UFC President Dana White is calling out convicted woman beater Floyd Mayweather.
In a just-released videotaped diatribe, White refers to the champion boxer as “racist” due to comments Mayweather made about star point guard Jeremy Lin, claiming the Knicks sensation was only receiving press because he’s Asian.
“Don’t worry about what all these other guys are doing and shooting your big mouth off on Twitter,” White says below. “What you should worry about is getting in there and making the fight that all the boxing fans want to see. Get in there and fight Manny Pacquiao.”

Heavy D died last week, shocking and saddening fans and the hip hop community. The 44-year-old’s autopsy results, unfortunately, don’t offer many answers.
The L.A. coroner’s office said Monday it could take several weeks to determine a cause of death because the autopsy was inconclusive, the L.A. Times reports.
Ed Winter, the coroner’s spokesman, said no illegal drugs found at Heavy D’s Beverly Hills home. A doctor prescribed him a drug after he experienced a cough.

Heavy D, one of hip hop’s best known artists of the 1990s, died today at a Los Angeles hospital. He was 44.
The rapper – whose real name was Dwight Arrington Myers and who was responsible for such hits as “Now That We Found Love” – was pronounced dead at approximately 1 p.m., 90 minutes after a call to 911 was placed from his home.
Paramedics reportedly found Heavy D conscious and speaking, prior to transporting him to a hospital. Police are now investigating the cause of death, although initial reports do not include any signs of foul play.

Boxing great Joe Frazier died Monday after a battle with liver cancer. He was 67.
The fighter will forever be associated with Muhammad Ali, who he defeated for the first time in the legend’s career (taking him down in March 1971), and who fought him two additional times in what became a storied rivalry.
For better or worse, Joe Frazier is forever linked to his biggest rival.
Joe Frazier (right) takes it to Muhammad Ali.
“That was the greatest thing that ever happened in my life,” Frazier said of beating Ali, but that biggest night was one that would never come again.

Nadya Suleman is no stranger to financial hardship. Heck, it’s so well known that Vivid has a boilerplate sex tape offer on file and ready to send out.
We didn’t even consider education, though.
Private school, no less! ALL 14 of her offspring are, according to reports, enrolled in an expensive private school. The octuplets? Not even three years old.
“She was bragging about having all of her kids in private school, even though the eight youngest are only two-and-a-half years old!” a source said.
“She can’t even pay the mortgage, but she doesn’t seem to care.”

Mother of 14 and non-sexual being Nadya Suleman threw down in a celebrity boxing match in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., over the weekend, winning the tournament.
Afterward, she showed off her battle scars. Scars from childbirth, that is, not from the boxing itself. Whether or not Octomom was drugged when those eight embryos were implanted inside her, the kids packed a wallop on the way out.

Sugar Ray Leonard is known for his toughness, inside and outside of the boxing ring. But on Wednesday, that all went away as the boxer got visibly emotional on the CBS talk show The Talk.
In June, Leonard shocked everyone with explosive allegations in his new memoir, The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring, that he was sexually abused by two of his Olympic trainers during the 1970s. He refused to name them but admitted that both are now deceased.
“I didn’t tell anyone. I’m a dude, I’m a fighter; I could’ve kicked their ass. But I suppressed things… I carried this thing with me untilMore >
Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael Lohan was rushed to a Newport Beach, Calif., hospital after experiencing chest pains late yesterday, according to reports.
MiLo was actually at a doctor’s office for a consultation about getting his nose fixed (he’s broken it several times over the years, likely due to his boxing).
Michael began complaining of chest pains, so the nurse took his blood pressure which alarmed her enough to call 911. His blood pressure was 200/110.
Hopefully Mike will be giving the thumbs-up again soon.
Apparently he got lucky. Reports say Michael, who’s had chest pains before,More >
Marisa Miller is quite fond of her derriere. THG can tolerate it as well.
In the February issue of Shape, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model reveals that it wasn’t always easy. She was given the nickname “bubble butt” in high school.
“We refused to do squats at volleyball practice because we didn’t want them to get bigger,” she tells the mag, which she’s graced the cover of eight times.
Now? “I love my butt and want to make sure it stays where it is,” she says. “Now all we want to do is lots of squats to keep our rear ends curvy and feeling strong.”
