UFC's Demetrious Johnson I Could Beat NFL Player In Bar Fight

4/24/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Could 5'3", 125 pound Demetrious Johnson beat up a massive NFL linebacker in a real-life bar fight??? 

That's what we asked the UFC flyweight champ ... and he had a pretty good idea how things would go down. 

Here's the deal ... DJ is considered one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time -- but we really wanted to know if things got violent in the real world, does skill trump size and brute strength?? 

Mighty Mouse breaks it down ... and warning: don't screw with this guy. 

Donte Stallworth Gisele Didn't Veto Brady's WH Visit ... He's Still Trump's Boy

4/23/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Brady didn't get his White House visit sacked by his supermodel wife ... that's according to his ex-teammate, Donte Stallworth, who tells TMZ Sports Brady would never duck his guy, Donald Trump.

Brady skipped the Patriots trip to the WH earlier this week and, although he said it was a family matter that kept him away, there's been speculation Gisele's hatred of the Donald is the real reason.

Stallworth says no, telling us he knows firsthand how close Trump and Brady are ... and it's a friendship Donte can't see eroding anytime soon.

FYI -- Trump didn't mention Brady once during his address to the media at the White House, so maybe a boys' trip to Mar-a-Lago is in order, just to be sure.

Huge moment for the Raiders ... Wayne Newton says the team has his blessing 100% to take over Sin City, and he's willing to kick it off by signing the squad's first national anthem.

Wayne says he's "thrilled" for the city and the team, and when we asked if he'd be willing to kick off the new era with the national anthem, he said he hasn't been asked, but would love the chance.

Hey Raiders, do the right thing.

NFL's Nate Burleson Christian McCaffrey Will Dominate NFL 'He's A Beast'

EXCLUSIVE

The NFL is about to get destroyed by a beast named Christian McCaffrey ... so says former league stud Nate Burleson who is all in on the former college football's star's pro future.

McCarffrey struggled a little bit during his bench press at the Combine, making some believe the 5'11", 203-pounder might not have the strength to compete in the big leagues.

Burleson doesn't agree ... the guy's eyes light up at the very mention of MCaffrey, and he goes on to call Christian an "absolute monster."

New England Patriots May Owe Aaron Hernandez $6 Mil ... Victim's Lawyer Claims

4/21/2017 11:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

The lawyer for Odin Lloyd's family says the New England Patriots may be on the hook to pay Aaron Hernandez $6 MILLION from his NFL contract ... but he wants the team to give the money to the victim's family instead. 

Douglas Sheff -- who represents Lloyd's mother, Ursula Ward -- addressed the media about "abatement" ... the law in Massachusetts that essentially erases a conviction if the person dies before he's exhausted all of his appeals. 

Sheff says he's spoken with experts who say if Hernandez's murder conviction is erased, the Patriots may be forced to pay out part of his contract ... which could total $6 million. 

Sheff says the Lloyd family intends to fight like hell for that money. 

He also makes a "friendly challenge" to the Patriots to work with the NFL Players Association in working out a deal to pay that money to the families of the victims in Hernandez's murder cases instead of giving it to Aaron's estate.

Don't hold your breath ... there's about a zero percent chance the Patriots do that because if the courts rule AH is entitled to the money, the team is obligated to pay it to the estate ... and then Sheff and others can fight for it.

Ex-Cowboys RB Joseph Randle Found Guilty In Battery Case

4/21/2017 9:41 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been found guilty of battery after allegedly running people over with his car last year ... but the court session was very bizarre. 

Randle was in court in Wichita, Kansas to face multiple charges for the incident -- in which prosecutors say he got violent during a beer pong game at a house party in Feb. 2016.

Moments ago, the 25-year-old was found guilty of aggravated battery, criminal threats, aggravated burglary and possession of marijuana. 

But when the judge asked Randle if he had any questions about the verdict, he replied, "I don't understand what just happened."

Randle then asked if he had been charged with anything today in a confusing exchange with the judge ... this according to KWCH's Akeam Ashford.

The lawyers in the case are now speaking with the judge.

Randle has exhibited bizarre behavior for years -- he was arrested 6 times in 17 months including an incident in which he stole underwear and cologne from a department store while he was still playing for the Cowboys.

Since then, he was arrested at a casino, busted at his ex-girlfriend's home, and allegedly ripped a TV off the wall in jail.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Kapernick Blackballed? 'Hard to Say'

4/21/2017 9:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tells TMZ Sports it's "hard to say" if Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed by the NFL ... and says we'll just have to "wait and see" if he gets hired before the 2017 season. 

Kareem has been outspoken about the Kaepernick situation in the past -- he even wrote an article about Kaep's protests in The Washington Post

But he's not ready to declare the NFL anti-Kaep yet ... and when we saw him at the Joe Torre Safe at Home event in L.A., the NBA legend said we'd have to speak with someone "in management" to get a better idea. 

Well, we did that ... we talked to Denver Broncos exec John Elway who shot down the idea that Kaepernick's protest has anything to do with his current state of unemployment.

But several players, including Terrell Suggs, aren't buying Elway's explanation ... telling TMZ Sports he IS getting punished for his protest. Suggs told Kaep to stay strong

As for whether Kareem agrees with Jim Harbaugh -- who said Kaep should be celebrated for his protest -- Kareem has thoughts on that too.

Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick's former 49ers head coach, Jim Harbaugh, is coming out STRONG in defense of his old QB -- saying Americans "must celebrate" him for his National Anthem protest.

Harbaugh -- who's now the head coach at Michigan -- authored the write-up for Kaep who was named as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people.

In his piece, Harbaugh praises Colin as a great player and a courageous person -- and says the U.S. is "lucky" to have him as a citizen.

"Colin Kaepernick was alone in his early protests last year when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem," Harbaugh wrote.

"At times in our nation's history, we have been all too quick to judge and oppose our fellow Americans for exercising their First Amendment right to address things they believe unjust."

"Rather than besmirch their character, we must celebrate their act."

He continued, "How lucky for us all and for our country to have among our citizens someone as remarkable as Colin Kaepernick."

Seems Donald Trump isn't happy with Tom Brady -- because he didn't mention the QB's name ONCE at the White House ceremony honoring the New England Patriots.

Of course, Brady did not attend the ceremony, citing "personal family matters" -- shocking considering the two were supposedly friends. 

Donald Trump has sung Brady's praises publicly on numerous occasions, saying he is the greatest QB who ever lived -- so for him to go radio silent during the ceremony sends a strong message ... he's pissed. 

By the way, Trump shouted out a bunch of Patriots players by name including Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Matt Slater, Malcolm Mitchell and Trey Flowers.
