Conor McGregor almost got into a fight outside of the Octagon after he and Machine Gun Kelly had to be separated from each other at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night. Pictures showed McGregor being held back from MGK’s camp and another video on social media showed the former UFC champion throwing water at the “Bloody Valentine” singer.
McGregor brushed off the incident in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“Absolutely nothing. I don’t know. He showed up, and I don’t know. I don’t know the guy,” he said.
“Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean. I certainly don’t fight little vanilla boy rappers. I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox,” McGregor added.
People reported McGregor asked to take a photo with MGK but the artist’s team denied the request.
McGregor is two months removed from suffering a gruesome leg injury during his fight with Dustin Poirier.
