Conor McGregor apparently took a jibe against Machine Gun Kelly after their recent altercation. McGregor used a video of MGK’s girlfriend – longtime MMA fan and Hollywood actress Megan Fox – implying that he (McGregor) is her favorite fighter.
A Twitter account by the name of UFC Stats tweeted a video featuring Megan Fox from a past UFC event. The video has Conor McGregor‘s iconic entrance music in the background, while Fox appears to be clapping among the other fans in the arena.
The caption from the original UFC Stats tweet tagged Conor McGregor’s Twitter account and reads:
“your daughter’s favorite fighter (@TheNotoriousMMA).”
Conor McGregor has now retweeted the aforementioned tweet, presumably as a jibe to Megan Fox’s boyfriend, rapper turned rocker Machine Gun Kelly aka MGK.
Conor McGregor was at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 12, 2021. At the event’s red carpet ceremony, he got into a brawl with Machine Gun Kelly and MGK security staff. The exact reason for the fight is still unknown.
Nonetheless, as some videos and reports regarding the incident evidenced, McGregor was allegedly pushed around by MGK security personnel. Not to be outdone, ‘Notorious’ lashed out at them, and even threw a drink in the general management of MGK.
Megan Fox and MGK attended Conor McGregor’s UFC fights
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Megan Fox revealed that she was present during the infamous UFC 229 brawl between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018. Fox said:
“I was in the Conor-Khabib fight a few years ago when all this chaos happened. Everyone had to love, run. It was necessary to love, to escape. They started to jump the ring. I see the girls in the ring running in their dresses. And I’m like “I’d better run too if the girls in the ring are running.” Every time it’s Conor, it’s always crazy.
Megan Fox has participated in several UFC events in the past. Fox and MGK recently attended the Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor UFC 264 event in July 2021. MGK, from Cleveland, Ohio, is often seen supporting his fellow Cleveland native – the former heavyweight champion of UFC Stipe Miocic – at UFC events.
Meanwhile, Conor McGregor is working hard to recover from his leg injury. He is expected to return to MMA competition in 2022.
