Michael Bisping has branded Conor McGregor a "bully" after being the subject of an assault allegation in Rome.

McGregor has been accused of punching DJ Francesco Facchinetti after partying with the musician in Italy last weekend.

The Irishman is yet to comment on the allegations which have been described in detail but his alleged victim.

And former UFC middleweight Bisping has branded the 33-year-old a "bully" in the wake of the alleged altercation.

'I'm not a fan of this guy ( Conor McGregor ) you know?," Bisping said. "I don't think anyone is a fan of this guy, you know, and I think that soon he's going to run out of steam.

"The train is going to run out of steam, you know what I mean? It can't continue like this and one day he's gonna pick on the wrong person and by the way, the old guy at the bar, Machine Gun Kelly and DJ Francesco Facchinetti, these aren't tough guys.

"I'm not trying to sound tough for myself but he's not starting on me. Francesco Facchinetti looks like he couldn't punch his way out of a wet paper bag.

"Machine Gun Kelly looks like the biggest wimp you've ever seen in your life and the old guy in the bar is an old guy at the bar. If you're such a bad***, go and pick on someone your own size because someone not your own size isn't hard is it?

"Pick up someone that can fight. You're a professional fighter. You are supposed to be looking for challenges but what he is essentially turned into right now is a bully you know and no one likes a bully."

Bisping referred to another recent incident involving McGregor, where the Irishman was embroiled in chaotic scenes at the VMA's with musician Machine Gun Kelly.

The Dubliner was also fined in 2019 after he assaulted an elderly man in a pub.

McGregor took a flight with his fiancee Dee Devlin and three children from Miami to Rome as part of a holiday to christen his son Rian.

He has been caught several times in the public eye including being mobbed by fans while shopping, and was also pictured with Roma manager Jose Mourinho in the capital city.

The trip was also taken to collect his brand new £2.6 million custom-made Lamborghini yacht which pays tribute to his Proper Twelve whiskey brand.

Then the allegation came from Mr. Facchineti, which he has claimed left him with a split lip and broken nose.

"I just wanted to make it clear that I am - or actually I was at this point - a great fan of McGregor, so when I was told I could go and see him I thought it would be nice to be there with him and for two-and-a-half hours it seemed like I was in a movie," Facchineti said on his YouTube channel.

"Being able to talk to McGregor… My Brazilian wife spoke to him, they spoke about Brazil, we spoke about Jose Aldo and he told us he had to fight in Brazil but then he lost against Khabib [Nurmagomedov] and no longer went there.

"After that... obviously my words are one version, then we also have to listen to his version if he wants, but I had about 10 witnesses with me, of which four were Italian.

"Suddenly, in front of the 10 people who were there with me, in front of his bodyguards who in the meantime had also become my friends (we had also exchanged phone numbers, with his bodyguards and his Irish friends), his brain went off, he saw black and punched me."

The Daily Mirror has since contacted Conor McGregor's representative and the Rome police for comment.
