Tom Brady He’s ‘Shoving It Up the Haters’ Asses’ … Says Dana White

EXCLUSIVE

 

Dana White isn’t just a Patriots superfan — he’s friends with Tom Brady — and tells TMZ Sports he loves that TB12 is “shoving it up all the haters’ asses one more time.”

A bunch of football experts predicted Brady’s demise this season — saying his skills are falling off and his reign of dominance was finally over. 

But, after slaughtering the L.A. Chargers in the playoffs last week, Brady and the Pats are playing in the AFC Championship game against the Chiefs on Sunday … and White says he LOVES IT! 

“Everybody was talking sh*t this year,” White said.

“Everybody was talking, ‘Oh, he should retire. Oh, the Patriots suck, they can’t win a game.’ We’re heading into another AFC Championship and if we win I think that’s 8 straight AFC Championships. And, it’s a record and he’s going to another Super Bowl.”

“So, shut up!! He’s shoving it up all the haters’ asses one more time and I love it.”

Fun fact, Tom Brady became one of the celebrity minority co-owners of the UFC when WME/IMG bought the MMA organization back in 2016 … so, he and Dana are technically colleagues!

As for if Dana will be at Arrowhead Stadium for the game on Sunday — White says there’s no way in hell. It’s too damn cold! 

Betty White You Bet I’m Celebrating #97 … It’s Poker Night!!!

Betty White‘s been on this earth for 97 years, but she’ll never stop hustlin’ … especially when it comes to playing cards.

The Hollywood legend’s celebrating her 97th birthday today, and sources close to her tell TMZ she’s using the special occasion as a reason to hook up with some friends Thursday night and play poker.

We’re told Betty’s poker pals go way back — she’s been anteing up with them for decades.

As for her health — we’re told Betty’s feeling great and happy as ever. She was spotted out on a rainy day in Beverly Hills Wednesday, and as always … she had nothing but smiles for her fans as she ran errands, accompanied by her driver.

As we told you … the ‘Golden Girls’ star worked on her bday a couple years ago, but took it easy at a nice dinner with friends for her 96th.

Cheers to another year, Betty! Happy birthday!!! 

Dana White Responds to Ariel Helwani ‘I Don’t Give a Sh*t What He Thinks’

EXCLUSIVE

Dana White isn’t taking kindly to being called “tone-deaf” over his decision to book Greg Hardy and Rachael Ostovich on the same UFC fight card … saying, “I could give a sh*t.”

… and it didn’t stop there. 

First, some backstory … 

Both Hardy and Ostovich are fighting at the big UFC on ESPN event on Saturday night — which drew heavy criticism from ESPN’s main MMA reporter, Ariel Helwani, who sounded off Wednesday. 

“I found this decision to be incredibly tone-deaf, to put it mildly,” Helwani said on ESPN.

FYI, Hardy was found guilty of domestic violence by a judge in 2014 — but the conviction was thrown out in 2015 when he appealed to have the case go in front of a jury … and his accuser stopped cooperating with prosecutors.

Ostovich suffered serious injuries in an alleged domestic violence incident back in November. She claims her husband (who’s also an MMA fighter) snapped and beat her ruthlessly.

Helwani and others have expressed concern over having them fight on the same card — so, when we saw White in NYC on Thursday morning, we asked for his thoughts. 

“I don’t give a sh*t what Ariel Helwani thinks,” White said … “Who the f*ck is Ariel Helwani to question anything that we do.”

“I think we’ve done a pretty good job in 20 years. I could give a sh*t what he thinks, or anybody else for that matter.”

So, why are they on the same card? White says they’re both on the UFC roster and it was bound to happen at some point.

White has previously said he spoke with Ostovich about booking Hardy on the card and claimed she was cool with it. 

Clemson Tigers Celebrate Title W/ Fast Food Buffet … at White House

LIVE STREAM

It’s burger time for the national champs!! 

Dabo Swinney and the Clemson gang are at 1600 Penn to celebrate their win over Alabama in the national championship … and we’ll be streaming the whole thing.

It’s the Tigers’ second trip to the White House in 3 years … but this time around, they’ll be served with the finest (and quickest) cuisine around!!

Donald Trump said earlier Monday he’s planning a smorgasbord of fast food for the champs … saying “I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King with some pizza.”

BTW — the buffet looks to be shaping up well … and they’ve even included some healthy salad options!

Sarah Sanders explained the move for fast food, saying, “much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed, so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods.”

Check back when the stream kicks off at 3:30 PM PT.

President Trump Clemson’s Coming To White House … And I Can’t Wait!!!

Breaking News

President Trump is congratulating the Clemson Tigers for winning the national championship … because he’s just announced that Dabo Swinney‘s football team will visit the White House next week, and it’s a big win for the Prez.

POTUS announced Friday he’s hosting the Tigers in our nation’s capital Monday, the second time in three years Clemson will visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Dabo’s squad also shook hands with Trump in June 2017 after winning it all.

Getting Clemson to the White House is huge for Trump. It’s no longer an automatic for major sports champions to visit the President. 

Remember, team visits to the White House became routine in the 1980s … until the NBA champion Golden State Warriors started a trend last summer by making clear they wouldn’t visit Trump.

The Philadelphia Eagles threatened to boycott the White House after winning last year’s Super Bowl, and they never showed.

The Villanova Wildcats didn’t visit the White House after winning last year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Ditto for the NHL’s Washington Capitals.

