11/6/2015 12:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1106-holly-instagram-01NO TURNING BACK NOW!!! 

UFC star Holly Holm is about to board a plane to Australia ... where she's set to take on Ronda Rousey next weekend ... and we gotta say, she looks like she's been training her ass off!

Holm just took this photo after her last hardcore training session and wrote -- "Time to head to Melbourne this evening. What a journey already and the fight is still to come. I love my life and this journey I am on." 

Rousey and Holm are set to battle in Melbourne on Nov. 14th. 

Break a leg (or don't).  

UFC Fighter Suspended For Bloody Spit Attack

10/29/2015 11:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

You can punch, kick, choke and slam ... but you CAN'T SPIT ON YOUR OPPONENT during a UFC fight ... something Caio Magalhaes learned the hard way. 

The UFC middleweight fighter was just hit with a 6 month suspension for spitting a mouthful of blood at Josh Samman at the end of their fight at "The Ultimate Fighter 21" back in July.

Caio had just been choked out, ending the match -- but when Samman came over to shake hands, Caio brushed him off with a mouthful of bloody spit.

Caio later apologized -- but the Nevada State Athletic Commission decided his contrition wasn't enough and slapped him with a 6 month suspension and ordered him to do 40 hours of community service.  

The lesson -- don't spit on people, it's not nice. 

UFC's Robbie Lawler I Won't Let My Kid Fight ... Until He's 8

10/23/2015 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robbie Lawler is no Vin Diesel -- 'cause even though Vin is getting his 7-year-old daughter into MMA right now ... the UFC superstar says his kid will have to wait 'til he's 8. 

It's actually an interesting question among parents -- with MMA exploding as a sport, more kids want to get involved at a younger age. 

But Robbie -- who began his martial arts training at age 9 -- says, "I'm gonna try to keep my son out of martial arts as long as possible."

"I want him to know his body a little more before he starts getting into martial arts." 

As we previously reported, Vin's daughter is training with Ronda Rousey -- with Diesel saying he wants her to be a beast! 

UFC Fighter Hit With Designer Purse ... In Epic Trolling

10/23/2015 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


A grown ass male UFC fighter threw a designer purse at another grown ass male UFC fighter in Dublin yesterday ... nearly causing a war to break out ... and it's LOADED with backstory. 

The purse thrower is Norman Parke -- who chucked the bag at his opponent Reza Madadi at the weigh ins for UFC Fight Night in Dublin. 

And why the purse attack??? 

Turns out, Reza was convicted of robbing a Bottega Veneta store in Stockholm, Sweden -- swiping all sorts of purses in a caper that was caught on tape. He actually served 14 months in prison! 

Enter Parke ... who obviously thinks the best way to mess with Reza's head is to bring up the past -- which explains the purse ... and judging by Reza's reaction, the strategy worked. 

These two fight tomorrow night ... and if Reza wins, he'll actually be able to BUY his next purse with the prize money.

1023-jon-jones-UFC-GETTY-02HE'S BACK!!! 

The UFC has lifted Jon Jones' suspension after his hit and run arrest in New Mexico and will allow him to return to the octagon effective immediately. 

Jones was suspended for 6 months following the April arrest -- and was stripped of his light heavyweight title. 

But now, UFC Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta says he's getting one more chance -- and he better not blow it

"We've made it clear to Jon that this new opportunity to compete in UFC is a privilege and not a right, and that there are significant expectations we have regarding his conduct moving forward."

"We’re happy to read and see reports that he has embraced the terms of his plea agreement and is using this experience to grow and develop as a person."

Jones has also issued a statement saying he's grateful for the opportunity -- adding, "I am excited to show how much I've grown as a person outside of the octagon."

"It took me losing almost everything I had worked for to realize how much I had. I am blessed and humbled by the continued support of the MMA community and I can't thank my fans enough for their unwavering support through my ups and downs."

"This marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life and my career and let me assure you the best is yet to come."

No word on when Jones will actually fight again -- but the smart money is on a bout with Daniel Corier sometime in 2016.

Mayhem Miller Crazy Eyed Mugshot ... After Cop Brawl Arrest

10/19/2015 4:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Hey Mayhem, look over here ... OVER HERE ... MAYHEM!!! 

