Popular Italian DJ, singer, and TV personality Francesco Facchinetti is making some shocking claims about a UFC superstar. Conor McGregor reportedly punched the Italian DJ and television personality during a night out clubbing, just hours after having his third son baptized at The Vatican in Rome.
Facchinetti tells the story as he and his wife were out partying and having a good time with McGregor for two hours before he got invited to another party with the UFC star. Soon after accepting the invitation, he would be punched in the face and got his nose broken.
“At 2:30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor, that very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards,” Facchinetti said, via a transcription and Google translation. “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 it went well and I’m here to tell it, I must say that that person is really violent and dangerous.”
Facchinetti says he plans to sue McGregor.
“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,” Facchinetti told Il Massaggero.
The DJ’s wife, Wilma Faissol, described the incident the same way on her Instagram account.
“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.”
We can’t really say that something like this is beneath McGregor, since the last time we saw him, he was trying to attack Machine Gun Kelly at the MTV Music Video Awards on the red carpet. We still have no clue how that came about.
Both Fachhinetti and his wife said they wanted to warn people to stay far away from McGregor.
