The former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor got into an ugly altercation with Hollywood rapper Machine Gun Kelly. The Notorious always finds ways to remain in the headlines, and this time around it was the Hollywood rapper Machine Gun Kelly who found himself in the middle of mayhem after McGregor threw bottles at him, instigating chaos at MTV music awards.
According to reports, it started with MGK denying a photograph to Conor McGregor at the MTV Music Awards. However, according to McGregor’s team, and the former dual champion himself, he doesn’t even know the Hollywood rapper.
“Absolutely nothing(when asked what happened with MGK on red carpet). I don’t know, I just showed up, I don’t even know the guy. I only fight real fighters, I don’t fight little vanilla ice white rappers. I don’t even know the guy except that he’s with Megan Fox.”
Conor McGregor was present at the MTV music awards with his fiancé Dee Devlin and the couple looked absolutely ravishing on the red carpet. Here’s the complete video of the entire scuffle. In the video, McGregor can be seen throwing a water bottle on Hollywood rapper Machine Gun Kelly as the security tried to hold the former lightweight and featherweight champion.
