According to Facchinetti, McGregor’s bodyguards had to hold him against the wall to stop him from doing more damage. Recently, the Italian DJ appeared in an interview with Marc Raimondi of ESPN. While talking about the incident, he said, “The hour was one o’clock in the night and we were happy… We were inside this meeting room and wait for Conor McGregor.”

“All the bodyguards are nice with us… After 35 minutes, the boss of the bodyguard went to me and said now Mr. Conor McGregor is coming. Please turn off the phone… And after 30 minutes Conor McGregor came inside the room. And we screamed ‘Hey Conor, nice to meet you, Francesco. She’s my wife’ and everything was perfect a perfect night. We spent more than two hours we speak about everything”

“We drank. It was a normal room without music, you know, just speaking and chilling… And Ben went to Conor and said, Hey Conor, we have to go. We were around him because he’s the star… He said hey guys stay here for other 10 minutes. And we say okay and at that moment his brain completely, you know, turned off. He punched me in my face. And I was lucky because his friends and his bodyguards immediately in one second they took him and put him on the wall and after take him outside the room because he tried to do more. It’s completely crazy.”
