After a Scuffle, Conor McGregor Says he’s Fine With Machine Gun Kelly and Says, ‘Come Watch me Perform any Time’

Following a confrontation on Sunday’s red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, N.Y., Conor McGregor continues to deny any animosity against music sensation Machine Gun Kelly.

McGregor, who had first remained silent on the subject, elaborated on his sentiments outside his New York hotel on Monday. While the cause of the confrontation is still unknown, McGregor stated that he has no ill feelings toward the rapper-turned-rocker at this time.

“I’ll tell you what happened,” McGregor told Adam’s Apple. “I’ll tell you what it is. I’m free here in New York City, you know what I mean? I’m back in New York. I got to go to the Barclays Center. I got to present an award. I was just going to have a good time, you know what I mean? That’s it. All love. It’s all good. Come to the next fight. Come watch me perform any time. I’ll perform, no problem. Everyone is more than welcome to come to my fights, to the shows.”

McGregor reiterated he had no prior relationship with MGK, though he was familiar with the musician’s significant other, actress and model Megan Fox. Both MGK and Fox frequently attend UFC events, including McGregor’s loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July.

“(There’s) no beef,” McGregor said. “I don’t even know the guy. I don’t even know him. Who is he? You’re telling me he’s been at the fights. Megan has been at the fights (for) years. Megan has been at the fights (for) years. I know Megan. I don’t know the guy. There’s no problem. Come to the fights. There’s no problem.”

McGregor is currently rehabbing from surgery to repair a broken leg suffered in the trilogy fight vs. Poirier. He is back on his feet, though he used a cane to move around during his VMA presentation Sunday. There is no clear timeline for his return.

As for MGK, the 31-year-old won “Best Alternative Video” at the 2021 VMAs – which marked the second straight year he took home the award. Kelly’s debut rock album, “Tickets to My Downfall”, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in October 2020. He, along with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, are expected to drop their second album, “Born with Horns” in 2021.
