Former two-division UFC champions and the biggest UFC superstar Conor McGregor revealed what exactly happened during his face-to-face clash with Machine Gun Kelly at MTV awards. During the recent MTV Video Music Awards, UFC’s biggest superstar Conor McGregor had a small altercation with the celebrity rapper Machine Gun Kelly. According to TMZ, Both McGregor and MGK came face to face at the event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Conor then went on to ask MGK for a picture which he denied and then he went on to push McGregor which instigated the brawl. McGregor then threw a drink at MGK and Megan fox and he also went on to swing some shots at them, Before security jumped in to stop both the parties.
The reports have no authenticity as there’s no proper video evidence of what exactly happened. The reports also seem baseless, because Mcgregor is himself a huge superstar, and him to go and ask for a picture with MGK didn’t make sense for many MMA fans.

Talking to the ET at the event “Absolutely nothing (happened),” McGregor said. “I don’t know. I just showed up and I don’t know. I don’t even know the guy to be honest with you. Just rumors. Nothing happened with me. I only fight real fighters. People that actually fight. I certainly don’t fight little Vanilla Ice white rappers. I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox.”
