It looks like Universal managed to get unprecedented access to the UFC Lightweight champion, following his journey from a young and up and coming fighter in Ireland to the biggest star in the fight game.
A statement on the film's official website reads:
Filmed over the course of 4 years, Notorious is the exclusive, all-access account of Conor’s meteoric rise from claiming benefits and living in his parents' spare room in Dublin to claiming multiple championship UFC belts and seven figure pay-packets in Las Vegas.
Check out the trailer below:
Highlights from the trailer include candid footage of Mcgregor in victory and defeat, as well as intriguing footage which suggests the UFC man was training with a serious knee injury in the run up to his match with Chad Mendes at UFC 189.
Per the website, the movie will be released in theatres in the UK and Ireland on November 1st, in the United States on November 8th and Australia and New Zealand on November 9th. The rest of the world will be able to see it next year.
