Olympic Wrestler Helen Maroulis I'm Open to MMA Career ... 'There's a Possibility'

8/25/2016 2:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

There could be a HUGE new star in the world of women's MMA -- because the U.S. Olympian who just won the gold medal in wrestling says she's open to the idea of getting in the cage. 

We spoke with Helen Maroulis -- the 24-year-old phenom who dominated the world at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio -- and asked her straight up if MMA is in her future. 

Maroulis made it clear wrestling is her main priority and first love ... but says a transition to MMA is definitely a possibility down the road. 

The best part of the video ... Maroulis says she'll 100% return to the Olympics in 2020 to defend her title.  

UFC's Michael Bisping Double Duty Training for Fight on Movie Set

8/23/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's a good thing Michael Bisping can multitask ... 'cause the UFC middleweight champ says he'll be training for his next fight against Dan Henderson while shooting his new movie in London. 

Bisping locked up a role in the bare-knuckle boxing flick, "My Name Is Lenny" -- which starts filming this week. Bisping says his part will take roughly 2 weeks to complete. 

But he also has a huge fight coming up against Hendo at UFC 204 in October -- just 7 weeks away. 

So, how will he be able to prep for the fight and shoot the flick? 

"My trainer's gonna come with me. I'm still gonna train every day. Film the movie. Come back. Focus on the fight. Kick some ass."

FYI, other fighters like Paige VanZant and Conor McGregor have turned down roles to focus on training camp -- but clearly, Bisping thinks he can handle both. 

We'll find out on October 8th ... 

U.S. Swimmer Jimmy Feigen Charity Donation to Boost Brazil's Olympians

8/22/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0820-James-Feigen-gettySwimmer Jimmy Feigen's nearly $11k deal to avoid a Rio jail could backfire against future Team USA Olympians.

TMZ has learned Feigen's $10,800 donation has been tagged to spruce up training facilities for the Reaction Institute in the Rio favela known as City of God. Specifically, we're told the money is going to help fix walls and prevent weather damage to judo equipment. 

That equipment is used to give children from the favelas judo training, and put them on the road to becoming Olympians -- who might one day whoop-up on American judo fighters. Brazil's judo gold medalist this year, Rafaela Silva, once trained at the Institute ... so it has a good track record. 

As we reported, Feigen struck a deal with prosecutors in Rio ... who agreed to let him off the hook, if he made the donation.

Folks at the Reaction Institute are pumped for the dough, and tell us they hope Jimmy will visit once the work is done -- but we're guessing he won't be back in Brazil anytime soon.

8/12/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

NHL legend Jeremy Roenick says he wants to personally mentor Justin Bieber on the ice -- telling TMZ Sports he GUARANTEES he can take JB's skills to the next level.

Roenick says he saw the new hockey footage Bieber posted online this week -- and was genuinely impressed ... but says the guy has serious room to grow.

"He's pretty tough up top, I don't know about the calves and the thighs though ... it's a little weak."

So, what's the plan?

Jeremy says he'll put together a REAL comprehensive hockey-based workout plan for Bieber -- noting, "I will make you a WAY better hockey player."

"The personal invitation for tutelage is right here ... I can definitely make him the top scorer of any men's league team on the planet."

8/11/2016 10:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811_Brooklyn-Beckham_socks_AKMGSIDavid Beckham's 17-year-old son made a fashion statement on the way into a spin class in L.A. Wednesday -- rocking a pink gay pride tank top ... with the socks to match! 

Brooklyn Beckham and his world-famous father hit up SoulCycle for a little father/son workout sesh ... followed by a smoothie at the famous Earthbar cafe. 

As for the shirt, it's from Palm Springs Gay Pride in 2011 ... so, we're guessing Brooklyn was just going for more of a retro look. 

One more thing ... Brooklyn's currently dating Chloe Moretz.

Sorry, fellas. 

Billie Jean King Serena Would Get Blasted By Male Pros

8/1/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Serena Williams has absolutely NO DAMN SHOT to beat a top men's tennis pro ... that's according to tennis legend Billie Jean King ... who says Williams would go down hard to any of the elite guys.

Billie Jean King is a TITAN in women's sports -- most notably for pummeling Bobby Riggs (who was 55) in a co-ed tennis match dubbed the "Battle Of The Sexes" back in 1973.

We got King out in L.A. recently and wanted to know if the seemingly unbeatable Serena would fair as well against an active men's pro, as King did against Riggs.

Billie's short answer? HELL NO.

King leaves the door open for Serena to do work against guys at the bottom of the male tennis tour, but makes it clear the Federers, Nadals and Djokovics of the world would all smoke her.

Check out the clip -- and move these hypothetical matches to the top of the "things we'd gladly pay to see" list.

Gigi's been boxing for a while -- and she's picked up a pretty solid overhand right.

#Respect.

Calvin Harris Works Out with NFL Player ... Beast In the Gym

7/22/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Calvin Harris works out like a real-life pro athlete ... so says Minnesota Vikings safety Antone Exum, who says the DJ blew him away during a Thursday gym sesh.

Exum and Harris were puttin' in work at Heart & Hustle in L.A. -- a pretty elite gym where tons of pro athletes and big stars go to get swole. 

Harris was such an animal during the workout, Exum didn't realize he wasn't a pro jock -- and when he figured out who he was, he raced after Calvin to introduce himself. 

By the way, Harris is pretty ripped -- and Taylor Swift used to post pics of his impressive physique on her social media before that whole thing crashed and burned.

Her loss, Tinashe's gain (allegedly).

He obviously doesn't ... leading us to our next question.

What's your excuse?

Here's Dez Bryant doing his best Bo Jackson impression ... trying to convince the world he can dominate in 2 sports by taking on some basketball competition in a L.A. pickup game.

Dez hit up L.A. Fitness in Hollywood Thursday ... and hopped on the hoop court with a couple of his homeboys and straight GAVE WORK to the local actors (waiters) in the building.

He also took time to pose for pics and chat with all the fans in the gym ... AFTER he busted their asses of course.
