Forrest Griffin Conor's $300k Training Camp ... 'Money Well Spent!'

8/22/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The $300,000 Conor McGregor shelled out for his training camp -- on everything from masseuses, to nutritionists and Diaz-alike sparring partners -- was WORTH IT ... so says Forrest Griffin.  

Remember, Conor said he was sparing no expense to avenge his loss to Nate Diaz -- and told ESPN he was blowing out the budget to make his camp the best training experience money could buy. 

Well, when we saw Griffin after UFC 202 -- he told us the results speak for themselves.

Griffin also points out that McGregor must have studied Nate's 2014 fight against Rafael dos Anjos ... when RDA destroyed Nate with a series of crushing leg strikes.

Like Conor McGregor was gonna miss a victory party?

Here's video of The Notorious heading into Encore Beach Club at the Wynn on Sunday -- one day after beating Nate Diaz in one of the craziest UFC fights we've ever seen. 

Conor didn't look too bruised up ... but he did enter the party with a pretty obvious limp. 

0822-conor-mcgregor-encore-beach-club-02McGregor insists he did NOT break his foot -- but banged up his shin during repeated strikes to Diaz during the UFC 202 fight. 

Still, he didn't let the pain keep from partying with all the bikini-clad chicks at the club! 

Congrats!

UFC Prez Dana White Nixes McGregor & Diaz Trilogy ... 'I'm Movin' On'

8/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0707-nate-diaz-conor-mcgregor-PRIMARY-GETTY-01It's as shocking as Saturday night's fight was awesome ... there will be no Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz trilogy ... according to the man who makes the decision.

Dana White tells TMZ Sports he wants Conor to defend his title against interim champ Jose Aldo. Dana says, "The war was fun and super successful but I'm movin' on." Here's the rub -- Conor beefed up for his fight against the much larger Diaz. Conor normally fights at 145 and swelled to 168 to fight Diaz.

Dana says Conor has two options -- either fight Aldo or surrender his title to him -- or cut weight to 155 and fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title. 

Dana says under any scenario, he's closing the books on McGregor vs. Diaz.

Dana White I Don't Believe Jon Jones Used 'Roids

8/20/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jon Jones is ALMOST out of Dana White's doghouse ... with the UFC honcho telling TMZ Sports he doesn't believe the ex-champ was using steroids ... but he did take SOMETHING he shouldn't have. 

White joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (weeknights on FS1) -- and spelled out the latest with Jones and the failed drug tests that got him kicked off the card at UFC 200

"He was accused of taking the drug that you take when you're getting off steroids ... and it's looking now like it's not the case. He did not take that drug. He took something else that had it in it."

White says he's not as pissed off at Jones as he was in the wake of the failed test -- but he's still upset. 

"I'm a little happier now that he wasn't taking that drug and that I now believe that he wasn't taking steroids ... but still, you can't put anything in your body without notifying USADA or the Nevada State Athletic Commission."

Andre Berto Advice For Conor McGregor ... After 'Crackhead Ese' Insult

8/18/2016 9:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Andre Berto is giving Conor McGregor a warning Marsellus Wallace would approve of ... saying after the "crackhead ese" diss Conor put on Nate Diaz ... his Stockton privileges have been revoked.

Stockton is, of course, Nate Diaz's hometown ... and when we got Berto out in L.A. we asked if the (racist?) insult Conor threw out at the UFC 202 presser Wednesday was over the line.

Check out the clip -- Berto says yes ... so much so that he thinks it'd be better if Conor avoided the lovely city of Stockton altogether for a while ... for fear of Nate sympathizers.

We get you, Berto ... but there's one time Conor definitely won't be able to avoid Stockton ... Saturday night.
