The reigning UFC middleweight champ tells TMZ Sports he's ready to fight Georges RIGHT NOW -- but St-Pierre is holding up the process.

As for allegations Bisping's ducking other fighters like Yoel Romero and Jacare Souza -- The Count has some strong words for them too.

UFC's Michelle Waterson Weighs In On Breast Implant Rules

4/10/2017 4:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC strawweight Michelle Waterson -- aka the Karate Hottie -- doesn't like that fellow UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez had to jump through hoops to get cleared to fight with breast implants ... and says all women with fake boobs should be allowed to fight.

The NY State Athletic Commission conducted a review into Gonzalez before UFC 210 once they learned she had implants -- but ultimately cleared her to fight.

Waterson -- who's fighting Rose Namajunas this weekend at UFC on FOX -- says breast implants are no big deal ... and as long as the fighter makes weight, she doesn't think there's any real problem.

Of course, the commission says it is looking out for the health of the fighter (we're guessing to make sure there's no risk of the implant popping) ... but Michelle seems to think there's no real concern.

UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez WILL fight at UFC 210 after the NY State Athletic Commission cleared her to participate despite having breast implants. 

The NYSAC said it conducted a review into Gonzalez based on information that came to light at the weigh in Friday morning. MMAFighting.com said the information was that Gonzalez has breast implants. 

But moments ago, the NYSAC issued a statement saying, "The Commission has completed its review and has cleared Ms. Gonzalez to participate in UFC 210."

She will make her UFC debut against Cynthia Calvillo on Saturday night as planned. 

It's the second major UFC bombshell of the day ... following Daniel Cormier's mysterious weight cut at the UFC 210 weigh-ins ... when he lost 1.2 pounds in 2 minutes.

UFC's Daniel Cormier Mysterious Weight Cut ... Loses 1.2 LBs in 2 mins!

4/7/2017 9:14 AM PDT

How the hell did Daniel Cormier lose 1.2 pounds in 2 minutes??!?

Huge dump? Big puke? Quick sweat session??

That's the question everyone is asking after the UFC star miraculously made weight for his UFC 210 fight after a nearly missing the cut at the official weigh-in Friday morning.

Long story short ... Cormier weighed 206.2 at his initial weigh-in -- 1.2 pounds over weight.

He left the room and came back 2 minutes and 24 seconds later ... and somehow, weighed in at 205 exactly. The fight with "Rumble" Johnson is now official.

But everyone wants to know what changed in those 2 minutes. Some conspiracy theorists think he grabbed the towel that was shielding his naked body and pressed down to fool the scale.

For the record, event officials have called BS on that theory.

We've reached out to D.C. for answers. Stay tuned.

Maybe Chris Weidman knows something we don't ... but the UFC star says the highly anticipated Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight is "100%" going down. 

Weidman appeared on "MMA Report with Mike 'Gunz' Gunzelman" and said his information about the fight is "a fact."

Of course, Dana White has disagreed the last few times we've seen him out -- while he's said he wants the fight to happen, the UFC honcho has said the 2 sides are insanely far apart when it comes to money. But maybe something's changed. 

Still, Weidman seems very confident and explained why he truly believes Mayweather could be in for a VERY painful night.

WWE superstar Baron Corbin hasn't forgotten all of the trash Conor McGregor talked about wrestlers ... and says he wants a shot at the UFC star in the hopes of teaching him a very violent lesson. 

Corbin -- who's wrestling for the WWE intercontinental belt at WrestleMania 33 this weekend -- appeared on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas when he was asked about Conor vs. Floyd. 

After siding with Mayweather, Corbin brought up the comments McGregor made back in August ... when he said most WWE guys are "messed up p**sies" who couldn't hold their own in a real fight. 

Corbin -- a former boxer and NFL lineman  --- clearly took the comments personally, saying, "I would like to slam him on his head a few times."

Vince, Dana ... thoughts?
