CONOR McGREGOR has been warned he is ‘dangerously close to being a little rich weirdo’ after his row with Machine Gun Kelly.
The UFC superstar hit the headlines for all the wrong reason after footage emerged of him rowing with rapper Machine Gun Kelly.
McGregor even threw a drink over the American artist, who was accompanied with his partner Megan Fox at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
Former UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen voiced his concern for the Irishman after he attended the event alongside ‘elitist weirdos’.
Sonnen, 44, said on his YouTube channel: “I don’t want him to be a little rich weird guy. I don’t want that for him.
“He’s getting and hedging dangerously close to being a little rich weirdo.
“The fact that he was there is not great, especially if you’re someone like me that comes out and tries to perpetuate that Conor’s cool.
“That’s tough man. What are you doing at MTV? If you’re ever at a show where Machine Gun Kelly is about to be recognised for doing a good job.

“You’re at a weird showman. You got dressed up, you put on a special outfit, you rented a car to drop you off with these elitist weirdos?
“It’s weird, it’s very, very bizarre that he was there.”
McGregor, 33, is currently cursing a broken tibia his suffered in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier, 32, in July.
It resulted in a loss, and saw him undergo surgery which is now completed ahead of his return next year.
McGregor, who beat Poirier in 2014 but was knocked out in their rematch in January, is already training again.
He’s getting and hedging dangerously close to being a little rich weirdo.

And Sonnen again slammed that it was ‘off-brand’ that the former two-weight UFC champion attended MTV’s red carpet event.
He said: “He goes out to something known as the MTV or VMA awards, which right there hard stop that’s weird.
“That’s not cool. That’s what dorks would do, then hope that more nerds at home would watch it.
“Conor being there, very off-brand. The whole thing is very slimy. Then he gets in some dust-up with some knucklehead named Machine Gun Kelly.
“This is also interesting because the only footage we have is of Conor being upset and trying to get to or at somebody.”
