Jean-Claude Van Damme Geriatric & Jacked ... with UFC's Bruce Buffer

10/11/2017 8:08 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's Jean-Claude Van Damme and UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer proving 60 is really the new 30 -- lookin' absolutely JACKED at a workout sesh.

The pic comes to us courtesy of Buffer ... who says he was droppin' sweat with his old buddy JCVD at a Gold's Gym.

Pretty crazy -- Buff actually looks BIGGER than Jean-Claude ... though the movie star gets props for his ripped-up arm. Bottom line -- both are in insanely good shape.

Probably helps that JCVD's still kickin' ass in "Kickboxer" reboots ... almost 3 decades after the original!

Serena Williams What Pregnant Body? SNAP BACK!!!

Breaking News

You're looking at Maria Sharapova's worst nightmare -- a fully SNAPPED BACK Serena Williams ... looking fit, focused and ready to beat that ass ... less than a month after giving birth. 

Serena gave birth to little Alexis Jr. on Sept. 1 -- and spent several days in the hospital due to "complications."

But early Thursday morning, Serena posted her first full-body post-preggo selfie -- and she looks superhero fit.

Seriously, this is a woman who won a major tennis tourney while pregnant -- who crushed it in the gym at 35 weeks pregnant -- and whose mother guaranteed she'd return to dominate the pro game after the kid was born.

So, when will Serena return? The next Grand Slam is the Australian Open in January ... the same tourney she won while she was in her 1st trimester.

You've been warned.

Chuck Liddell Chael Would Be 'Warm-Up Fight' ... If I Came Back

9/26/2017 1:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chuck Liddell says he hasn't ruled out an MMA comeback -- and if he does return, Chael Sonnen would be a great "warm-up fight."

The 47-year-old UFC legend has been training pretty regularly at Jay Glazer's Unbreakable Gym in L.A. -- and we're told he's still in damn good shape.

And with all the comeback rumors out there, we asked Chuck straight-up what the deal is.

"Chael's an easy fight," Liddell says ... "If I was gonna come back, it's a good one. It's a good warm-up fight. He's got a big mouth but not much behind it."

Guessing Chael's gonna have something to say about this ... 

Anthony Bourdain I'm Ripped in Rome ... And So Is My New GF!!!

9/22/2017 3:53 PM PDT

Whatever Anthony Bourdain's eating these days ... it does his body good.

The celebrity chef and 'Parts Unknown' host showed off his 6-pack and tats at the Hilton hotel pool in Rome. His inked up gf, Italian actress Asia Argento, ain't no slouch in the abs department either.

They started dating earlier this year, and they've been doing crunches ever since. Kidding. Maybe.

They're on vacay to celebrate Asia's 42nd birthday with her kids and extended family. We see 12 reasons why these 2 will pass on the cake.

Jared Leto Ripped For Rock 'n' Roll

9/22/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Jared Leto lost 35 lbs. for "Dallas Buyers Club" and morphed into the gangly Joker for "Suicide Squad," but when he's just playing Jared the rocker in his band, 30 Seconds To Mars ... he's ripped!!!

Jared shared this pic of his hot bod on Instagram and asked folks to caption it. He also added the hashtag #walkonwater. It's the name of 30 Seconds' new single ... so, pretty genius marketing.

He's missing a few packs to a 6, but we'll let it slide on behalf of those bulging pectorals and the whole putting-the-rock-in-rock-star thing.

Francia Raisa Ain't Worried About Scars Check Out My Guns!

9/21/2017 11:35 AM PDT

Francia Raisa is getting ripped again ... but this time we're talkin' muscles.

Selena Gomez's best friend is back in the gym getting her sweat on just months after donating her kidney to save Selena's life. You can see her scars where doctors made the incision, but we suggest you check out her it's-always-bikini-season bod.

The surgery took its toll on Francia, a fitness queen forced to put her workouts on hold.

She wasn't ready to pose for paps last week on the set of her new TV show, "Grown-Ish," but she's now ready to show us what she's got.

And we dig it.

Lonzo Ball Dunkin' & Twerkin' ... Big Baller Style

9/19/2017 7:22 AM PDT

Lonzo Ball is gonna give it all to you in this video ... get ready.

You know dude's got hops ... so maybe the INSANE dunk is ho-hum everyday action for you (crazy). But check out the dance he busts after freakin' the dunk at the Lakers practice facility and ask yourself ...

Should Odell Beckham Jr. be looking over his shoulder? Is there a new king of the dance ready to take over professional sports and captivate us with his pre-game and in-game gyrations?

Only time will tell. Get it, young man, get it.

UFC's Luke Rockhold 'I Can't Feel My Feet' ... Gross Post-Fight Swelling

9/19/2017 6:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

UFC superstar Luke Rockhold kicked so much ass this weekend, his foot exploded. 

