Former UFC champ-champ, Conor McGregor, was busy in Italy having his children christened in the Vatican and then getting himself involved in yet another assault allegation.
And it wouldn’t be a full-circle combate news day if Jake Paul didn’t insert himself into the conversation as well.
Shortly after news broke that McGregor had allegedly assaulted a DJ in Italy and broken his nose, Paul took to Twitter to ask for a fight with him.
“Coked up Conor likes to play tough with musicians,” Paul wrote. “Conor please try and do something when you see me.”
Paul is referencing a separate assault accusation when McGregor was seen lunging at rapper Machine Gun Kelly on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards just last month.
Over the weekend an Italian DJ alleged that McGregor struck him and broke his nose without provocation while he was on a double date with McGregor and Dee Devlin.
“At 2.30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor,” Francesco Facchinetti said in a video posted to his Instagram account. “The very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards. He attacked me without motivation as we talked for more than two hours and we also had fun together. I could have shut up and not say anything to anyone, but since I’m here to tell it, I must say that that person is really violent and dangerous.”
McGregor has yet to comment on the incident at press time.
