Conor McGregor just went off on Eddie Alvarez -- claiming the guy's an idiot for agreeing to fight him at UFC 205 without signing a fat ass new contract. 

You gotta watch the video ... McGregor goes off about how everyone in the UFC is trying to be like him these days -- but there's one huge difference ... no one's cashing checks as big as him.

Good luck.

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.
