It appears that Conor McGregor and Machine Gun Kelly got into a brawl on the VMAs red carpet.
The 33-year-old UFC star is seen running alongside the 31-year-old rapper and actor on the carpet at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center in New York City on Sunday night (September 12).
Photos show Connor being escorted away by security guards while MGK’s guards stop him from the UFC fighter.
Connor was joined on the red carpet by his wife, Dee Devlin.
Machine Gun Kelly walked the carpet this evening with girlfriend Megan Fox, who rocked it in a totally see-through outfit.
A source close to McGregor revealed that the UFC fighter had approached Kelly to shake his hand and was then pushed by Kelly’s security.
The source apparently added that McGregor “doesn’t understand what the issue was, and was surprised by how he was treated.”
“Conor McGregor did not ask anyone for a picture, nor did he instigate this incident,” McGregor’s spokesperson said in a statement to ESPN. “He does not know Machine Gun Kelly, outside of the fact that he attended Conor’s fight this past July.”
