Universal Confirm Plans To Release A Film Documenting The Rise Of Conor McGregor


The rise of Conor McGregor is to be the subject of a documentary from Universal later this year.

Notorious” will chart the story of McGregor from his beginning of his time in the UFC, rising through the ranks to become the first fighter in the organisation’s history to hold two championship titles at the same time when he added the lightweight belt to the featherweight title he had previously claimed from Jose Aldo.

McGregor himself teased the announcement earlier this week on his Instagram account, when he released trailer footage recorded from his phone.

Here is another power move for you to get excited about. Happy Monday.

This is not the first time McGregor’s rise has documented on film – indeed, it’s not even the first one to have that title. A six-part fly-on-the-wall series, also with the name Notorious, was commissioned and broadcast by RTE (and later by Fox Sports in the US) in 2015.

Universal are yet to announce the release date for the film, but presumably, fans shouldn’t have much longer to wait as they will surely want to maximise impact in the wake of McGregor’s highly-publicised boxing match against Floyd Mayweather on August 26th.
