“Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean,” McGregor told Entertainment Tonight after the incident. “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.”

CNN has contacted a representative for Kelly for comment.