Like Clemson, the World Series champion Boston Red Sox accepted Trump’s invitation, and pitcher Heath Hembree famously told us he f*cks with Trump. The Sox will visit sometime during the upcoming MLB season.

We’re guessing Clemson’s visit will keep Sen. Lindsey Graham in a great mood

Snow White Busted By Cops … For Aggressive Panhandling

EXCLUSIVE

Snow White isn’t heading for a fairy tale ending this time around  … because a woman dressed as the famous Disney character got shoved in the back of a police cruiser after cops say she was way too belligerent begging for money.

Someone shot this video of Snow White getting busted for aggressive panhandling Thursday afternoon on Hollywood Blvd., and the photog clearly thinks the LAPD is playing the role of the witch.

It’s kinda funny … there’s a Batman character standing idly by as cops handle the situation. Guess the Dark Knight has a soft spot for Disney princesses.

We’ve seen panhandlers get aggressive on Hollywood Blvd. before … back in 2011, a man dressed as SpongeBob SquarePants started squaring up with 2 women!!!

No word on if Snow White is getting bailed out by the Seven Dwarfs.

Dana White Conor And Khabib … Rematch Should Happen In 2019

EXCLUSIVE

The Conor McGregorKhabib rematch WILL go down in 2019 — so says Dana White … who tells TMZ Sports it’ll happen as long as everything goes according to plan.

The UFC honcho popped by the TMZ offices last week … and told us there are still some hurdles to clear — but he thinks Khabib-Conor II will get set sometime in the next 12 months.

“As long as everything goes right, this fight should happen.”

Of course, Khabib and Conor are still facing suspensions for their roles in the brawl that broke out at UFC 229 … and guys like Tony Ferguson and even Max Holloway could get shots at Khabib before Conor does.

But, Dana says if everything lines up the way he thinks it will … the rematch will happen.

Khabib dominated Conor at UFC 229 on Oct 6 — forcing the Irishman to tap out in the 4th round. 

After the fight, Conor gave a round-by-round breakdown explaining why he lost the fight — but gave credit to Khabib and vowed to return “with my confidence high.”

“If it is not the rematch right away, no problem,” Conor said back in October … “I will face the next in line. It’s all me always, anyway. See you soon, my fighting fans, I love you all.”

Dana White Moving UFC 232 To L.A. Cost $6 Million!

Breaking News

Dana White says the decision to move UFC 232 from Las Vegas to Los Angeles cost roughly $ 6 million. 

White says he did NOT want to cancel the fight and worked to find a venue where it could happen when problems arose in Nevada. 

White says once they found out The Forum in L.A. was available, they booked it and the rest is history. 

Alexander Gustafsson just went off on Jon Jones to his face — saying the guy is a “terrible” cheater who’s spewing “bullsh*t” about his positive PED test. 

The two exchanged shots at the UFC 232 press conference — Gustafsson says he’s convinced Jones is a cheater, but didn’t want to back out of the Dec. 29 fight because he wants to beat the guy’s ass. 

“I’m here to fight,” Gustafsson said … “He will eat it Saturday night.”

UFC 232 was supposed to go down in Las Vegas — but was moved to L.A. after Jones tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid.

Jones has insisted he only had trace amounts of the PED in his system — remnants of the last time he tested positive. He’s adamant the Turinabol in his system is not new.

The UFC — along with the California State Athletic Commission and other officials — believe Jones, which is why the fight was greenlit in CA.

During the event, Jones doubled down on his claim that he’s not a cheater and will eventually be vindicated by tested organizations. 

Jones says it’s “hilarious” that people think PEDs are the reason for his success. 

Christie Brinkley White Sand Christmas … With My Beautiful Daughter!!!

Christie Brinkley and Sailor Brinkley Cook traded in snow and scarves for beaches and bikinis this Christmas, and we’re glad they did … because the swimsuit models’ vacation pics are the gift that keeps giving!

Christie still slays in a sexy blue swimsuit even at 64, and Sailor definitely got it from her momma … click through the gallery for Sailor’s picture-perfect beach poses in barely-there bikinis. Yeah, we’re glad the photo-friendly pair spent this Christmas in a tropical location!

Christie and Sailor proved they’re more than just pretty people … hopping on paddle boards, jumping in kayaks and cruising around on the open water. Beauty and brawn! 

Oh, and wait until you see what Christie wore when they were opening presents … safe to say Santa would love to have her as one of his little helpers. 

Logan Paul Hey, Dana White ‘Get Your Head Out Your Ass and Sign Me!!!’

EXCLUSIVE

Logan Paul says Dana White needs to “get his head out of his ass” and sign him to a UFC fight already — because it’s easy money for everyone involved. 

Remember, Paul fought YouTube star KSI in a boxing match earlier this year — and got real praise from real UFC stars including Tyron Woodley and UFC color commentator Joe Rogan

Paul had said he wants a UFC fight next, but White shot him down saying he’d get hurt if he got in the Octagon with a real MMA fighter. 

But, Paul says that’s a bunch of crap — telling TMZ Sports he’s already proven he can hold his own in a fight … and would dedicate himself to training if the two sides worked out a deal. 

“If I get the chance to fight in the UFC, that’s my life,” Paul says. 

“Dana, what’s good? The people want it man!”

Of course, Paul’s opponent would be a huge factor — Logan says he understands he’s not ready for a shot with a killer like Khabib … but he WOULD be down to fight Conor McGregor

“I would be honored for Conor to rip my head off.”

Stay tuned …
