Conor McGregor Allegedly Attacks Italian DJ

An Italian DJ is claiming that MMA star Conor McGregor punched him and broke his nose at a party in Rome. 

Francesco Facchinetti said him and his wife were out partying with McGregor and his partner, then things went left.

McGregor invited them to another party and when DJ accepted the invitation, McGregor allegedly punched him in the nose and broke it.

"At 2.30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor," Facchinetti said. "The very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of 10 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."

Facchinette's wife, Wilma, added: "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. 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." 

They are planning to sue the boxer.
