George Lopez Conor McGregor Should Be Deported

4/9/2018 8:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor should get a 1-way ticket back to Ireland after his violent bus attack -- so says George Lopez

Like the rest of the world, George saw Conor's dolly-throwing rampage at Barclays Center last week ... and says he was shocked by the UFC mega-star's actions.

"What is that?" Lopez told TMZ Sports. "If you got that much cash, why are you throwing hand carts through the window?"

Our guy then brought up the possibility of McGregor getting a lifetime boot from the US of A, and he voted "yes" ... before making light of Trump's Mexican border wall.

Not sure how exactly that applies to Conor ... but his bottom line -- get the Irishman the hell off American soil!!

FYI, Conor was STILL IN NYC as of Sunday night. Pretty shocking given the circumstances.

Conor McGregor Rollin' In NYC With Irish Bus Attack Gang

4/9/2018 6:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor and his gang of Irish thugs were still together in NYC on Sunday night -- this time, without a dolly ... but they did get physical with our photog. 

The UFC superstar left the Loews Regency in NYC flanked by Cian Cowley (black hooded sweatshirt) -- the man who was arrested with Conor on Thursday for attacking the UFC bus at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. 

Dillon Danis and MMA fighter Charlie Ward were also with Conor -- both guys were also part of the crew that accompanied McGregor to the bus attack. 

This time, McGregor wasn't talking -- but it was definitely a show of force ... with one member of Conor's entourage grabbing our camera to shut us down right on the street. 

Shocking Conor is still in the States considering he's facing multiple criminal charges (including a felony) -- but maybe he truly thinks he's untouchable. 

We'll see in June, when McGregor is due back in court

Action Bronson Conor & Khabib, Scrap in Queens ... I'll Bring the Grub!

4/8/2018 10:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Action Bronson says Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov don't have to wait for an octagon bout to beat each other bloody -- they can do it on his turf ... on a full stomach.

We got Bam Bam Saturday outside the Barclays Center in NYC ahead of UFC 223 -- where Khabib went on to strip McGregor of his lightweight world championship belt -- and he tells us the two fighters oughta duke it out in Queens ... Jamaica Ave, specifically.

Action says he'll be there, too, ready with the finest cuisine Jamaica, Queens has to offer -- patties! His pal and fellow UFC fighter, Ilir Latifi was with him as well, and he had a take on why Conor might've pulled the now-notorious bus stunt last week, which got him charged.

Let's just say he doesn't think it's all anger issues. 

BTW ... Khabib continued taunting Conor after winning the lightweight belt. Maybe he'll take Action up on his street fight suggestion ... Conor might pass, though. Just a thought.

Michael Bisping Conor McGregor Will Bounce Back ... But Don't Drop the Soap!!!

4/7/2018 7:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC Middleweight fighter Michael Bisping is extremely forgiving of Conor McGregor's violent antics, but apparently still thinks jail time is in Conor's future.

Bisping, who himself is a smack-talkin' bad boy, was leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills Friday night with pal Mickey Rourke

Michael scoffs at the idea Conor is finished -- after getting arrested for throwing a dolly into a UFC bus and injuring multiple fighters -- and says everyone f's up and that doesn't define the rest of their lives.

And this is interesting ... Conor brought his boyz along for the attack, and Michael doesn't flinch when our photog characterizes it as a gang.  

Travis Barker Defends Conor McGregor 'I Would've Done the Same Thing'

4/7/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC super-fan Travis Barker says he's got Conor McGregor's back when it comes to his violent bus attack at Barclays Center ... even though he went a little overboard.

Don't get it twisted -- Travis thinks it's terrible other UFC fighters got caught up in McGregor's window-smashin' madness ... but the blink-182 drummer says Conor HAD TO retaliate after his boy, Artem Lobov, got strong-armed by Khabib's team.

"I would've probably done the same thing if someone punked my friend," Barker told TMZ Sports in Calabasas. "I love him to death ... crazy motherf**ker."

At the same time -- "I can't agree with everything he did ... he has to apologize."

