Take a look at the trailer that Netflix has unveiled for McGregor Forever, a 4-part documentary series focused on the controversial MMA superstar that is Conor McGregor.
The docuseries will be looking at McGregor’s epic journey back to the top of the UFC ladder. Netflix describes it as “an all-access look at this controversial superstar, along with the deeper history of what brought him to this point.”
As for just how warts-and-all it is remains to be seen. McGregor himself is producer on the series, so we’ll see if they’re willing to provide a smudgy reflection of the Irish mixed martial artist whose brutal strikes and trash-talking swagger made him one o fthe UFC’s biggest draws.
“Conor is unlike anyone I’ve ever collaborated with. As one of his trainers described him, he’s an entirely unreasonable man,” co-director Gotham Chopra (Man in the Arena: Tom Brady, Kobe Bryant’s Muse) said in a statement. “And for that reason, he’s impossible not to watch and be fascinated by. Don’t look away, because I guarantee you, you will definitely miss something inexplicably wild.”
McGregor Forever, co-directed by Darragh Mccarthy, will premiere on Netflix on May 17th
