Conor McGregor makes shock Netflix documentary announcement with trailer revealing moment he thought UFC career was over | The Sun

April 25, 2023

CONOR MCGREGOR has released a trailer for his upcoming Netflix documentary – which is set to hit TV screens next month.

A second documentary on The Notorious has been in the works since the UFC superstar's 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Talk of the doc, however, went cold in the years following the bout – but the Irishman dropped a minute-long teaser trailer out of nowhere early on Tuesday morning.

His accompanying tweet read: "My brand new documentary series McGregor Forever, is coming to @Netflix on May 17!

"The only place to hear my true story, which is only getting started!"

The trailer starts with the gruesome ending to his Las Vegas trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier – which ended when he broke his left leg in the closing stages of the first round.

And it quickly flashes to the former two-division champion wearing a cast and a hospital gown as he reflected on his infamous and X-rated post-fight rant.

The 34-year-old said: "I thought it was over as well, I thought it was over as well.

"That's why I flipped into a different mode, you know.

"It was the adrenaline as well and I know I would've calmed down.

"And part of me is just thinking, 'Jesus, imagine if it was just taken from me like that.'"

McGregor – who has made a full recovery from the horrific break – seemingly admitted he would've gone on a downward spiral if he was told he could never fight again.

He continued: "I would go into a different [place].

"I would be a different person. And it was a bit scary, to be honest.

"But, it's McGregor forever. That's it, isn't it? Like, it's done.

"It's McGregor forever and don't you forget it."

McGregor hasn't set foot inside the octagon since his ill-fated trilogy with Poirier – which went down as a first-round TKO loss.

But he's set to return to action later this year in a mouthwatering showdown with fellow fan favourite Michael Chandler.

A date for the fight, however, has yet to be announced.

That's because McGregor has yet to re-join the United States Anti-Doping Agency's testing pool – which he must be in for a minimum of six months before being eligible to compete.
