It seems former Ultimate Fighting Championship two-division champ Conor McGregor has drawn attention to himself, once again, for the wrong reasons.

McGregor threw a drink at rapper Machine Gun Kelly and his significant other, actress Megan Fox, on the red carpet before the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. No arrests were made following the altercation.

No stranger to scrums at public events, “Notorious” was captured on video throwing a full cup at the hip hop artist and actress. Reports claim that an exchange of words between the two led to the outburst from the Irishman.

“I don’t even know the guy, to be honest with you,” McGregor told Entertainment Tonight when asked what happened. “I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight. I certainly don’t fight little Vanilla Ice rappers, I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox.”

Machine Gun Kelly was asked about the “little scuffle” by Entertainment Tonight but playfully slapped away the microphone and walked away from the cameras.

The UFC superstar was at the event to present the award for “Artist of the Year.” MGK was on hand to perform his song “Papercuts”
