Conor McGregor must have left any ill will on the VMAs red carpet.
Just one day after he was getting into a fight with Machine Gun Kelly at the 2021 VMAs, McGregor was spotted out to dinner at Amaranth in New York City on Monday with fiancé Dee Devlin and some friends. The Irish MMA fighter seemed to be more into his longtime love than his meal — or his friends — as he couldn’t keep his hands off Devlin.
The pair, who have three children, were photographed kissing and laughing at the table in between bites, and McGregor looked far more relaxed than he did on the red carpet with Kelly, with whom he brawled for unclear reasons.
“They scuffled, then it settled down and Conor went for him again,” a source told Page Six at the time, adding that the photographers “weren’t happy” and were “saying they were going to boycott Conor because they were worried MGK and Megan wouldn’t walk.”
“[McGregor] was ready to throw fists,” a second source said, adding, “Security was having trouble holding him back.”
Despite the well-documented kerfuffle, a rep for McGregor quipped, “Conor only fights fighters.”
Following 33-year-old McGregor and Kelly’s physical spat, the professional fighter dissed the “Bloody Valentine” rocker in an interview.
“Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean,” McGregor said. “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.”
Kelly, 31, didn’t care to elaborate on the near fisticuffs, instead choosing to slap a reporter’s microphone when asked about it.
