EXCLUSIVE

0210-miller-mug-01

update_graphic_red_bar11:58 AM PT -- We just got Mayhem's mug shot. Yeeesh. update_grey_gray_barEx-UFC star Jason "Mayhem" Miller was arrested for DUI this weekend -- and we're told officers brought the cavalry to the arrest scene, just in case he decided to get violent with cops again.  

FYI -- Mayhem allegedly fought police on TWO separate incidents last year ... grappling with 4 cops in March and attacking officers with a ceramic tile back in October. 

So, when cops got a tip that 35-year-old Miller was driving drunk in Irvine, CA this weekend -- we're told they rolled deep just in case things got crazy this time around too! 

Our sources say there were roughly 15 cops on scene and a K9 unit to provide assistance. 

When the gang arrived to the scene, we're told Miller had "obvious signs of intoxication" -- and then bombed several field sobriety tests. 

He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and hauled to a nearby jail. 

We're told Miller was mouthy with cops during the incident ... but didn't get violent this time -- which is a step in the right direction considering his past. 

Miller was cited and has since been released from custody.

Ronda has previously told us she plans to fight Holly sometime this year -- though no date has been set.

1/20/2016 12:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conor McGregor is still FUMING at Floyd Mayweather for dragging him into a conversation about racism -- saying, "There's people buried in the desert for less than that."

Of course, Mayweather made headlines earlier this month for using McGregor to make a point about racism in combat sports.

"They say [McGregor] talks a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant ... so biased! Like I said before, all I'm saying is this, I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Well, Conor is still pissed about it -- and at a media event for UFC 197 today, he unleashed the fury.

EXCLUSIVE

0119_conor-mcgregor_Garda-logoChalk up another victory for Conor McGregor -- 'cause TMZ Sports has learned the UFC superstar will NOT be charged with a crime for allegedly driving around with a firearm in Ireland.

McGregor later fessed up to brandishing the weapon ... but claimed the firearm was nothing more than an Airsoft gun he was using to practice for a possible movie role. 

BTW, even brandishing an Airsoft gun in public could be a violation an Ireland. 

But good news for Conor ... a rep for the Irish Police Force tells us the investigation is over and officials have determined "no offense was committed."

Conor McGregor Put My Face on Euro Coin Irish Gov. Discussing Proposal

1/13/2016 6:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0113-conor-mcgregor-tmz-01

The Irish government has a VERY interesting topic on the docket today -- politicians are set to discuss a real proposal to put Conor McGregor's face on the EURO COIN!!! 

A fan submitted the proposal back in December, after McGregor's 13-second destruction of Jose Aldo at UFC 194 ... and it got so much momentum, that it has been scheduled for discussion in parliament. 

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for the House of the Oireachtas (Irish legislature) who confirmed the committee is meeting Wednesday about the UFC star ... but says getting Conor's face on the coin is definitely an uphill battle.

0113-subasset-conor-mcgregor-instagram-03"There are some European-wide stipulations that would need to be met for a petition like this to actually be enforced, so it's a longshot."

Basically ... even if Ireland approved the move, the remaining countries that use the Euro would also have to approve the change in order to get McGregor's face on money. 

As for Conor, he's pushing for it -- saying, "It would be a true honour for me to be immortalised on the €1 coin! Thank you to my fans for the petition!Let's go Oireachtas! Vote YES :-)"

Stay tuned ...
