Rampage Jackson 'I'd Whoop Brock Lesnar's Ass'

9/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rampage Jackson would kick the ever-living crap outta Brock Lesnar ... at least according to Rampage ... who says, huge weight difference or not, he'd win the fight.

TMZ Sports saw Jackson outside of 1 OAK in L.A. this week ... when a potential Brock Lesnar vs. Rampage Jackson super fight came up.

FYI -- Rampage is a legendary MMA fighter ... with a 37-11 record. Brock has a lot less experience (he's 6-3) ... but outweighs R.J. by 60+ pounds. 

So, who'd win? Rampage has zero doubt he'd be victorious.

Question is, how would he take out Lesnar?

Let Rampage explain!

Ryan Sheckler Skating Injuries Are The Worst ... I'd Rather Get KO'd By McGregor

9/19/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

How bad do skateboarding injuries hurt? Bad enough to willingly go a round with an MMA superstar in the Octagon ... 'cause Ryan Sheckler says he'd rather take a punch from Conor McGregor than relive his worst encounter with concrete.

Sheckler -- who has had his fair share of skating injuries -- says the temporary pain from getting KO'd wouldn't even come close to what he's gone through.  

"You gotta feel like I'd be knocked down in 10 seconds," Sheckler says. "The skateboarding injuries suck. The concrete sucks. So if I can get hit real quick and out, I'll take that."

"It just seems a lot simpler ... and no recovery time at the end."

Check out the clip ... Shecks also weighs in on who he'd take in McGregor vs. Diaz 3 ... if it ever happens.

UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie -- one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time -- is pulling the plug on his 22 year marriage ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Gracie filed divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court seeking to end his marriage to Marianne Cuttic. 

The two were married back in 1994 and have 4 children together -- 3 of them are under the age of 18. 

In the docs, 49-year-old Gracie cites irreconcilable differences for the split -- but the most interesting part ... he's the one demanding spousal support. He also wants her to pay his attorneys fees. 

Shocking, considering Gracie is one of the most famous MMA fighters ever -- and just fought Ken Shamrock at Bellator 149 back in February. 

Marianne is a podiatrist in Los Angeles. 

Royce is requesting joint physical and legal custody of their minor kids. 

According to multiple reports, Gracie and his wife have been battling with the I.R.S. -- which has accused them of owing more than $1 million in back taxes.

UFC stud Mickey Gall says it was "an honor" to be spoofed by WWE after his fight with CM Punk -- but admits, it was probably meant to be a shot at the former wrestler. 

Gall appeared on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs Tuesday night on FS1) -- when we asked about WWE recreating the UFC 203 match at the "Backlash" Pay-Per-View event the next day. 

"That's cool, man," Gall said ... "It's an honor."

As for what inspired the spoof, Gall says ... "I think it's not so much me but their feelings against him ... so, I guess thats kinda crappy. But you know, hey, I loved it."

And, now that he's a famous athlete, we asked which Kardashian he wants to bang. Check out his answer. 

There's a lot more on the show tonight -- and Gall tells us which big UFC event he's campaigning to fight at next.

EXCLUSIVE

Paige VanZant says she would LOVE to see CM Punk fight in the UFC again -- but realistically, he's just too old to become a great MMA fighter. 

"I love CM Punk. I wanted him to do well. I think he's just a little too old for it," Paige told us in NYC. 

VanZant makes it clear she's a big fan -- and says Punk's fight was GREAT for the entire UFC ... but says at 37, Punk doesn't have the time to put in enough jiu-jitsu training to compete with the best. 

That being said, check out the clip and see why Paige wants to see Punk back in the Octagon soon.

EXCLUSIVE

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.
