10/10/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Lovato ain't just getting a cardio workout during her MMA training, she can REALLY SCRAP -- and has inquired about taking a real fight ... so says Jay Glazer.

"She's brought it up to us a million times," Glazer says. 

Of course, Jay owns the Unbreakable gym where Demi has been training over the past year (alongside fighters like Chuck Liddell and Cung Le) and says she's the "real deal."

"She throws elbows better than most of the UFC guys that come in there," Jay says ... "She's definitely one of our fighters without a doubt."

Will we ever see her in the Octagon? Maybe, maybe not ... but Jay says one thing's certain, "She's a bad little lioness. Don't mess with her."

10/9/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UFC star Mickey Gall says he's gonna destroy Sage Northcutt WORSE THAN CM PUNK -- vowing to break the guy's bones and hurt him real bad. 

Gall and Northcutt are fighting at UFC Fight Night on Dec. 17th -- and the smack talk is already in full swing. 

Gall says he actually likes Sage -- but says he's corny, a "silly boy" and "kind of a dork." 

The clip is great -- Gall is a huge star in the making -- and he also reflects on his famous beatdown of CM Punk and whether he should get another shot in the UFC.

10/9/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He was a helluva boxer ... but as a UFC fighter Rocky Balboa "would have been a water boy" -- so says Sylvester Stallone

Now that Sly's a part owner of the UFC -- we were asking him all about the sport Wednesday night as he was leaving Catch in West Hollywood ... and he revealed the best perks of UFC ownership.

UFC's Dominick Cruz Not Everyone Hates McGregor ... Fighters Are Jealous of His Money!

10/8/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Not all UFC fighters hate Conor McGregor -- despite what Cowboy Cerrone said this week -- but there ARE a bunch of guys jealous of Conor's huge paychecks ... so says Dominick Cruz

Cerrone told SI Now that "all" of the UFC fighters hate McGregor -- "He's not one of the fellas. He's not a good dude."

So, we reached to Cruz -- who knows just about everyone in the UFC -- and asked for his take. 

"I think what they're upset at is the fact of how much money he's made, how quickly and on his own," Cruz said. 

"But that doesn't make ME hate him. That makes me try to understand the situation and make a better situation for myself."

"And to me, hating somebody, being bitter at them for making more money than me, that's only going to hold me back from doing what I want to do personally."

Smart dude -- watch the clip.

10/5/2016 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Bisping is channeling his inner-Nostradamus -- and predicting the exact round he plans to end Dan Henderson's career at UFC 204 this weekend. 

TMZ Sports spoke with the reigning UFC middleweight champ -- who says he respects Hendo ... but wants to make him pay BADLY for their fight at UFC 100 when Dan KO'd him in the 2nd round. 

Bisping says Henderson had an unfair advantage in that fight -- even though Hendo's testosterone replacement therapy was approved by the athletic commission back then (it has since been banned). 

Watch the clip ... Bisping means business.

UFC's Josh Samman Dies After Mysterious Coma ... Coroner Confirms

10/5/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1005-mma-josh-samman-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar8:59 AM PT -- The Broward County Coroner has now confirmed Samman passed away at 7:20 AM on Wednesday. 

As for cause of death, the coroner told us, "It would be hard to suggest anything other than drugs" based on the conditions in which Samman and Kirkingburg were found. 

An autopsy is scheduled -- but there could be delays due to the hurricane in the region. update-grey-gray-barUFC middleweight Josh Samman -- who appeared on "The Ultimate Fighter" -- has died after spending several days in a coma ... this according to his 'Ultimate Fighter' castmate Gilbert Jamal Smith. 

Samman was found unresponsive early Friday morning at an apartment in South Florida. His roommate, Troy Kirkingburg -- an MMA announcer -- was pronounced dead at the scene. 

It's unclear how the two men died. 

There were rumblings that heroin played a role -- but Samman's mother came out and said doctors found no traces of the drug in his system. There were also no signs of foul play according to reports.

Samman was 28. 

Luke Rockhold Flaunts Disgusting Skin Marks ... Swears It's Not Contagious

10/4/2016 8:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Well, this is gross ... 

Luke Rockhold's body is covered in some weird red, blotchy rash ... and he tried to rub it all over Daniel Cormier

The UFC superstar SWEARS he got the skin condition thanks to "wet cupping" therapy -- where suction cups are placed on parts of the body and then lanced with a special needle. 

It's essentially a controlled bloodletting that leaves nasty skin marks. It allegedly helps to relieve pain. 

Even though it looks like some sort of infectious disease, Rockhold insists it's not contagious (it's not) -- though that didn't stop him from freaking out D.C. in the gym Monday.

Funny stuff ...

10/4/2016 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UFC honcho Dana White does NOT think there's a shot in hell Conor McGregor will fight Floyd Mayweather -- saying they're more interested in the money than actually trading blows. 

White was out in L.A. the other day when we asked for updates -- since both Conor and Floyd had resurrected talk about a possible superfight between the boxer and the MMA stud.

But it's clear Dana doesn't think it's gonna happen and he explains why. 

However, if Floyd does want to make a deal -- Dana lays out the ground rules and says it will NOT be a pure boxing match ... but rather an MMA-style fight. 

Slim chance is better than no chance.

Here we go again ...

Conor McGregor sounds like he's still VERY serious about squaring off with Floyd Mayweather -- telling TMZ Sports, "I told you I'm ready for that fight!"

Conor dropped Floyd's name at the UFC 205 media event earlier this week -- saying he might need to set up a bout with the boxing legend after he runs through all the big names in the UFC.

Of course, Conor and Floyd tried to get this thing going earlier this year, but it fizzled out.

We spoke with Floyd on Tuesday and he told us there's still a chance the two will get it on ... but hinted that it's all about getting the money right.

Fingers crossed ...

Conor dissed the hell out of Stephens during the event -- when he turned to the UFC veteran and shouted, "Who the fuck is that guy?!" 

The clip went viral -- but now, Stephens is firing back in a scathing statement in which he refers to Conor as "McClown" -- and blasts him as a "bully" who can't hold his own against real fighters. 

"Media and UFC like to fuel this guy's fictional character to always bully and disrespect other fighters like it's funny," Stephens says. 

"I can't accept that and will mop the floor with him."

He adds, "I've been humbling bullies and disrespectful guys like him since grade school."

There's a lot more in the full statement (see below) -- Stephens clearly hopes to settle the score with Conor inside the Octagon. 

By the way, Stephens ain't no bitch -- he's been fighting in the UFC since 2007 and is currently the #7 ranked featherweight.
