UFC's Kevin Lee Gunning for Conor McGregor Your Baby Is a Weakness!

5/15/2017 2:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC rising star Kevin Lee says Conor McGregor's newborn baby is going to RUIN his UFC career -- chewing up precious training time ... and he'll pay for it in the Octagon. 

Lee is fighting Michael Chiesa on June 25th -- and says after he "beats the f**k" outta him, he's gunning for Conor's lightweight championship. 

Lee says he doesn't have a wife or kid like Conor ... and while McGregor is feeding his baby mushed-up bananas, he's training his ass off to get an edge on the Irish superstar. 

As for Chiesa, Lee says he only punched him at the big UFC event on Friday because he was defending himself ... and he's pissed that his designer $3,000 glasses got broken in the melee. 

Lee says he'll make Chiesa pay by beating him so badly, "It's gonna change the way he views the world."

EXCLUSIVE

Valentina Shevchenko is no Ronda Rousey -- and won't be disposed of in the 1st round ... so says Amanda Nunes.

Nunes is facing "Bullet" at UFC 213 -- and after things got physical at the big UFC announcement last week, we wanted to know if Amanda was planning a quick beatdown of her new rival.

"I think it's gonna be a battle," Nunes told us outside of Katsuya in Hollywood. She also predicted the fight will go the distance.

Nunes and Shevchenko fought back in March 2016 -- Nunes won that fight in a decision.

Since that fight, she destroyed Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey with 1st round finishes. In fact, 4 out of her last 5 fights were 1st round victories.

EXCLUSIVE

Before Daniel Cormier swaps punches with Jon Jones, he's swapping "I Dos" with his fiancee ... and he's got a special request for Dana White when it comes to his wedding gift.

DC is tying the knot with his longtime girlfriend and mother of his 2 children, Salina Deleon, on May 27 -- and says it's something he's been looking forward to for a very long time.

In fact, Daniel says he's been fully involved in the wedding planning -- even mapping out the seating chart (and if you've ever planned a wedding, you know how big of a pain that can be!).

But the most important part ... what gift is he hoping to get from Dana? Something big and small at the same time.

EXCLUSIVE

Lorenzo Fertitta -- the former co-owner of the UFC -- says he supports Dana White's plan to pay Mayweather $100 mil and McGregor $75 mil if they fight ... saying, "They deserve it!" 

You know Lorenzo's story ... he and his brother, Frank, invested $2 mil into the UFC back in 2001 before selling it for $4 BILLION in 2016.

He's now launching his own private investment firm but he's still very into the UFC -- and has strong opinions on Conor McGregor, Jon Jones, Daniel Cormier and Anderson Silva.

Hey, Floyd ... pay attention. This guy's the REAL money team. 

Jon Jones to Cormier: 'I Beat You After a Weekend of Cocaine'

5/12/2017 3:20 PM PDT
Breaking News

It wasn't a little slipup after all ... Jon Jones says he blew lines all weekend long before beating Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 back in 2015.

Jones said the drug bender was part of something he called "a month for the ages" -- explaining how he did a "weekend of cocaine" and then beat Cormier the following weekend.

FYI, Jones had previously admitted the cocaine use after the positive drug test was revealed back in '15 -- but played it down as a one-time slipup saying, "I'm not a cocaine addict by any means or not even a frequent user."

Cormier called Jones a junkie and accused him of also "sandblasting prostitutes" the same weekend. Jones denied sandblasting any prostitutes.

They will fight in July.

Can't wait.

2:52 PM PT --  Daniel Cormier says he smacked Jon Jones in the face with a water bottle behind the scenes at the big UFC news conference Friday ... all over comments Jon made about his kid.

"He's a bitch," Cormier said ... "He said something about my kid so I smacked him across the face with a water bottle. Bitch ass n**ga."

Daniel Cormier will finally get his rematch with Jon Jones -- the UFC announced it's happening at UFC 214 in July.

It's one of the most heated rivalries in pro sports -- these guys hate each other with a fiery passion.

Cormier says Jon is a drug abusing, lying, cheating bad person. Jon once invited Daniel to perform oral sex on him.

Jon emerged victorious the first time they fought back in January 2015. Cormier has vowed to avenge the loss ever since.

Forget round tables ... Charlie Hunnam says he drew inspiration for his role in 'King Arthur' from a different shape -- an Octagon cage.

Hunnam plays the lead role in the Guy Ritchie action flick and told RedBulletin.com he "thought an enormous amount about Conor McGregor" while deciding on how to play the character.

"Conor McGregor was somebody that I drew a lot of inspiration from and that Guy and I discussed a lot," he added to Entertainment Weekly.

Rose Namajunas Anderson Silva's a Legend ... But It's Getting Sad

5/11/2017 8:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rose Namajunas says Anderson Silva is one of the greatest UFC fighters EVER -- but it's "kinda sad" watching his career on the downswing.

We were talking with Rose about Silva's beef with the UFC and whether he deserves the title shot he's been requesting, despite the fact he's only the #7 ranked middleweight.

Rose says the entire situation "just sucks" -- and basically spelled out why it's hard to watch a fighter she has so much respect for squabble with the company after losing 4 out of his last 5 fights. 

Of course, Dana White has an opinion on Anderson, too -- if you're going to threaten to retire if you don't get your way, just do it already. 

Daniel Cormier Jon Jones Is a Bad Person ... Drugs, 'Roids & Lies

5/11/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Daniel Cormier just UNLOADED on Jon Jones -- saying the guy is a loser of a human being who's completely delusional if he still considers himself the "real" UFC light heavyweight champ. 

It's no secret these guys hate each other with a passion ... and now with the two possibly (hopefully!) facing off at UFC 214 in July, the smack talk is heating up again. 

After Cormier blasted Jones on Twitter, JJ fired back, "Can someone tell DC he's a great guy and pat him on the back so we can move on already. #TheChampIsHere."

Cormier didn't take too kindly to it and WENT OFF on Jones when we saw him Wednesday afternoon -- telling TMZ Sports JJ is a bad person with a history of drugs, steroids and lying. 

By the way, Cormier is set to do some announcing work at UFC 211 this weekend (and the post-fight show on FS1) ... but it's obvious he wants to do less talking and more fighting.

So, why not make a fortune BEFORE making another fortune???

Oscar says A LOT more in the full interview tonight on FS1.