Well, it certainly blew the hell up. 

Take a look at video of Luke's insanely swollen and bruised right foot -- which he earned during Saturday night's dominant TKO victory over David Branch at 'UFC Fight Night' in Pittsburgh. 

Maybe put some ice on it?

The good news ... Rockhold seems pretty comfortable recovering while chillin' at a rooftop pool in the Steel City.

Could be worse ... could be David Branch's face.

Stephon Marbury I'm Coming Back to the NBA! No, Seriously Guys ...

9/12/2017 10:52 AM PDT
Breaking News

Don't call it a comeback -- cause it's a looongshot -- but Stephon Marbury says he's gunnin' for an NBA return!

The 40-year-old announced the news on social media, adding that -- "I still have a lot of go in me as a player and at 40 being able to play at a high level is a gift."

Remember ... Starbury left the league 8 YEARS ago after a string of sketchy off-court incidents -- highlighted by him eating Vaseline straight out of a jar.

He famously packed his bags for China ... and became the most legendary player in Chinese Basketball Association history (for real, dude's already got his own statue).

Now, Marbury says he's ready to "turn towards the last page of my basketball diary that I've been writing since 95 when I left Lincoln High."

Will a team take a chance on him? We'll see ...

Demi Lovato Gets Badass New Belt ... In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

8/28/2017 11:33 AM PDT

Demi Lovato is becoming a much more dangerous person -- she just earned her blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ... after training her ass off for the past year.

The blue belt is one level above white belt -- and 3 levels away from being a black belt.

The singer was awarded her new rank Monday at Jay Glazer's Unbreakable Gym in L.A. -- where she's spent the past 12 months grappling with MMA superstars like Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture.

Glazer -- who owns the gym -- flew back to town specifically to present Lovato with the new belt and tweeted, "I'm more proud of the work [Demi] puts in with nobody watching than i am what she does with the world watching."

"Congrats on achieving your blue belt today in #bjj, YOU put the grind in!"

Most blue belts usually train for about 2 years before moving up to the next level, purple belt.

It's been a helluva past few days for Demi -- from belting out the national anthem for the Mayweather/McGregor fight to performing for the VMAs ... and now this.

With great power ...

Bob Harper I Got A Second Chance ... I'm Doin' It Veggie Style!!!

EXCLUSIVE

PETA has a friend in Bob Harper, who says he's cut meat completely out of his diet after almost dropping dead from a massive heart attack back in February.

We got the 'Biggest Loser' trainer and host in Bev Hills Tuesday and he looked healthy as a horse. 

While his heart attack was triggered in part by genetics, Bob says he's made a bunch of lifestyle changes after getting a second chance at life, which is crazy to think since he was already such a health nut.

Meek Mill I'm Just Like Drake ... I Airball 3's Too!

8/22/2017 11:39 AM PDT

If you thought Meek Mill and Drake had NOTHING in common, TMZ Sports has hilarious video to prove you totally wrong ... Meek airballin' 3's just like his former hip-hop rival!

You might remember ... Drake drew nothing but air warming up with the Kentucky Wildcats a few years ago, and has been roasted on the 'net about it since.

Meek got his chance to one-up his rival at James Harden's JH-Town charity game this past weekend, but the Philly spitter came up waaay short -- bricking a trifecta of 3's during warm-ups.

In all fairness to Meek, this was for a good cause ... but still, work on that form, bro.

Bodybuilder Dallas McCarver Dies at 26 Apparently Choked On Food

8/22/2017 10:00 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Bodybuilding superstar Dallas McCarver -- aka "Big Country" -- has died after apparently choking on food at his Florida home, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We spoke with McCarver's girlfriend, WWE superstar Dana Brooke, who says the 26-year-old was found unconscious just after midnight Tuesday morning by a friend at his home shortly after they spoke on the phone.

McCarver was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports there appears to be no signs of foul play.

Brooke says McCarver told her he was about to make dinner and the last thing he said to her was, "I love you. Goodbye."

Brooke says the cause of death is believed to be choking on food ... and it does not appear McCarver was trying to harm himself.

McCarver had worked out earlier in the day on Monday and seemed to be doing just fine ... no signs of a medical problem while hitting a chest press with 160 lbs dumbbells.

McCarver burst on to the bodybuilding circuit when he was 21 and immediately began winning big competitions. He was a 6'1", 300-lb beast who was crazy strong in the weight room.

Just last year, McCarver placed 8th in the 2016 Mr. Olympia competition.

McCarver had a health scare back in March when he collapsed onstage at the 2017 Arnold Classic Australia ... but he appeared to be doing much better recently.

Brooke tells us the message to McCarver's fans is to stay strong -- that's what he would want.
