McGregor Accused Of Breaking Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti’s Nose
Connor McGregor has managed to land himself in hot water again.
The Irish MMA star is now being accused of punching DJ Francesco Facchinetti out of the blue while he was in Italy. McGregor was in Rome for the baptism of his third son at The Vatican. He was then at a nightclub for over two hours with Facchinetti.
“At 2:30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor,” Facchinetti said in an 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.”
“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,” he said.
Facchinetti’s wife spoke out about the incident with McGregor.
“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 [Francesco] was very close so he [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 to help him and the guards chased us away.”
“He will stay in Italy until October 26th,” she added. “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.”
McGregor has not responded to the allegations.
