Conor McGregor is under an avalanche of criticism after reportedly assaulting a disc jockey during his night out in Rome. The 41-year-old DJ said he was attacked by the former two-division UFC champion with no provocation from him. Francesco Facchinetti stated that he would take McGregor to court since he could have harmed his wife, children, or other friends. The alleged strike from the Irishman left him with a bleeding nose and a cut inside his lip. “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 posted on his Instagram.

When Jake Paul heard about the altercation, he took a shot at the Irishman on Twitter. He slammed McGregor for punching the Italian musician and referred to him as “coked up.” He also had an additional request for the “Notorious.”

Since demanding a boxing bout with him last year, Paul has made a series of foul-mouthed comments about Irishman. Whereas McGregor has paid no attention to Paul. Nonetheless, the internet star believes he will one day share the boxing ring with the UFC fighter.
