“Absolutely nothing,” he told ET about what happened that night at the VMAs. “I don’t know. He showed up, and I don’t know. I don’t know the guy.”
He continued: “Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean. I certainly don’t fight little vanilla boy rappers. I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox.”

McGregor was seen yelling at MGK, who was walking the red carpet with his girlfriend, Megan Fox. The fighter had to be held back after he asked if he could take a picture with Megan, but her team turned him down.
“Conor went in on it a little bit,” a source told People. McGregor then reportedly dropped his cane, picked it up again before he began “swinging it in Kelly’s direction.”
