Conor McGregor has been out of the spotlight since he broke his tibia at UFC 264 in July. He returned to public life at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night and promptly got into an altercation with musician Colson Baker, a.k.a., Machine Gun Kelly. While MGK was there walking the red carpet with Megan Fox, McGregor was there with his wife.

According to TMZ, McGregor asked MGK for a picture and was denied. Things escallated from there and the former UFC champion had to be literally held back on the red carpet after spilling his drink. Images of McGregor reacting to this are incredibly funny.
