Conor McGregor has opened up about his altercation with American musician Machine Gun Kelly. Asked about his altercation with MGK which took place at the MTV Video Music Awards, McGregor suggested there was “no beef” between them.
The Irishman was reportedly pushed around by MGK security staff during the MTV VMA red carpet ceremony. He responded by ringing the bell and throwing Kelly a drink.
On that note, Adam’s Apple’s Adam Glyn met Conor McGregor outside his New York hotel and asked the UFC star about the incident. McGregor responded by stating:
“I’ll tell you what happened. I’ll tell you what it is. I’m free here in New York, you know what I mean? I am back in New York. I have to go to the Barclays Center. I have to give a prize. I’m just gonna have a good time, you know what I mean? And that’s all. All love… It’s all right, man. Come to the next fight. Come watch me play anytime. I will play; no problem. Everyone is more than welcome to come to my fights, to the shows.
“No beef. I don’t even know the guy. I do not know him. Who is he? Telling me that he was in the fighting. Megan (Fox) has been in combat for years. Megan has been in combat for years. I know Megan. I don’t know the guy. There is no problem. Come to the fights. No problem, man.
