Former two-division UFC Champion Conor McGregor is back in the news after allegations of committing assault in Rome, Italy.
Famous Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti took to social media Sunday to allege that McGregor had attacked him during a night out. He alleges that the attack came unprovoked, and that he was unsure of why it occurred.
“The very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards,” said Facchinetti via Instagram Story, per a translation published by MMA Mania. “He attacked me without motivation as we talked for more than two hours and we also had fun together.”
Facchinetti has mentioned his intention to file a lawsuit due to the incident.
McGregor has yet to issue a public comment on the allegations.
McGregor made headlines last month after getting into a physical confrontation with rapper Machine Gun Kelly at the MTV VMAs in Brooklyn, New York, USA.
