‘You’ll get a ringside seat for some of the biggest challenges I’ve faced, how I bounced back, and why I’m still the man to beat in the UFC.’
Throughout the trailer, which lasts two minutes and four seconds, footage from his fights with Nurmagomedov, Poirier and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone fill the screen.
McGregor, along with his long-time coaches John Kavanagh and Owen Roddy, talk over all the footage and piece together the strenuous journey the ‘Notorious’ has been on.
The Irishman, during his narration, says: ‘I’ve been fighting my entire life. It’s what I was put here to do.
‘I’m extremely proud of what I’ve done and motivated to keep going. This life, it’s an up-and-down mental game.
‘I’m gonna fight for me. I don’t let defeat faze me. The true champions rise again.’
The 34-year-old has been battling back from a horrific leg break sustained against Poirier in July 2021, but has been rumoured to be returning to the UFC this year.
McGregor, along with fellow lightweight Michael Chandler, has been one of the coaches for the 31st season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Traditionally, at the end of every season, the two coaches will then go on to fight each other.
Both McGregor and Chandler are set to face each other this year. However, an official date or venue is yet to be revealed by Dana White and the UFC.
It may be some time before we see the Irishman return to the cage as he is yet to re-join the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
White revealed this year that McGregor’s return will be at lightweight. However, the Irishman has teased a return to welterweight in recent times.
