"The thing that saddens me the most, besides being one of Conor's fans of the first hour, is that real fighters don't behave like that," his alleged victim continued.

"They know they have guns instead of hands and they certainly don't punch the first random one in front of them. He could throw it at my wife, any of my friends in that room.

"I trust in the authorities and in the Italian law. We welcomed him as a hero and instead he's just a bully of the worst kind … what a disappointment. He will also have 50 million followers, money and power, but I don't care, I'll go straight to the end."

Mr. Facchinetti's wife Wilma Helena Faissol also commented on the incident, writing on social media: “Out of nowhere, he threw a punch in the face of Francesco.

"He was inviting us to another party. Francesco said, ‘Okay, let’s go’ and he hit him. Luckily, he [Francesco] was very close so he [McGregor] couldn’t load up on his punch.

"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."

McGregor has repeatedly found himself on the wrong side of the law having been fined for punching an elderly man in a Dublin pub in 2019.

A year earlier he pleaded guilty to assault in New York after he attacked a bus transporting UFC fighters including Khabib Nurmagomedov.

McGregor avoided jail after agreeing a plea deal which saw him ordered to complete community service and attend anger management classes.

He was also involved in an altercation with rapper Machine Gun Kelly during an awards ceremony in New York last month.
