Hell Yeah I'll Go to Marine Ball

... But There's a Catch!

9/1/2015 8:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_barWe got Jarrod's reaction to the good news from Ronda -- and it was pretty awesome.update_grey_gray_barScore one for the Marines!!!!

The ballsy Devil Dog who asked Ronda Rousey to his Marine Corps Ball -- in a video viewed more than 4 million times -- just got some great news ... SHE'S ALL IN!!!

Ronda was out in L.A. with 3 friends when she said she wasn't just impressed with Jarrod Haschert's video ... but she thinks he's cute too.

And now that her upcoming fight has been moved from January to November, her schedule is wide open to attend the ball on December 11th. There's just one catch -- Jarrod might need to round up some single friends, STAT! 

One more thing ... Ronda says she may be interested, but warns she's not a "first date kind of a girl" ... which shouldn't be a problem since Haschert appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" last week, he told us he plans on being a perfect gentleman.

8/28/2015 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The U.S. Marine who invited Ronda Rousey to his Marine Corps Ball says he's in "complete shock" after his video got nearly 4 MILLION  views online ... and says he's still hopeful she'll say "Yes."

The Marine with the massive cojones is Jarrod Haschert -- who joined the guys on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" to update us on his plan to make Ronda his date for the December 11th event.  

The bad news: he hasn't heard back from Ronda yet.

The good news: he's still super confident and even has a game plan in case she takes him up on the offer.

Floyd Mayweather

Fires Back At Ronda Rousey

... You're Not Forbes Material

8/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826_Ronda-Rousey_floyd_mayweather_tmzHere's a first ... Floyd Mayweather is using the Forbes list as diss fuel -- saying Ronda Rousey is still way too poor to be mentioned in the same breath as the boxing champ. 

Obviously, Floyd caught wind of Ronda's anti-Mayweather video Tuesday -- where she called him illiterate and bragged that she makes more money per second than he does. 

So, Floyd's doing what boxers do ... hitting back. 

In a statement issued through a TMT member, Mayweather tells TMZ Sports ... "Big bank take little bank. Let's play and see how much money you got."

He added, "Last time I checked I was #1 on Forbes. She will never be at my status. Keep trying to get publicity."

And you thought Meek Mill vs. Drake was bad ...

Chad Johnson

To Floyd & Ronda:

Just Bang Already!!!

8/26/2015 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826-floyd-chad-ronda-tmz-instagramChad Johnson thinks the animosity between Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey is built up sexual tension ... and the only way to diffuse the situation is to hump it out. 

After Ronda trashed Mayweather again this week ... saying he's illterate and she makes more cash-per-second than he does ... Johnson decided it was time to weigh in. 

"Ronda Rousey & Mayweather might as well date & stop the verbal jabs at each other."

Child, please. 

Cyborg & Miesha Tate

We Got Screwed

We Should Be Fighting Ronda

8/26/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cris "Cyborg" Justino says Ronda Rousey is straight DUCKING HER and has been for years -- and she's now calling out the UFC champ ... saying she wants the next fight. 

Cyborg has been out in Philly with fellow MMA badass Miesha Tate to shoot the movie "Fight Valley: Knockaround Girls" ... when we asked how they felt about getting passed over for the main event at UFC 195. 

Obviously, they weren't happy about it ... but both Tate and Cyborg say they're ready to brawl with Rousey any time, any where. 

"It's not my choice, it's her choice," Cyborg said ... "I'm ready. Let's go fight."

As for Tate, she says her rematch is just a matter of time -- "That day will come and we will see that fight again."

Rousey has to get through Holly Holm first ... who happens to be co-starring in the movie with Cyborg and Tate. 

Maybe they can strategize together ... 

Ronda Rousey

Gets First Shot to Be a Superhero

... But It's in a Porno

8/24/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-ronda-rousey-fun-art-getty-01Ronda Rousey is finally getting a chance to put on spandex tights and a bustier to bring a comic book badass to life -- but she won't be in the outfit too long, since the movie is a XXX film. 

TMZ Sports has learned Rousey just got an offer to star in "Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody." The offer's short on details -- like her character's name or powers -- but it's a lucrative deal. Braun says he'll pay Ronda $5 mil for 3 sex scenes.

Here's what's odd -- he says she'll need to shoot for 2 weeks! Sounds like way more dialogue than the average porno. As we reported, Braun made a similar offer to Ben Affleck's ex-nanny.

This isn't the first time Rousey has been linked to the adult film industry ... there is already an XXX parody about her called "Ronda ArouseMe."

Axel asks for forgiveness in the offer letter, in case Ronda's offended. Wisely, he doesn't want to end up on the business end of an armbar -- which seems likely since there's no way in hell she's accepting.

Ronda Rousey

Called Out By Holly Holm's Camp


8/21/2015 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-rousey-holm-usats-getty-01The match was JUST announced ... and we've already got some good old fashioned smack talk in the Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm UFC fight ... courtesy of Holly's camp. 

"We don't PLAN on taking Ronda's belt, we ARE taking her belt," Holly's agent Lenny Fresquez tells TMZ Sports

Lenny has been a part of Holly's camp for years -- and worked extensively with her during her fighting career, before she joined the UFC.

And it's clear, the Holm camp didn't take the fight expecting their star to lose. 

