The ever-entertaining UFC champion Conor McGregor is back at it again, stirring up some drama on social media with none other than American rapper Machine Gun Kelly. This feud is as real as McGregor's punches in the Octagon, and it has just been reignited.

Remember when these two first crossed paths back in 2021? You probably do—it was all over the news. They had a heated face-off during the MTV Video Music Awards, and boy, was it a sight to behold! But the reason behind their fiery altercation? That still remains a mystery as neither McGregor nor MGK (as fans affectionately call him) have spilled the beans on what exactly went down. Fast forward to the present day and the Irish fighting champ has taken a jab at MGK on Twitter. He posted a mocking comment under a video of the rapper skateboarding, saying "watch out guys we got a bada** over here" accompanied by a string of crying laughing emojis. But before we could even grab our popcorn, the tweet was deleted. Talk about a cliffhanger!

But don't think for a second that MGK is the only one on McGregor's radar. The fighter also recently had some choice words for his former teammate Artem Lobov and YouTuber True Geordie. McGregor's social media game seems to be as strong as his fighting game! Now, let's rewind a bit to that infamous 2021 incident. It was reported that McGregor threw a drink at the rapper. When asked about the incident by Entertainment Tonight, McGregor played it cool, claiming he didn’t know MGK and that nothing really happened. He said, “Absolutely nothing happened. I don’t know. He showed up, and I don’t know. I don’t know the guy." He then 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 Ice Boy rappers."

So, there you have it—the mystery continues. What exactly sparked this ongoing feud between the UFC star and the rapper? We may never know. But one thing's for sure, McGregor's social media antics continue to keep us entertained. And hey, who doesn't love a good celebrity feud to keep things interesting? So stay tuned, because this story is far from over.
