Conor McGregor and Machine Gun Kelly both spoken to by UFC chief Dana White about their explosive MTV VMAs bust-up

DANA WHITE has called for calm following the bust-up between Conor McGregor and Machine Gun Kelly.

The UFC boss revealed he has spoken to both parties after The Notorious and MGK scuffled at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.


MMA icon McGregor and American rapper MGK almost came to blows at the glitzy awards ceremony after McGregor allegedly hurled a bottle when the singer refused to pose for a selfie.

The pair are understood to have made amends following the incident, with McGregor inviting MGK and girlfriend Megan Fox to his next fight.

And speaking to reporters at UFC headquarters, White insisted this was all part and parcel of life in the fight game.

He said: “I talked to both actually. They’re all good now. (It was) a misunderstanding, or whatever it was.”

“This is the fight business. I’ve got 700 lunatics under contract here.

“What do you guys think – these are the things that happen sometimes. This isn’t Microsoft. We’re in a crazy f***ing business here.”

McGregor and MGK are both massive stars in their respective fields.

The Irishman is a three-time UFC champion across featherweight and lightweight divisions.

MGK is a chart-topping artist, with his last album ‘Tickets to My Downfall’ reaching No1 in the US and No3 in the UK.

McGregor is no stranger to causing havoc outside the Octagon, perhaps most famously attacking rival Khabib Nurmagomedov’s team bus ahead of their momentous 2018 clash.

But White insisted there was no issue and that he had things under control.

He added: “I think we all know Conor’s personality, and we’ve got some guys that were like that.

“These guys are fighters, and this is the fight business. Crazy s*** happens in the fight business.”

“There’s all the s*** that you guys know about because it happens in public, nevermind the s*** you don’t know about that happens every day.”
