Conor McGregor has been vacationing in Rome recently and it seems that he’s once again managed to get into trouble, with a famous Italian DJ accusing him of breaking his nose during an unprovoked attack at a a party in the city.
That’s the word according to the DJ himself, Francesco Facchinetti, who have his 1 million followers on Instagram the full details of what went down this past weekend.
“At 2.30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor,” Facchinetti said in the Instagram video. “The very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards. He attacked me without motivation as we talked for more than two hours and we also had fun together. I could have shut up and not say anything to anyone, but since I’m here to tell it, I must say that that person is really violent and dangerous.”
Fachinetti went on to say that he now intends to sue McGregor.
“I took a punch for nothing. That punch could go to anyone. My friends, my wife, or other friends. That’s why I decided to sue Conor McGregor because he is a violent and dangerous person,”
Fachinetti’s wife, Wilma Helena Faissol, also gave her account of what happened.
“Out of nowhere he threw a punch in the face of Francesco,” Faissol said. “(McGregor) was inviting us to another party. Francesco said, ‘OK, let’s go,’ and he hit him. Luckily, (Francesco) was very close so (McGregor) couldn’t load up (his punch). Francesco flew back, fell on the table, and then on the ground. The first thing that came to mind was, ‘Are we kidding? Is it a show?’
“Then I was paralyzed. I turned around and saw that his friends were holding him against the wall because he wanted to continue beating Francesco. Then they took him away. I turned on the light, and the guards turned them off. Francesco was bleeding. I wanted to help him, and the guards chased us away.”
The incident occurred just weeks after McGregor was involved in a scuffle with rapper Machine Gun Kelly at the VMA’s in Los Angeles.
