Conor McGregor is spending no time dwelling on his recent brawl.
The mixed martial artist, 33, was spotted with his fiancée Dee Devlin at their swanky hotel in Rome on Tuesday, October 19, where the pair appeared to be shaking off accusations that McGregor attacked an Italian DJ two days before.
The UFC fighter looked spiffy in a gold suit jacket while the couple posed for some pics in their hotel lobby just two days after the alleged tussle — which occurred following McGregor and Devlin son Rían's christening. (The UFC champ and the 33-year-old also share Conor Jr. and Croia.)
Francesco Facchinetti — the man reportedly involved in the scuffle with McGregor — posted a video over the weekend to give the backstory of his apparent nose injury.
The DJ claimed in the clip that he was partying with McGregor and Devlin when the Irish fighter allegedly punched him square in the nose in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, October 17.
Facchinetti, who mixes music at La Canzone Del Capitano, claimed that he was “having fun” when he was sucker punched in the face in front of 10 people.
“I took a punch for nothing,” he said in the video. “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’s wife, who was also in attendance, posted about the alleged attack as well, claiming that the punch came “out of nowhere.”
“He was inviting us to another party. Franceso said, ‘Okay, let’s go’ and he hit him,” his wife recalled. “Luckily he [Francesco] was very close so he [Conor] couldn’t load up on his punch. Francesco flew back, fell on the table, and then on the ground. The first thing that came to mind was ‘are we kidding? Is it a show?’"
"I turned around and saw that his friends were holding him against the wall because he wanted to continue beating Francesco," she said. "Then they took him away. I turned on the light and the guards turned them off. Francesco was bleeding. I wanted to help him and the guards chased us away. He will stay in Italy until October 26th. If you see him, stay away from him. Don’t go near him and ask for autographs because he is an unstable and dangerous person."
