Strickland later took to social media to express his disbelief that Kelly, who is engaged to actress Megan Fox, was present at the event. UFC CEO Dana White, who had invited Kelly as his guest, defended the musician, stating that the incident was due to Strickland's behavior rather than any fault of Kelly's.

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Strickland explained that he had initially insulted Kelly's attire upon meeting him, which led to the confrontation. He expressed frustration with what he perceives as a disconnect between celebrities like Kelly and everyday people, referring to them as having a "weird god complex."

Despite tensions escalating, the altercation remained verbal, and Strickland was eventually escorted away from the situation by his girlfriend. Reflecting on the incident, Strickland admitted to not initially recognizing Kelly and expressed shock upon learning about his relationship with Megan Fox.

The incident capped off a dramatic week for Strickland, who also met with former president Donald Trump and engaged in a viral sparring match with a social influencer. Strickland's colorful commentary on the encounter with Kelly has sparked discussion among fans and media alike, highlighting the sometimes unpredictable nature of interactions in the world of combat sports and entertainment.
