Conor McGregor has stoked his rivalry with Machine Gun Kelly by liking a video of the rapper's girlfriend Megan Fox cheering him on for one of the UFC star's fights.
McGregor and Kelly - real name Colson Baker - had to be separated on the red carpet after a physical altercation at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.
A clip online shows the Irishman launching his drink in the direction of Kelly and Fox.

McGregor himself addressed the situation with 'MGK', claiming he doesn't know who he is - but is aware of Fox.
"Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters. People that actually fight," he said.
"I certainly don't fight little Vanilla Ice white rappers. I don't even know the guy.
"I don't know anything about him, except that he's with Megan Fox."
Well, McGregor has ramped up his budding feud with Kelly by liking a video Fox cheering him on during his walk out.
The video's titled: "Your girl's favorite fighter," which the former UFC champion has liked on Twitter.
While McGregor has subtlety taunted Kelly, he was on the wrong end of a brutal post by Jorge Masvidal.
'Gamebred' mocked the 'Notorious' as he told Triller to set up a fight between them following their scuffle, and said he's backing Kelly.
He tweeted: "Yo @triller set this up. In a five rounder I got my money on @machinegunkelly #supernecessary."
Triller have put on some bizarre match-ups, but don't expect them to make McGregor vs. Kelly.
