“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,” said McGregor.

Conor who suffered an injury during his last UFC fight against Dustin Poirier in July appeared to have thrown away his walking aid during the altercation.

Kelly later wowed the audience during the ceremony when he performed with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker.
