Conor McGregor appears to be seeking a fight – inside or outside of the octagon.
According to multiple reports, the UFC star had to be restrained on the red carpet at the VMAs on Sunday evening. McGregor reportedly was going at it with Machine Gun Kelly.
Page Six had more:
Conor McGregor and Machine Gun Kelly had to be separated after getting into an altercation on the VMAs red carpet at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sunday night, Page Six has learned.
A spy told Page Six they “got into a fight at the top of the carpet” and “had to be pulled apart.”
Photos show the UFC champ, 33, and “Bloody Valentine” singer, 31, being pulled apart by what looks like security after the scuffle broke out.
With red carpet stunts – especially ones involving professional fighters – you always have to wonder about the possibility of them being staged.
However, this one looked pretty real.

Page Six reported that McGregor allegedly threw a drink at Kelly, leading to the altercation. It’s unclear what allegedly sparked the initial interaction.
Celebrity boxing has become a pretty big thing as of late, though. Perhaps this is all a setup for a future Conor McGregor vs. Machine Gun Kelly bout!
