Anderson Silva I Want Kick Conor McGregor’s Ass … I Think He’s Scared Though

EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor is too freakin’ chicken to step into the ring with Anderson Silva, at least that’s what Anderson Silva thinks, saying he’d love to fight Conor, but doubting Conor wants any part of him.

Conor has said back in October that he’d be interested in fighting Silva, saying he was willing to bulk up a little to get into the Octagon with Spider and duke it out.

Since then, Conor has taken a beating at the hands of Khabib, but when we got Silva out, he said he doesn’t care about that, telling our guy he still wants the fight.

“I say let’s go do it. 180 is the perfect weight for me, I think it’s good for McGregor, and let’s go do it because that’s amazing. That’s for the fans.”

One problem … Anderson isn’t sure Conor still wants it, and is using the s-word as the reason why.

“It’s close to happening you know, but McGregor, come on man. Let’s go do this. Don’t run man, don’t run. You scared? I don’t believe that you’re scared, let’s go.”

Here’s the thing … the fight kinda makes sense now. Conor might want to take a tune up before a Khabib rematch, and who better to fight than a much older opponent with a huge name?

Unless of course, McGregor thinks the Spider can still bite … ball is in your court Notorious One.

Nike’s Phil Knight on Kaepernick ‘I Don’t Know If He’s Being Blackballed’

EXCLUSIVE

Nike has put their money behind Colin Kaepernick — and now the man who founded the company tells TMZ Sports, he believes the QB should still be playing in the NFL. 

We saw shoe legend, Phil Knight leaving Michael’s restaurant in New York the other day and while he threw his support behind Colin — he stopped short when we asked if he believed CK is being blackballed by the NFL. 

“I don’t know,” Knight told us … “I don’t know.”

80-year-old Knight still serves as Chairman Emeritus for the Swoosh — the company that recently inked Kaepernick as the face of its “Just Do It” 30th Anniversary Campaign. 

After the first Kaepernick ad dropped back in September, the brand reportedly saw a 31% boost in online sales … so, ya gotta think Phil would be pumped about bringing Kaep back into the fold. 

One more thing … what kind of shoes does the $ 30 BILLION Nike founder rock out in public? 

Phil says they’re special “PK 80s” — a special line of shoes created to honor Phil’s 80th birthday. We’re having a tough time finding the exact model and value of the shoes … but we’re working on it.

Ice Cube Hopes Lamar Odom Joins BIG3 … ‘He’s Still Gotta Try Out’

EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube is jacked up for Lamar Odom‘s dreams of a pro basketball comeback … but he says there is a catch if the ex-Laker wants to make it in the BIG3 …

“He’s still gotta try out like everybody else.”

Yup … Ice Cube ain’t doing the 2-time NBA champ any favors — telling TMZ Sports, L.O.’s gotta work out just like the rest of the ballers who want in on his 3-on-3 league.

But … Cube tells us video he saw recently of Odom on the court and in the gym was promising — and he’s hopeful Lamar can make a squad.

That said, Cube notes that Odom was training in a gym without elite players trying to shut him down — and the game is A LOT different when there’s a defense on the court. 

Cube’s advice on the next steps Odom needs to take to make it? “Get healthy, get in shape and get to the combine!”

Seems Lamar’s already on it …

UFC’s Kamaru Usman Dana Offered Me Colby Covington … But He’s Scared Of Me!!

EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Kamaru Usman says Dana White offered him a fight with Colby Covington next month … and he’s waiting on Donald Trump‘s favorite fighter to sign the contract. 

Both fighters have been dying to get a shot at the welterweight champ Tyron Woodley — and it seems the winner of the proposed January 19 bout would get their wish.

TMZ Sports talked to Usman … who tells us Dana called this week and made the offer.

Kamaru ain’t exactly confident the fight will actually happen … saying Colby has refused to accept the match on 4 other occasions in the past.

So yeah, Kamaru and Colby hate each other … and straight-up, Usman says Covington is scared.

If he accepts, Usman vs. Covington would join a bunch of solid fights on the first UFC event on ESPN — including Paige VanZant vs. Rachael Ostovich and Greg Hardy vs. Allen Crowder

Usman just dominated Rafael dos Anjos when they clashed on Saturday night at “The Ultimate Fighter” finale. 

Covington’s last fight was also against RDA — Colby scored the “W” in a 5-round decision at UFC 225 back in June. 

After the fight, Colby underwent surgery to correct a nasal issue. He visited Trump at the White House in August and took a pic with POTUS while Donald held the UFC interim welterweight championship belt over his shoulder.

We reached out to Covington for comment … so far, no word back.

Deji I Want a Rematch with Jake Paul … ‘But He’s Too P***y’

Breaking News

YouTube superstar Deji says he wants REVENGE on his arch nemesis, Jake Paul, after their PPV boxing match back in August … but there’s just one small thing keeping that from happening.

“He’s too p***y to fight me again.”

The first fight was wild … with Jake getting the victory when Deji’s camp threw in the towel in the 5th round of their bloody slugfest. 

Deji was spending some of that hard-earned fight money on Rodeo Drive this week when he was asked about the possibility of the 2 YouTubers beating each other up in the ring again — but it sounds like it ain’t happenin’.

Why?? — “He’s too scared to lose the title.”

But, Jake Paul ain’t the only guy Deji’s beefing with right now — turns out, he’s in a real-life feud with his own brother, KSI

KSI is reportedly furious with Deji after his lil bro posted KSI’s bank statements online. Deji also made some scandalous claims involving his brother and a woman. 

But, Deji says the feud runs deeper than that — explaining, “There’s a lot of stuff my brother’s done.”

Doesn’t seem like they’re even close to burying the hatchet at this point which is crazy considering how close they were. 

Deji also says he’s got a big problem with KSI’s crew, “The Sidemen”  — a group of British YouTube stars — and says he’s never really been cool with them.

Bottom line — lots of beef with no real hope in sight.