FYI, McGregor bailed outta jail Friday and is facing charges of assault and felony criminal mischief ... but Travis says the UFC should "slap him on his wrist" and let him off so he can fight later this year.

We'll see ...

Bruce Buffer slays the mic every time he steps inside the Octagon ... but can the legendary UFC announcer deliver when ya put him on the spot?!

We put that to the test earlier this week when our guy, Michael J. Babcock, tossed Buff all the craziest names of fighters competing at UFC 223 on Saturday.

Bruce CRUSHED it -- nailing ridiculous tongue-twisters from Karolina Kowalkiewicz to Joanna Jedrzejczyk to Khabib Nurmagomedov ... and belting 'em out with extra sauce!!

Buff's pipes are so money, international EDM superstar Steve Aoki just released a track (and music video) paying tribute to his iconic catch-phrase, "It's time."

BB gave us the inside scoop on how it came together ... and the wild video call he got from Aoki once he produced the track!

The 'Embedded' ep. also features Dana White addressing the incident with fighters who were affected, and interviews with other UFC stars about what went down.

We broke the story ... White slammed conspiracy theories that this was all one big publicity stunt, and based on the raw reactions seen in this video -- it seems like the craziness was 100% legit.

As we reported ... Conor turned himself in to cops and was released from custody Friday after his court hearing, where he was charged with 3 misdemeanor counts of assault and 1 felony criminal mischief charge.

Conor McGregor Free Man Posts Bail After Court Hearing

4/6/2018 12:46 PM PDT

Conor McGregor was released from custody and is most likely getting ready to fly back to Ireland after appearing in court where he was arraigned on charges stemming from the UFC bus attack.

McGregor stood silently as the judge listed the charges against him -- 3 misdemeanor assault charges and 1 felony criminal mischief charge.

The judge stuck to the bail plan and set his bond at $50k. The judge also allowed McGregor to keep his passport ... meaning he can fly home to Ireland.

The judge also ordered Conor to stay away from the victims of the attack, which include UFC fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg. 

We broke the story ... McGregor turned himself in late Thursday night to NYPD in Brooklyn ... and spent the night at the police station before being cuffed and transported to court.

Chiesa was injured in the attack -- and was forced to pull out of his UFC 223 fight. Chiesa met with police twice on Thursday ... and ultimately decided to file a report against McGregor.

McGregor is due back in court on June 14.

Justin Bieber On Conor McGregor: 'We All Make Mistakes'

4/6/2018 1:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber isn't ready to write off Conor McGregor just yet ... telling TMZ Sports when it comes to the UFC's violent attack, "We all make mistakes."

Bieber has been following McGregor's career for years -- and publicly supported him when Conor fought Nate Diaz back in 2016. 

He even vouched for McGregor's toughness before Conor fought his old friend, Floyd Mayweather

So, when we saw Biebs out in Beverly Hills following a gym workout with his crew, we had to ask if he was concerned for Conor moving forward. 

"I think Conor will be fine," Justin says ... "We all make mistakes."

The big question now ... will Dana White be as forgiving as Bieber when it comes to Conor's future

UFC's Khabib Gets New Opponent for UFC 223 ... Main Event Still On!!

4/6/2018 1:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

UFC 223 still has a main event!!!

Khabib Nurmagomedov will be scrappin' with lightweight contender Al Iaquinta, who's steppin' up after Max Holloway got yanked from the fight during weigh-ins ... the UFC announced.

After Max got pulled, it was rumored former champ Anthony Pettis would step in ... but he was reportedly asking for too much cash.

So, the honor of facing the UFC's scariest dude goes to Ragin' Al -- a lightweight contender most famous for feuding with Dana White and the UFC brass. Iaquinta's currently riding a 5-fight win streak. 

FYI, Khabib's still eligible to win the 155-pound title the UFC is stripping from Conor McGregor ... but it appears Al is not in the running for the belt.

It's been a crazy sequence of events to determine Khabib's opponent. Last Friday, Tony Ferguson suffered a freak accident -- tripping during a media sesh. Then, Holloway answered the call ... but doctors abruptly forced him to stop cutting weight Friday morning. 

The fight was in serious jeopardy ... until now.
