Conor McGregor is back in the news, and once again, it’s for an alleged incident that took place outside of the Octagon.

The Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti has reportedly accused McGregor of punching him this past weekend in Italy. According to reports, including one from Pro Sports Extra, Facchinetti claims he and his wife were spending time with McGregor and the latter’s fiancee, Dee Devlin.

According to Facchinetti, the controversial star punched him, unprovoked, as they were about to travel to a party. Facchinetti’s wife, Wilma Helena Faissol, has also reportedly backed her husband’s account of what allegedly happened, via social media.

Facchinetti claims his nose was broken in the alleged assault.

In recent days, McGregor has been posting images of him and his family vacationing in Italy. The Irish fighter has yet to comment on the alleged incident.

Last month, McGregor was involved in a highly publicized altercation with rapper ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly. The former UFC champ has made headlines on account of legal issues or allegations several times, including in 2018 when he struck an elderly man in a pub.
