“They got into a fight and then it calmed down and Conor came back to him,” a source told the Gossip page.
Another source told Page Six that the former UFC champion was “ready to throw the fists.” It is not known exactly what happened to cause the fight to break out.
People have reported that McGregor asked to take a photo with MGK, but the artist’s team turned down the request.
McGregor was at the VMAs in Brooklyn, NY at the Barclays Center with his girlfriend Dee Devlin. McGregor is two months away from a horrific leg injury during his fight with Dustin Poirier and since then he has launched several rants against Poirier and other UFC fighters.
He recently healed his injury, but it was always expected that he would run out of time before returning to the Octagon. He was seen with a cane on the red carpet.
