An Italian DJ is pressing charges against Conor McGregor, according to multiple news outlets.

Francesco Facchinetti claims the MMA fighter punched him in the face at a hotel in Rome on Saturday, according to CNN.

Facchinetti said the unprovoked attack happened as a night of partying was ending.

"He is dangerous, he needs to be stopped," Facchinetti told CNN.

McGregor is no stranger to run-ins with the law. He was arrested in 2019 after slapping a phone out of a fan's hand. Charges were eventually dropped.

McGregor also reached a plea deal after launching an attack on a bus full of fellow MMA fighters in 2018.

The Irish-born fighter has not commented on the latest allegations.
