It seems that Conor McGregor is making the news for all the wrong reasons lately, which isn’t that unusual. The latest legal hiccup The Notorious One has found himself involved in was his alleged assault of Italian DJ Francesco Facchinetti over the weekend in Rome.
Ever the opportunist, YouTube star and boxer Jake Paul found out about the incident and didn’t mince words when he took to Twitter to call Conor out for it:
Coked up Conor likes to play tough guy with musicians… Conor PLEASE try and do something when you see me !! https://t.co/CZfPtJApGo— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) October 17, 2021
“Coked up Conor likes to play tough guy with musicians... Conor PLEASE try and do something when you see me !!”
This was McGregor’s second dust-up with a musician in as many months, as the former two-division UFC champion got into a scuffle with Machine Gun Kelly in September at the MTV Video Music Awards as well. That incident was quickly dismissed, but it won’t be as easy to walk away from this time since the DJ plans to file assault charges on Conor.
As for Paul, he’s currently looking for his next boxing opponent, and has called out McGregor numerous times in the past. It won’t happen, but it’s not stopping Paul from trying.
