Conor McGregor Plea Deal that Avoids Jail, Deportation

7/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor is one lucky scofflaw ... because TMZ Sports has learned he's on the verge of striking a deal in his New York City criminal case that will keep him in the U.S. and out of jail.

We've learned Conor's lawyer is in the final stages of negotiating a plea deal in his felony mischief case ... the case that was filed after the UFC champ unleashed his fury by hurling a dolly into a UFC bus, injuring 3 fighters. His target was UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was not hurt.

Conor was charged with one count of felony criminal mischief and 3 counts of misdemeanor assault.

Sources familiar with the deal tell us, prosecutors have agreed to reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. That's hugely significant because a felony involving violence could trigger permanent deportation from the U.S.

The Irish bad boy faced 7 years behind bars if convicted, but we've learned prosecutors are agreeable to probation ... NO jail time.

The deal is not finalized, but we're told negotiations are down to the "fine points." If it doesn't fall apart, the deal should be finalized in a matter of days, because Conor is due in a Manhattan court Thursday.

If the deal is finalized, it gives UFC Prez Dana White the wiggle room to avoid banning Conor from the UFC ... something he's done with other fighters

7/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Palin's proud as heck of her daughter, Bristol, joining the cast of "Teen Mom OG" ... and doesn't rule out making an appearance or 2 herself.

We got the former Vice Presidential candidate at LAX Friday and asked about her family getting back into the reality TV biz. She tells us her daughter's going to be perfect for the show, because she has a great message ... and a good forum to tell her story now.

Palin makes it pretty clear she's not the biggest 'Teem Mom' fan, but that doesn't mean she's against being part of the show ... if Bristol needs her. And, unlike Farrah Abraham, she doesn't seem too concerned about any political bias.

The new season with Bristol fires up on MTV this fall ... so Sarah's still got some time to catch up on the storylines.

EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone fans might get what they asked for because the rapper's "Queer Eye" cameo might actually happen, and Post's already got a new look in mind.

We got Posty outside Chin Chin in WeHo and he admitted he was in need of a shower because he's smack in the middle of "a rock star binger."

If ya missed it ... the rapper's fans made a call to action over Twitter, which lead Fab Fiver Karamo Brown to tweet: "Lol why does everyone want @PostMalone to be on the show. Did he request it?" To which Post replied: "no they just think I'm ugly and smell lol."

Post says he's a die-hard fan of the Emmy-nominated reality show, and he'd let them chop his hair too.

Sources close to Post tell us his team is already in talks with "Queer Eye" to make it happen. He says he's already got a look in mind for his makeover ... and it's "groovy, baby!"

EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Garoppolo's new porn-star-loving image may not be so bad for business after all -- he's already getting new endorsement offers ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

No, they're not coming from church groups or family friendly companies -- we're talking weed and porn. 

After the 49ers star was seen out with Kiara Mia -- the marijuana-themed porn site XBlaze.com fired an offer letter to Jimmy hoping to sign him as a spokesperson. 

"We want to offer you the opportunity to be a spokesperson for our company, as both an advocate of marijuana and cannabinoids as well as the adult entertainment industry."

It's a long shot Jimmy actually comes to a deal with the site ... but who'da thunk Jimmy would go public with a porn star in the first place?

7/20/2018 6:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sylvester Stallone's birthday celebration rolled into Bev Hills Friday, and we got him to weigh in on who's the real NBA G.O.A.T. ... when it comes to securing a reso around town.

Sly was leaving Nazareth's Fine Cigars smoke lounge when we asked him who he thought restaurants would rather seat at their last available table -- Kobe Bryant or LeBron James? Tough one, right? One's the established L.A. legend, and the other's the new kid on the block ... but also an NBA legend.

Rocky didn't duck the question, and sorry, Kobe -- he went with LBJ! Although, he offered a diplomatic explanation for his pick.

Sly turned 72 earlier this month, but we kept the party going with a belated gift.
