UFC star Conor McGregor is currently recovering from a severe leg injury which didn’t stop him to make some noise at the MTV ceremony.
A music awards ceremony was held last night, directed by MTV. The event was held in New York and was attended by many celebrities from various fields of activity. Thus, one of the biggest stars of the UFC, Conor McGregor, was among the guests. The Irishman is known for numerous excesses during his career, and it was not much different this time either.
Namely, numerous recordings and photographs have appeared showing the conflict between Conor McGregor and the globally famous rapper Machine Gun Kelly (real name: Colson Baker). Insurance had to separate the two actors, and they are also the most deserving that the whole situation has not escalated even more.

According to a TMZ report, the conflict reportedly occurred after McGregor asked Kelly to be photographed together. The rapper denied his request and there was an escalation. Kelly reportedly pushed Conor away from recovering from a severe leg fracture he suffered in July against Dustin Poirier. McGregor stumbled after being pushed away and spilled the drink all over himself. Shortly afterward, the Notorious threw his drink at Kelly, where security had to step up its intervention and further distance Kelly and McGregor.

By the way, the injured McGregor appeared at the ceremony with a crutch that makes it easier for him to move during his recovery from the injury. He definitely doesn’t need a physical conflict at this stage of recovery, and Conor would risk worsening the injury and further prolonging his recovery. McGregor was in the company of his longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin, while MGK came to the ceremony accompanied by Megan Fox. Both actors of this conflict were seen in the audience after the show began.
One of Conor’s spokespersons spoke for the MMA Fighting portal, saying:
” Conor McGregor didn’t ask anyone to be photographed and this incident didn’t start. He doesn’t know Machine Gun Kelly except for the fact that he was a guest at his fight in July. ”
The Irish MMA fighter later also referred to the incident in an interview for Entertainment Tonight. Conor calmed the tensions or rather did not want to go into too much detail about what had happened.
” Nothing has happened to me, I’m just fighting against real fighters, against people who are really fighting. I’m certainly not going to fight the little Vanilla Ice white rappers. I don’t even know that guy. I don’t know anything about him except that he is with Megan Fox, ” the Irishman added.
