Footage shows McGregor throwing a drink in the direction of Kelly and his girlfriend, actor Megan Fox, as several people move to hold the MMA fighter back.
A source told People that McGregor took a swing at MGK after the rapper’s team reportedly turned down the fighter’s request for a photo.

While backstage at the show, Conor was asked by Entertainment Tonight to explain the scuffle and he insisted that “absolutely nothing” happened between them.
“Absolutely nothing. I don’t know. He showed up, and I don’t know. I don’t know the guy,” he told ET’s Rachel Smith. “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.”
