1/17/2017 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bob Arum is calling major BS on Floyd Mayweather, Dana White, and Conor McGregor ... saying all this talk about boxing vs MMA superfight is "absolute nonsense."

We got Arum out at Craig's in L.A. and asked him if all the back and forth between Floyd and Dana was going to end up in an actual fight ... or if it's just sound and fury signifying nothing.

Arum's the guy to ask -- he's made some of the biggest fights in boxing history -- and he couldn't have been more concrete about this one ... which he says ain't ever gonna happen.

We love you, Bob ... but here's one time we really hope you're wrong as hell.

Floyd Mayweather is spitting more venom at Dana White -- calling him a "small boss" who used to carry his bags back in the day.

Mayweather went off on the UFC honcho at the Barclays Center this weekend -- once again trashing Dana's $25 MILLION offer to fight Conor McGregor ... this time, he took a stroll down memory lane. 

"Dana White ... he was a player. He was a boss ... but he was a small boss."

"I can remember Dana White used to hang around me and Jeff Mayweather and carry my bags."

Mayweather says he used to be cool with White until ... "all the sudden he cut his head bald and he's such a tough guy. He's such a tough guy."

Just a few days ago, Dana told TMZ Sports why Floyd would be a fool to shoot down the offer.

Ronda Rousey could have a golden opportunity to improve her stand-up fighting game -- because Floyd Mayweather says he's willing to work with her ... if she'll give him a chance.

We got Floyd leaving Pristine Jewelers in NYC (he dropped roughly $200k on gifts for family and friends) -- when he told us he has nothing against Ronda and would love to help her out.

"I'll work with her if she's willing to work with me," Floyd said.

Ronda has blasted Floyd in the past over his domestic violence conviction. Floyd fired back by saying he makes way more money than she does.

But now, Mayweather says it's water under the bridge for him ... and it's her call.

Floyd Mayweather is shooting down Dana White's $25 MILLION offer to fight Conor McGregor ... saying simply, "You're a f**king comedian!"

Earlier Friday, White appeared on 'The Herd' on FS1 and made the official offer for the fight -- $25 mil each plus part of the Pay-Per-View profits.

The message ... Dana's number is WAYYYY too low. 

Back to the drawing board.

EXCLUSIVE

0111-reagan-penn-facebook-02The younger brother of UFC star BJ Penn was arrested Tuesday after a crazy incident on an airplane in which he allegedly yelled, "I won't get off the plane without a fight."

Reagan Penn -- a former MMA fighter himself -- was on a Delta plane at LAX headed to Phoenix to see his big brother throw down at UFC Fight Night 103 when he got into it with flight crew over alcohol.

We're told Penn wanted booze before takeoff, crew refused to serve him and an argument ensued. He was eventually told to deboard the plane but he refused. 

Cops were called but the standoff continued -- and he allegedly told officers, "I won't get off the plane without a fight."

A witness tells us Penn commented that his brother would "kick his ass" if he didn't make it to PHX for the fight. 

Penn was "taken down" by at least two officers who handcuffed him and arrested for him trespassing. He was taken to a nearby station where he was booked. 

Penn has since been released. No word if he made it to PHX yet.
