According to Italian media personality and DJ Francesco Facchinetti, the Irishman was partying with him… to the point of inviting him to another party, then hit him suddenly, breaking his nose in the process. This is what Facchinetti explained on his accountInstagram :
“At 2:30 am that night, I was attacked by Mr McGregor. The very famous McGregor, who hit me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards. He attacked me without motivation, because we talked for over two hours and had fun together too. I could have shut up and said nothing to anyone, but since I’m here to say it, I have to say that this person is really violent and dangerous. ”
“I took a punch for nothing. This punch could go to anyone. My friends, my wife or other friends. This is why I decided to sue Conor McGregor because he is a violent and dangerous person. ”
UFC star Conor McGregor is once again at the center of an alleged physical altercation with a celebrity, this time in Italy.
Famous Italian singer and DJ Francesco Facchinetti has accused McGregor of punching him in the face and breaking his nose, the information was first reported by Il Messagero . According to Facchinetti, he and his wife spent a late evening with McGregor and his fiancee, Dee Devlin . At around 2:30 a.m., Facchinetti said the couples were about to leave for another party when McGregor attacked him out of nowhere in front of witnesses and bodyguards.
“I took a hit for nothing,” Facchinetti said on his Instagram story. He added that he would take legal action against McGregor. “This punch could be given 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. ”
Facchinetti’s wife Wilma Helena Faissol shared a detailed account on her Instagram stories of what she witnessed.
“Out of nowhere he threw a punch in Francesco’s face,” Faissol said. “(McGregor) invited us to another party. Francesco said, “OK, let’s go” and he hit him. Fortunately, (Francesco) was very close so (McGregor) couldn’t charge (his punch). Francesco flew back, fell on the table, then on the floor. The first thing that came to my 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 keep hitting 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. ”
Facchinetti, unsurprisingly, criticized McGregor’s alleged actions.
“Real fighters don’t behave like that,” Facchinetti said. “They know they’ve got guns instead of hands, and they sure don’t start hitting anyone who comes in front of them.”
In recent days, McGregor has shared posts on his social media accounts about him and his family – including his mother – on vacation in Rome.
This is the second time in two months that McGregor has become physically aggressive with a celebrity. On the VMA’s red carpet on September 12 in New York City, McGregor was embroiled in a fight with rapper Machine Gun Kelly and actress Megan Fox .