"I would like nothing else in the world than for [Ronda] to strike with Holly -- Holly is the best striker in the world."

Bold words, considering Ronda just K.O.'d Bethe Correia in 34 seconds courtesy of a punishing strike to the head. 

"Holly isn't Bethe Correia," Lenny says ... "She's never seen a fighter like Holly. People don't realize how much bigger and stronger Holly is than Ronda. She cleaned out the boxing division at 130, 137 and 154."

That being said, here's video of Ronda training. Good luck ... 


UFC's Anthony Johnson

Quit Your Crying Yoga Girl!!

The Gym's For Lifting, Not Stretching

8/19/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0819-anthony-johnson-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar 9:00 PM PT -- The UFC says a third party law firm has opened an investigation into Johnson's gym incident. For what it's worth ... he eventually deleted the original FB rant, and apologized.

He was suspended last year after the mother of his children accused him of abuse, and he plead no contest to a 2010 domestic violence charge. update_grey_gray_barDo NOT do yoga in UFC fighter Anthony "Rumble" Johnson's gym -- the guy just went OFF on a woman who did ... throwing her yoga mat, saying she's built like a "bag of dry dog food" and making her cry.

Johnson, a light heavyweight, apparently had a nasty run-in with the woman ... telling her, "To the ugly girl in the gym ... if you get in my way or any other athlete again I'll throw your yoga mat across the gym AGAIN."

Johnson's menacing FB post continues ... "Who in their right mind stretches where ppl are suppose to lift? You need more than stretching to help that beat up body." It appears the woman burst into tears and complained to the front desk ... and Johnson ripped her for that too.

In the most prickish way possible, he also threatened to attack again if she shows up with her yoga mat. He closed with, "Understand? Good girl ... One more thing stop wearing sports bras when your tummy look like a old country red clay dirt road."

Ronda Rousey

Loses UFC Title Belt ...

For Charity

8/5/2015 2:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0805-main-ronda-rousey-akm-gsiIt finally happened ... Ronda Rousey lost her title belt, but in the most awesome way possible.

Ronda happily handed over a UFC Women's Bantamweight belt on Wednesday to a judo school in Rio de Janeiro because she's pretty tight with the instructor and his students.

A UFC spokesman tells TMZ Sports ... Ronda's actually worked out with kids at Instituto Recao in the past, and the guy who runs the place is an Olympic medalist in judo, just like Ronda.

She's reportedly made huge financial donations to the school in the past, but this time she offered up a replica of the belt she retained Saturday night after her 34 second dismantling of Bethe Correia.

Not much more Ronda can do to leave her mark on Brazil. 

UFC's Jon Jones

Mentoring Kids at Boys & Girls Club

'Getting Life Back On Track'

7/30/2015 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0730-john-jones-twitter-01Jon Jones is taking Dana White's advice to heart -- cleaning himself up and working with the community to get his life back on track ... and today, he mentored kids at a Boys & Girls Club. 

The former UFC champ hit up the B&GC in Albuquerque, New Mexico -- where he talked to the kids about the importance of working hard to make their dreams come true. 

But the best part -- one of the kids challenged Jon to play the UFC video game on Playstation ... AND CRUSHED JONES (who was playing as himself). 

Sources close to Jones tell us ... Jon has been working hard to get his life back in order ever since his hit and run arrest --  doing volunteer community service and spending lots of time in the gym. 

As for resuming his MMA career, we're told "nothing's out of the question" -- but he's been focusing a lot of his time on mentoring and coaching other fighters.  

Jones is still suspended from the UFC -- but check out this recent video of Dana White (below) ... it's clear he's still a fan of the guy and if he keeps up the good work, we're guessing we haven't seen the last of him in the octagon.  

Colin Farrell

Conor McGregor Could Be King

7/24/2015 9:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Conor McGregor is the greatest thing to come out of Ireland since Guinness -- or at least that's how you're gonna feel after watching his countryman Colin Farrell gush about the UFC badass. 

We got Colin outside Jimmy Kimmel's studio Thursday evening ... and, somewhat foolishly, asked if he was a fan of the UFC Featherweight champ. Colin went way beyond Conor's fight skills, and went off about his character and spirit.  

He even says Conor's having a HUGE effect on "all the people at home." Check it out ... Colin makes it sound like Conor could be a bona fide Irish leader. Take that Bono!

For the record ... Conor will knock you out much faster than Guinness.

Serge Ibaka

Matt Barnes Is Just a Clown ...

But I'll Still Kick His Ass

7/22/2015 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The next UFC superfight might just have a little NBA flavor to it  ... 'cause hoops star Serge Ibaka tells TMZ Sports he's serious about battling Matt Barnes ... he's just gotta win a championship first.

In case you missed it ... Barnes went on ESPN's "SportsNation" earlier this week and blasted Ibaka, calling him a "fake tough guy" and saying he's desperate to fight OKC's big man.

Ibaka fired back on Twitter ...  asking UFC honcho Dana White if he'd be interested in (awesomely) putting the NBA stars in the Octagon. But last night in Hollywood, Serge seemed to dismiss Barnes as more of a clown and less of a fighter. Nonetheless, he says he'll still kick Barnes' ass ... after he's taken care of one important piece of biz.

Check it out ... we think Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will have to step in for this fight to happen.
