Machine Gun Kelly confronted by UFC fighter Sean Strickland


Friday was quite the day for former UFC champion Sean Strickland.

Just hours after he bloodied streamer Sneako and sent quasi-death threats to Jake Paul on X, Strickland engaged in another altercation – this time in-person with music star Machine Gun Kelly.

Strickland and MGK crossed paths as spectators at a star-studded Power Slap event at Durango Casino & Resort in Las Vegas. A portion of the interaction was caught on video by Inside Fighting. The altercation did not get physical.

While it’s unclear what started the altercation, Strickland can be heard calling MGK “weird” and insulting his attire. As he walked away, Strickland turned back and said, “I’m easy to find, vampire man.”

Before video of the incident surfaced on social media, Strickland announced on X that something had happened between him and MGK.

“I almost hit a vampire tonight… lol!” Strickland wrote. “They said his name is machine gun kelly.. How do you have a dope ass name and dress like a 13 goth south park character?!?”

Following the conclusion of the Power Slap event in Las Vegas, UFC CEO Dana White was asked about the altercation at a news conference.

“You can’t bring Sean Strickland around any other human beings,” White said after a lengthy (and laughter-inducing) pause. “You know what I mean? It has nothing to do with Machine Gun Kelly. It’s about humans.”

The initial X post was the first of many, as Strickland went on to tag MGK’s fiancé Megan Fox in a follow-up tweet. The movie “Transformers” then caught a stray from the former champion.

MGK has yet to comment publicly on the spat.
