Nick was in Vegas this past weekend for the big fight and hit up Wet Republic at the MGM Grand where he seemed to have both hands full ... with a super hot chick.

Turns out the woman in the bikini is named Heather -- and she's been close with Diaz for a while now.

breaking nose

0713-rory-macdonald-twitter-01Here's what 2 black eyes, 1 broken nose and a broken foot look like ... courtesy of UFC stud Rory MacDonald

Rory battled it out with Robbie Lawler at UFC 189 in one of the most violent brawls of all time ... and even though Rory lost the fight, everyone is hailing him as a champ for fighting through the blood and the pain.  

In fact, both fighters were hurt so badly, they each went to the hospital DIRECTLY after the bout ... instead of hanging around for the usual post-fight news conference.  

Don't worry ... despite the fact they killed each other in the octagon, they were super friendly at the hospital ... where Lawler was treated for a massive split lip. 

And the best part ... they SMILED for the pic ... which, given their injuries, had to hurt like a BIATCH. 

Yeah, these guys are tough.

Once again, an adorable little kid got the microphone at a Conor McGregor UFC press conference -- and said something hilarious/disturbing in front of a packed house. 

"Conor, can you please rip Chad Mendes' head off?"

It's the first time we've ever seen Conor speechless.

Exclusive Details

0709-travis-browne-getty-01update_graphic_red_bar1:09 PM PT -- Travis' manager John Fosco tells TMZ Sports ... the UFC fighter adamantly denies the allegations saying all claims of domestic violence are completely false.

Fosco says they believe Jenna is simply trying to smear Travis' name -- after finding out that Travis recently cheated on her with another woman. 

Fosco says the decision to pull the fighter from UFC Fight Week activities was mutual -- and he's "happy" the organization is running an investigation. 

"This is part of being in the public eye and we’ll just have to deal with it”update_grey_gray_barThe UFC has pulled fighter Travis Browne from UFC 189 Fight Week activities after his wife claimed he beat her up ... and posted pics to prove it. 

Browne's wife, Jenna Renee Webb posted graphic and disturbing photos on her Instagram page showing brutal injuries she claims she suffered when Browne attacked her. 

FYI -- Browne is 6'7", 236 pounds and has a record of 17-3-1. 

We spoke with Webb who tells us the incident went down back in February -- but claims she DID NOT and WILL NOT go to police ... instead, Webb says she plans to divorce Browne and move on. 

0709-sub-jenna-renee-instagram-01"I did what I felt in my heart that I had to do to deliver a message to other people that are being abused and other people that he may potentially abuse in the future," Webb says.

"I do not plan on pressing charges. I’ve prayed for a long time that he would become a better person, and I will continue to pray for him in hopes that he can make changes and salvage a life for him and his boys."

Attempts to reach Browne for comment have been unsuccessful. 

The UFC also issued a statement saying while Browne has been temporarily sidelined -- "every athlete is deserving of due process, and this situation, as with any official allegations, will be thoroughly reviewed and thoroughly investigated by an independent party."

EXCLUSIVE

0707_Aaron-Zalewski_brittney_palmer_tmz-gettyUFC Octagon girl Brittney Palmer's husband allegedly tossed her around like a rag doll and choked her so brutally -- he's been rung up for attempted murder ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The massive fight went down at the couple's L.A. home on the evening of June 11 ... when Brittney and Aaron Zalewski got into an argument. He had previously overheard a casting agent call her "babe" over the phone, and allegedly went ballistic.

In docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... LAPD says things got physical when they wrestled for her phone -- Zalewski noticed she was recording the argument, and during the struggle he threw Palmer, and she hit her head on a bedpost.

Brittney told cops Zalewski yelled, "Pack your f**king bags and go!"  -- but wouldn't let her leave. She says he threw her down again -- pinning her face down on a mattress, with his knee in her back. She says she struggled to breathe for 2 minutes while he held her down.

And there's this -- Brittney says during the fight Zalewski scratched his own arms and yelled ... "Why are you making me do this? I just wanted you to love me."

When Brittney finally escaped the house, she called police ... around 1:25 AM on June 12. Cops arrived and busted Zalewski for attempted murder, spousal battery, and criminal threats.

He was released on $1 million bail the next day. The case is now with the L.A. City Attorney ... who will decide whether to charge Zalewski.

As for C.M. Punk ... the ex-WWE superstar is "looking phenomenal" during his training. White says he's a beast in the making. Stay tuned on that one ...

UFC Champ Fabricio Werdum

Floors Reporter

With Vicious Leg Kick ... Wasn't Even Trying!

6/9/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum unleashed a featherweight version of a leg kick on an MMA reporter ... and it was still enough to send him to the ground in agony.

Aaron Tru has a history of allowing people to beat the hell out of him for no reason (check out the Ronda Rousey clip below) and this time he allowed Werdum -- who stands at 6'4" and weighs 232 pounds -- to kick him in the back of the leg. 

It goes about how you would expect ... with Tru laid out in agony ... despite the fact Werdum claims he only used 40% of his strength. 

Seems like he used 39% more than he needed to.

Ronda Rousey

Signed Crappy Broken Car

... Gets $20k At Auction!!!

6/8/2015 7:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605_ronda_rousey_car_launchRonda Rousey might be the greatest car salesperson EVER ... because she just sold her broken, beat up, dirty Honda Accord for roughly 4 TIMES it's actual value!!! 

The UFC superstar (along with her sponsor Armbar Nation) was auctioning off her '05 Accord on eBay -- a car that has a broken transmission, 156,000 miles and is filled with a bunch of Ronda's old crap. 

It also features a personal signed note from Ronda, thanking the car for its loyal service as she fought her way to the top of the fight game. 

The professionals say the car SHOULD be worth between $4k and $5k ... but it just sold to the highest bidder ... for $21,300!!!!

Ronda tells TMZ Sports, "I'll miss the worn in feeling you get from like a favorite pair of jeans or shoes you've had for years that molded to you perfectly."

So far, the identity of the buyer has not been revealed -- but Rousey has made it very clear, she hopes the new owner isn't just some crazy wack job

Congrats!
