The former UFC champion and Music Star were both in attendance for yesterday’s Power Slap event at Durango Casino & Resort. At some point during the evening, Sean Strickland and Machine Gun Kelly crossed paths which led to a verbal spat between the two men.

What spawned the confrontation remains unclear, but Strickland can clearly be heard calling Machine Gun Kelly “weird”, this while throwing shade at the musician’s attire. After being separated, ‘Tarzan’ turned around and said, “I’m easy to find, vampire man.”

While the altercation between Stickland and Kelly did not get physical, it clearly bothered Sean Strickland enough to throw out further insults at ‘MGK’ later that same evening on ‘X’:

You guys what the fuck is going on………. Transformers Megan Fox is with that thing….. what the actual fuck has happened to the world?! What did I miss? Is she OK? Is this man the devil? @meganfox are you ok? Do you need assistance?!”

“Man I just found out about Megan… Daa f*ck has happened since transformers?! I’m done… goodnight.. fuck… fuck…. I’m done…”

Following last night’s star-studded Power Slap event, Dana White was asked to comment on the verbal spat that occurred between Strickland and ‘MGK’.

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

Strickland (28-6 MMA) most recently competed at last month’s UFC 297 event in Toronto, where he suffered a split decision loss to Dricus Du Plessis to relinquish his middleweight world title.

‘Tarzan’ is currently awaiting his next assignment from Dana White and company.
