Boxer Deontay Wilder Violent Clash At World Trade Center

1/13/2016 2:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Headbutts, punches, trash-talk ... yeah, all hell broke loose during a pre-fight clash between heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder and Artur Szpilka Wednesday -- and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

It all went down at the World Trade Center -- when the two fighters got face-to-face and started yelling at each other.  

That's when Szpilka let the hands fly -- and a scuffle broke out ... with a bunch of people flying in to break it up before the guys killed each other. 

Obviously, these guys are trying to drum up publicity before they get in the ring for the big fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night -- but we're told from people close to the situation, the animosity is real ... these guys hate each other. 

Conor McGregor Put My Face on Euro Coin Irish Gov. Discussing Proposal

The Irish government has a VERY interesting topic on the docket today -- politicians are set to discuss a real proposal to put Conor McGregor's face on the EURO COIN!!! 

A fan submitted the proposal back in December, after McGregor's 13-second destruction of Jose Aldo at UFC 194 ... and it got so much momentum, that it has been scheduled for discussion in parliament. 

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for the House of the Oireachtas (Irish legislature) who confirmed the committee is meeting Wednesday about the UFC star ... but says getting Conor's face on the coin is definitely an uphill battle.

0113-subasset-conor-mcgregor-instagram-03"There are some European-wide stipulations that would need to be met for a petition like this to actually be enforced, so it's a longshot."

Basically ... even if Ireland approved the move, the remaining countries that use the Euro would also have to approve the change in order to get McGregor's face on money. 

As for Conor, he's pushing for it -- saying, "It would be a true honour for me to be immortalised on the €1 coin! Thank you to my fans for the petition!Let's go Oireachtas! Vote YES :-)"

Stay tuned ...

Conor McGregor Cops Investigate Gun Photo

1/8/2016 6:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0108-mcgregor-instagramUFC champ Conor McGregor is under investigation by cops in Ireland for a gun related violation ... after he posted a pic of what appears to be himself with an automatic rifle.

Conor's back home in Dublin and on Thursday he posted a photo of someone wearing a ski mask and holding the gun while sitting in a fancy sports car. He captioned the pic, "Put the fight game in the bag and step away from the vehicle."

There's no way to tell for sure it's Conor with the gun, but the car does look like his. Ireland has very strict gun laws -- most civilian weapons are licensed only for hunting or agriculture -- and cops in Dublin confirm they are looking into McGregor's photo.

However, there's some evidence this is just a case of big boys playing with their toys. Last week, Conor posted a few videos of himself shooting at a target in his kitchen. The guns in those vids are clearly Airsoft pellet guns.

Problem is, according to police even brandishing an Airsoft gun in public could be a violation.

One thin layer of paint -- and several thousand miles -- is all that's standing between you and Ronda. Enjoy!

UFC's Julianna Pena 911 Call in Bar Fight ... They're Wiping Blood on the Door!

1/6/2016 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Former Ultimate Fighter champ Julianna Peña got into a bar brawl with a bunch of guys -- and it got so out of control ... blood was all over the place.

911 callers reported the bantamweight fighter and her trainer Josh Gow were taking on security guards at Zola's in Spokane on Dec. 20. The audio is pretty brutal ... you can actually hear the fight still going behind a caller who said, "They're wiping their bloody faces on the door."

According to cops, Peña and Gow had actually gotten into a fight at a different bar -- with 20 people throwing fists -- and then bolted to Zola's. Security there refused to let them in because it was past closing time.

Cops say Peña -- who won Ultimate Fighter 18 in 2013 -- lunged toward bouncers who were trying to keep them out. She allegedly busted out some MMA moves, kicking 2 of them in the groin. 

Police arrested Peña and she's been charged with 2 counts of assault. She's due back in court later this month.

Bruce Buffer Floyd's Race Talk Is BS ... And Dangerous

1/5/2016 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather needs to chill using the race card on Conor McGregor ... that's according to UFC announcer Bruce Buffer. McGregor's the man in UFC because he kicks ass ... not 'cause he's white.

Bruce was leaving Gold's Gym in Venice when we asked him about Floyd saying McGregor getting a pass from fans and media for his smack talk ... because he's white.

Check out the clip -- Bruce doesn't give one iota of credence to Floyd's statement ... and says he thinks racially charged statements like that actually damage race relations in America.

Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor Gets Away With Trash Talk Because He's White

1/4/2016 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0103_floyd_mayweather_tmzFloyd Mayweather says UFC champ Conor McGregor can be as brash and arrogant as he wants without catching any heat ... because of the color of his skin.

Mayweather did an interview with the guys over at FightHype.com last week, and when the subject of the flamboyant McGregor came up ... Mayweather went off.

"He talks a lot trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased."

He goes on to say ... "I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Floyd then brings Ronda Rousey and Laila Ali into it ... questioning why Laila didn't get the endorsement and movie love Ronda does ... even though he feels Ali accomplished more.

"Laila Ali did the same thing in better fashion ... But you never heard them saying that she was the baddest woman to ever fight on the planet."

Anderson Silva THE FAMILY THAT PAINTBALLS TOGETHER Stays Together

1228-anderson-silva-instagramHow does a guy who bashes people's faces in for a living bond with his family over the holidays?

If you're UFC superstar Anderson Silva ... SIMULATED WARFARE!!!

Silva -- currently training for a big fight against Michael Bisping on Feb 27 -- took 12 family members out to Hollywood Sports in Bellflower, CA this past Saturday for some yuletide paintballin' fun.

We spoke with the owner of HS ... who tells us Anderson is a frequent visitor and believes the time shooting at each others heads promotes family unity ... and helps work off all that turkey.

How hardcore is Silva about his paintball? We're told he owns his own custom-made military grade tactical gear ... and loves to compete on the "Saving Private Ryan" battle course.

Still ... he's one of the only guys we can think of who's more dangerous WITHOUT a gun.

UFC's Ryan Bader I Could Beat Up a Jedi ... Here's How.

EXCLUSIVE

Talk about living up to your nickname ... 

UFC superstar Ryan "Darth" Bader (get it?) says he'd kick the living snot out of a Jedi in a street fight ... and he's even got a strategy to do it. 

The clip is pretty funny ... especially since "Darth" says he's not even a real 'Star Wars' fan -- he just liked the nickname better than the other option, "Master" (get it?). 

Bader fights Rumble Johnson at UFC Fight Night in January ... the force is strong with those two.
