An Italian DJ has accused Conor McGregor of assault following incident last weekend

Surprise, surprise. UFC star Conor McGregor is once again in trouble with the law.

An Italian DJ known as Francesco Facchinetti has accused the Irishman of assault during an incident that took place at a luxury hotel in Rome last weekend. He has formally decided to press charges against the former two-division UFC champion.

According to reports, Facchinetti was invited by McGregor to a party at the hotel. When Facchinetti wanted to leave early, McGregor didn’t take too kindly to it, and allegedly punched him in the nose and mouth. Facchinetti sustained a concussion from the reported assault, which ultimately convinced him to take this matter to the police.

“He is dangerous…He needs to be stopped.” said Facchinetti.

UFC president Dana White has chosen to stay out of the situation until more information comes to light.

“I honestly don’t even know enough about it to comment on it…Obviously I’ve seen what you guys — you guys have seen more than me, actually, to be honest with you.” said White.

“I haven’t talked to Conor, so I don’t know what the truth is. I don’t know exactly what happened. So to comment on it, I really can’t.”

UFC star Conor McGregor announced that he has undergone successful surgery to repair fractures of the tibia and fibula in his left leg. The procedure lasted three hours.

“Onwards and upwards we go…We dust ourselves off. We build ourselves back and we come back better than ever. Let’s go team” said McGregor following the surgery.

He sustained the devastating injury during the first round of his fight against Dustin Poirier this past weekend at UFC 264.

Despite a doctor’s stoppage, he sustained yet another loss to his resume. He has lost three of his past four bouts since returning to the UFC after his boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather.

Whether the fans want it or not, it appears that we will get another fight between Poirier and McGregor.

“When Conor is healed and ready to go, we’ll do the rematch, I guess…Poirier will do his thing until Conor is ready” said UFC president Dana White.
