You know what they say, when in Rome you break a DJ’s nose. Conor McGregor might be a fantastic fighter in the Octagon, but he’s been getting pretty active in the outside world too. While the Notorious One almost brawled with Machine Gun Kelly in the VMAs, he apparently exchanged punches with a DJ in Rome.

Francesco Facchinetti, a celebrity DJ in Rome, revealed that he had his nose broken by Conor McGregor. The Italian DJ and his wife were chilling with Conor and his fiancée. Around 2:30 AM, Conor threw a punch out of the blue, hurting Facchinetti and breaking his nose.

Facchinetti stated that there was no reason for him to get hit. They were having fun at the party, and Conor even extended an invite to the couple for another party. However, it was because of the broken nose that Facchinetti couldn’t join him. He revealed on Instagram:

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.

The DJ is apparently suing McGregor. His beliefs about the fighter being a dangerous man are fair considering anyone could have gotten hurt. While the statement has not been verified, the act of punching was seen by around 10 bystanders, who can serve as witnesses if need be.
