.

As for Garbrandt ... the champ's got a date with T.J. Dillashaw on tap for later this year.

Breaking News

A "Unite the Right" rally in downtown Charlottesville has been met with protesters, and so much violence erupted ... the governor declared a state of emergency.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe made the declaration Saturday morning amid clashes between white nationalists and thousands of protesters. City officials deemed the rally an "unlawful assembly" and state police equipped with riot gear cleared Emancipation Park.

Video of the violence shows brawls, tear gas being used and people holding weapons. Several arrests have been made and so far at least 2 people have reportedly been injured.

This comes on the heels of an alt-right march in Charlottesville Friday night, which was met with opposition by hundreds of UVA students. The white nationalists are rallying to oppose a plan to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee from the park.

EXCLUSIVE

Spencer Pratt went on the attack Tuesday night, putting a famous British comedian in what looks like a vicious head lock.

Spencer was goofing, we assume, just outside the Ivy in the bougie part of L.A. where Keith Lemon was begging for mercy.

It's a little weird ... 2 grown dudes rolling around in the grass, clearly for the cameras. Soon-to-be-father Spencer -- courtesy of Heidi -- sure looks like he's applying pressure. And, Spencer's death stares are definitely WWE worthy.

Donnell Rawlings Alleged Assault on Chappelle Fan Caught on Video 'We Asked For Privacy, Son!'

8/8/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dave Chappelle and Donnell Rawlings are in the middle of a crazy, violent fight triggered by a guy who was determined to get pics of Dave.

Thurston Greer shot the video, obtained by TMZ. We broke the story ... Greer was somewhere in the vicinity of a bathroom early Friday morning at the Soho Grand Hotel in NYC when he spotted Dave and tried taking a pic, but he was blocked. He says he went outside to do a Facebook post, talking smack on Dave and Donnell, when he ran into them and he says Donnell struck him.

Dave and Donnell say the guy was trying to get pics in the bathroom, they told him no but he persisted and got aggressive. Donnell insists he never laid a finger on Greer and in the video you don't see Donnell ever make contact with the guy.

But the video is insane, and the fight seems to last forever ... lots of n-words hurled back and forth.

As we reported ... Donnell's wanted by police for questioning.

Greer says he was injured in the altercation, citing a sore back, neck and head ... among other scrapes and bruises. 

Robert Horry Punches Thrown At Basketball Tourney

EXCLUSIVE

Robert Horry got in a fistfight at his kid's basketball tournament this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

It all went down Saturday afternoon at the Nike 3ON3 tournament at L.A. Live ... where Horry's son was playing.

Witnesses tell us a man affiliated with the opposing team was heckling Horry throughout the game when he approached R.H. and pushed him.

Horry responded with his fists ... throwing several punches at the man. It's unclear if any of the punches landed.

We spoke to Horry who insists he was simply defending himself.

"The guy was trash talking the whole game. He shoved me. Where I'm from, you protect yourself."

R.H. -- a 7x NBA champion -- says he ultimately decided to walk away rather than continue to fight, knowing he was "the only one who was gonna lose in this situation."

Horry claims this isn't the first time the guy has been verbally abusive ... saying he's trash talked his son's team in the past.

A rep for the tournament had no comment on the incident.

The "Rica Famosa Latina" star who got her forearm slashed open by her co-star confirmed our Spanish translation of an insult she hurled moments after the slicing ... and yes, "puta" does mean "whore."

We spoke to Luzelba about the fight last Thursday between herself and Patricia, during which Patricia broke a glass on Luzelba's arm and cut it wide open ... leaving behind a flap of skin and tons of blood.

30 stitches later ... Luzelba's doubling down on her insult right after when she said to Patricia "Estas sola por puta."

Sure enough, it means what we said it means. De nada.

The violent incident went down Thursday night during filming at WeHo Bistro ... as Luzelba and Patricia discussed rumors Patricia slept with her sister's husband. The conversation's in Spanish, so trust us, entendemos todo.

For good measure ... Luzelba tells Patricia, "You're lonely because you're a whore."
