MMA superstar Conor McGregor has been accused of punching an Italian DJ at a hotel room in Rome just hours after the baptism of his son in the Vatican.
McGregor allegedly broke the man’s nose by punching him in the face at a party later into Saturday evening.
Francesco Facchinetti claims the attack was completely unprovoked and occurred whilst him and his wife were partying with the UFC fighter at the St. Regis Hotel.
He also claimed there was 10 witnesses to the assault.
Facchinetti posted on Instagram: “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.”
He also announced that he plans to sue McGregor for injuries caused.
Conor McGregor or his representatives have made no comment on the incident.
