Guns N' Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin found himself on the receiving end of a punch from Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards.

Stradlin was reportedly hitting on Neil's wife, and when the news of the flirtation was delivered to the Motley crooner, he took a swing at Stradlin and connected. The incident led to Axl Rose challenging Neil to fisticuffs, and although Neil accepted Rose's invitation, no such fight ever occurred.
