The once admirable Conor McGregor found himself in trouble yet again early Sunday morning for allegedly punching an Italian DJ, resulting in a broken nose.
According to social media posts from Francisco Facchinetti and his wife, the incident reportedly happened at around 2:30 am when McGregor, without any provocation, assaulted the DJ out of nowhere.
First reported by II Messaggero and translated by Pro Sports Extra, Facchinetti says he and McGregor spent more than two hours “having fun” and talking to each other prior to the incident and that Conor even invited them to go to another party. When the DJ accepted, McGregor allegedly punched him in front of 10 witnesses.
As a result, the DJ plans on suing McGregor because he believes him to be a “really violent and dangerous person.” Stating that he “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,” said Facchinetti.
Facchinetti’s wife, Wilma, also explained the incident on her social media
“Then out of nowhere, he threw a punch in the face of Francesco. He was inviting us to another party. Francesco said, ‘Okay, let’s go’ and he hit him. Luckily, he [Francseco] was very close so [McGregor] couldn’t load up on 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 tohelp him and the guards chased us away.”
“He will stay in Italy until October 26th. If you see him stay away from him. Don’t go near him and ask for autographs because he is an unstable and dangerous person,” Wilma warned.
McGregor was recently involved in an altercation with another music artist, Machine Gun Kelly at last months VMA’s. McGregor or his team have not yet commented on the allegations at this time.
