Francesco Facchinetti has asked for video footage of Conor McGregor's alleged attack on him at a party in Rome. According to Facchinetti, the video footage will mean the end of McGregor's career as a professional fighter.

In an exclusive interview with, the Italian DJ said:

"Where are the videos? I think, if that video is going out, sorry for Mr. McGregor but this is the last time he can punch in normal life and inside the octagon because I'm waiting that type of video. When I went out I say to my wife and my friends I don't want to do nothing you know. He can kill me okay? Because his punch is like a Kalashnikov, he can kill me okay? I am alive, I'm lucky, I wan't to go back. My friend Ben said to me, 'if you don't do nothing you are f***ing stupid because you saw what happened. The bodyguards are not for defend[ing] McGregor against the people, they are defend[ing] the people from Mr. McGregor.' He told me 'you need to go to the police first because the next time he punch another guy and that guy die or go to the hospital or something bad happens, it's also your fault..."

Facchinetti said his initial reaction was to let the incident go because he was happy to have come out of the altercation alive. However, the Italian DJ later felt he didn't want McGregor to inflict further physical harm on others, thus taking legal action against the former two-division UFC champ.
