“At 2.30 this night I was attacked by Mr. McGregor,” Facchinetti said in the video. “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.”

Jake Paul begs Conor McGregor to “try something” following alleged DJ assault
Jake Paul has made a beckoning call for Conor McGregor to “try something” if the pair ever meet after the Irishman allegedly assaulted a DJ in Rome.
Musician Francesco Facchinetti alleged that McGregor assaulted him during a party in the early hours of Sunday morning, leaving him with a broken nose and split lip.
McGregor has been in Rome with his fiancee Dee Devlin as they christened their five-month-old son Rian in Vatican City.
Mr. Facchinetti called the police following the incident at the five-star St Regis Hotel – and plans to sue McGregor.
Now YouTube star Paul has used the allegation as an opportunity to troll his rival, calling for the 33-year-old to “start something” if the pair face-off.
Paul posted on Twitter : “Conor likes to play tough guy with musicians, Conor please try and do something when you see me!”
But his trip to Italy has now been overshadowed by the alleged incident.
“The very famous McGregor, who punched me in the mouth, broke my nose in front of ten witnesses, his friends and his bodyguards,” Mr. Facchinetti claimed. “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 said anything to anyone, but since I’m here to tell it, I must say that that person is really violent and dangerous.”
The Daily Mirror has contacted McGregor’s representative for comment on the incident.
A spokesperson for the St. Regis Hotel told the Daily Mirror: “We will offer the police our full support in their investigation.
“The safety and security of our guests and employees is always our first priority.”
McGregor is currently travelling while continuing his rehabilitation from a broken leg injury suffered against Dustin Poirier in July.
The Irishman was mobbed by fans during his first day in Italy, as he went shopping with his partner and he also met footballing royalty when he was pictured with Roma manager Jose Mourinho.
He is expected to remain in Rome until the end of the month but has reportedly not yet been spoken to by police.

Police were called after the Irishman allegedly got into the scuffle with musician Facchinetti while the two attended an event at the St Regis hotel in Rome.
YouTube star-turned boxer Paul, who once offered McGregor $50million to fight in the past, was quick to take aim at the alleged incident.
He tweeted: “Conor likes to play tough guy with musicians… Conor PLEASE try and do something when you see me !!”
McGregor, 33, and his partner Dee Devlin have been in Italy over the last few days for the christening of their youngest child Rian in the Vatican.
But the trip faces ending on a low note as both Facchinetti, 41, and his wife Wilma Faissol, 39, made the allegations to their nearly 1.5million combined followers on Instagram.
Facchinetti posted a video recounting the alleged incident and showed off cuts on both of his lips.
