On Sunday, the rapper and the MMA fighter were caught having an altercation at the VMAs.

The two were captured in a scuffle after Conor was seen yelling at MGK and his girlfriend, Megan Fox.

It's said that the brawl started when Conor asked for a photo with MGK, who turned him down. Other eyewitnesses caught the boxer throwing a drink towards the rapper and the model.

Conor then reportedly threw his cane at the artist, leading to the two men coming face-to-face before security pulled them apart.

Yikes!

The shocking, albeit brief, interaction caused quite a stir on the internet.

Especially since no one knows what really went down between the two. Some think the whole thing could have even been staged.

Later that evening, Conor did an interview with Entertainment Tonight where he slammed MGK and claimed "nothing happened" between the two.

"Absolutely nothing. I don't know. He showed up, and I don't know. I don't know the guy," the 33-year-old revealed.

He added,"Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean. 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."

As for the Bloody Valentine artist, he hasn't offered much input on the situation and obviously enjoyed his night with Megan.

Could be this a future celebrity boxing match?
