Conor McGregor Brings Megan Fox Into Beef With Machine Gun Kelly With Sly Dig
| Last updated
It seems as if Conor McGregor has brought Megan Fox into his supposed beef with rapper Machine Gun Kelly by retweeting a video as a sly dig.
McGregor and MGK - whose real name is Colson Baker - had a bit of a heated moment on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards over the weekend, with video footage showing security stepping in to intervene.
Various rumours have since circulated about why the scuffle broke out, and why the UFC fighter decided to throw his drink over Kelly and his partner Fox - including an idea from Jake Paul, who believes McGregor mistook the musician for him.
"We look the same, like blonde hair, little bit tall," Paul told ESPN.
Whatever it was, McGregor clearly isn't done stirring the pot as earlier this week, he retweeted an old video of Fox dancing away as he made the walk into the octagon for a fight.
The clip, posted earlier this week by @TheUFCStats, was captioned: "Your girl's favourite fighter."

McGregor had been at the VMAs to present an award, while Baker had been nominated for the Alternative Video award, which he also went on to win.
Speaking to Adam's Apple yesterday (14 September), McGregor spoke a little bit about the incident with Baker.
"I'll tell you what happened," he said.
"I'll tell you what it is. I'm free here in New York City, you know what I mean?
"I'm back in New York. I got to go to the Barclays Center and I got to present an award.
"I was just going to have a good time, you know what I mean? That's it, all love, it's all good."
He said that, while he may know Fox, he wasn't aware of her rapper partner.
McGregor - who is currently walking with a cane as he recovers from a leg break he suffered in his fight with Poirier earlier this year - said he also invited them to his comeback bout in 2022, claiming he has 'no problem' with them attending.
"Come to the next fight," he said.
"Come watch me perform any time. I'll perform, no problem.
"Everyone is more than welcome to come to my fights, to the shows.
"There's no beef. I don't even know the guy. I don't even know him. Who is he? You're telling me he's been at the fights.
"Megan has been at the fights for years. I know Megan. I don't know the guy. There's no problem. Come to the fights. There's no problem."
