Conor McGregor unveils new Netflix documentary series

Conor McGregor has certainly got UFC fans excited after sharing a clip of his new Netflix documentary which is due to air on the streaming platform next month. The trailer for the four-part fly-on-the-wall docuseries, titled ‘McGregor Forever’, sees McGregor admit that he thought his MMA career was over after suffering a serious leg injury in his 2021 trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday morning (April 25), McGregor addressed his 9.9m followers as he penned: “You heard it here first. 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 tweet also contains the trailer video for the series, featuring his confession that he thought he’d never fight again. McGregor will return to the UFC later this year when he faces Michael Chandler as part of the 31th season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Over footage of the moment McGregor goes down against Poirier, the narrator states: “So like, after the fact, there was speculation that that was a career ender.” McGregor, seen nursing the injury in hospital, agrees as he reveals: “I thought it was over as well, that is why I flipped into a different mode.”

He added: “Now it was the adrenaline as well and I would have calmed down but part of me is like ‘imagine it was just taken from me like that’. I would be a different person and it was a bit scary to be honest. But it’s McGregor forever, that’s it and don’t you forget it.”

With just seconds remaining in the opening round, McGregor’s leg crumpled underneath him, with the former featherweight and lightweight champion left unable to continue. He later received extensive treatment and underwent surgery following the injury.

After a long road to recovery, McGregor announced that he will be making his return to the octagon against Chandler later this year. An official date and venue has yet to be confirmed for the event, but the 34-year-old is currently in Las Vegas filming for the coaching part of the series.

White has also revealed details of a clash between the McGregor and Chandler during the filming of The Ultimate Fighter. He said: “Chandler and Conor were very respectful to each other, and then some things started escalating that you’ll see on the show.

“They do not like each other now. A lot of s*** went down. I don’t look at stuff that’s good for the show or things like that; whatever happens, happens. The stuff that just happened shouldn’t have happened, and I’m getting old – I would have been in there sooner back in the day, but [it wasn’t] good.”

A victory for McGregor could see him go on to face Brit star and current welterweight champion Leon Edwards if he hopes to become the first three-weight champion in UFC history.