Here's the mugshot that former UFC star Jason "Mayhem" Miller took hours after he was arrested for allegedly attacking cops Friday morning in a ceramic tile throwing rage. 

As we previously reported, cops say they initially confronted Miller at his Orange County home after receiving a call about a possible domestic disturbance -- but Miller was "aggressive and uncooperative."

Cops say the MMA fighter (and ex-MTV host) threw a tile and threatened them with a fire extinguisher and metal pole -- so they tased him. After that, Miller fought with cops for 8 minutes before he was taken into custody. 

Eventually, he posed for the cop cam -- but refused to crack a smile ... unlike the last time he was arrested for fighting cops. 


UFC's Jon Jones Praised By Kids Orgs 'He's DOMINATING Community Service'

10/18/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1016_jon_jones_baseball_team_sports_wmJon Jones is CRUSHING his court-ordered community service -- TMZ Sports has learned he's made a sizable dent in his required 72 appearances to speak to kids groups ... with high praise from the orgs.  

As part of his plea deal in his hit-and-run case in New Mexico last month, Jones was ordered to make 72 appearances with kids groups to educate children about making good decisions in life. 

We've learned Jones hit up 5 different places on Thursday -- to rave reviews from the people who run the groups. 

One of the places he went was Sandia Prep School -- where he spoke with the kids about how he almost lost his career over a few bad choices. 

We spoke with the coach, who tells us, "His message to my team was simply awesome. His whole demeanor was great."

"These are young men, 8th grade to seniors in high school who really look up to him and I think they learned from this and appreciated Jon’s visit. I appreciated it."

Jones also swung by Gracie Barra New Mexico Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu --where instructor Don Ortega tells us Jon was equally candid with his students. 

"He talked about losing a lot of wrestling matches but setting hit goals high and working hard to achieve them."

We reached out to Jon's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

Ronda Rousey Marine Concerned After BF Revelation 'Hope She Doesn't Back Out'

10/13/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_Jarrod-Haschert-_ronda_travis_tmzA wise Batman villain once said, "Never rub another man's rhubarb" -- which is why the marine who asked out Ronda Rousey is concerned that their date to his Marine Corps Ball could be called off.  

As we previously reported, Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert asked Rousey to his Marine Corps Ball earlier this summer in a video that went viral -- but to his surprise, she accepted the offer

But that was before UFC fighter Travis Browne went public about his relationship with Rousey -- declaring on Monday, "She's my woman and I am her man."

So, we hit up Haschert about the news that Ronda's spoken for -- to which he simply replied, "Damn. I really hope she doesn't back out."

BTW, Haschert is such a gentleman, that when we jokingly asked if he'd consider fighting Browne over Ronda, he told us, "That would be a tough fight! She's a great woman with an amazing personality. I'm sure he's a great guy."

The ball is set to go down in December -- stay tuned.

UFC's Urijah Faber had an unwelcome visitor over the weekend who crapped all over his party.

Faber was entertaining friends at his Sacramento home when a woman bolted into the house and locked herself in the bathroom. Cops were called and Urijah chronicled the search with his cellphone.  

The reveal almost brought the UFC star to his knees ... a woman passed out on the bathroom floor who had crapped herself and vomited for bad measure.

The video ends with a shirtless Urijah in a new role ... janitor.

Ronda Rousey I Could Forgive Bieber ... But There's a Catch

10/8/2015 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Call her Ronda the Merciful -- 'cause the UFC superstar says she's down to let Justin Bieber off the hook for dissing her sister at Cannes ... as long as she gets permission from one key person. 

Rousey arrived back in L.A. to get back to training for her big fight against Holly Holm -- when we asked about the 2014 incident when Bieber blew off her 16-year-old sister who asked for a picture at a media event. 

"If my little sister forgave him, I could," Ronda said. 

Rousey has previously said her sister was so hurt by the incident, she STOPPED BEING A BELIEBER!

So, how can Bieber get Rousey's sister to forgive him? Maybe start with a picture ...

In fact, Hendricks told ... "The weight was coming off fine and then yesterday my body just started to shut down. When it hit that point, I tried to push through it, and well, it didn't go well because then I had to go to the ER."

Hendricks -- who is out of the hospital now -- says his body is "hurting and sore" from the entire ordeal.
