Conor McGregor Doubles Down on Comeback Plan in First Footage for Netflix’s ‘McGregor Forever’

The streamer announced Tuesday that the four-part unscripted series, focusing on the comeback efforts of the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, will begin on May 17. Preview footage for the project, courtesy of producer Religion of Sports, shows McGregor recovering in a hospital bed after sustaining injuries including a broken leg during his UFC 264 loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

“I thought it was over too – that’s why I switched to a different mode,” McGregor says of concerns the match could end his career. “Now, it was the adrenaline too, and I know I would have calmed down, and part of me thinks, ‘Jesus, imagine if it was taken from me like that.’ I would be a different person, and it was a little scary, to be honest.”

He adds, “Like a stone, it’s McGregor forever, and don’t forget it.”

The Irish athlete Posted the trailer to his Instagram page with the message, “The only place to hear my true story, that’s just beginning!”

McGregor forever is directed by Religion of Sports co-founder Gotham Chopra. Chopra, Ameet Sankaran, Giselle Parets, Audie Attar, Peter Berg and Matt Goldberg serve as executive producers.

“Conor is unlike anyone I’ve ever worked with. As one of his trainers described him, he is a completely unreasonable man,” Chopra said in a statement. “And for that reason, it’s impossible not to look at him and be fascinated. Don’t look away, because I guarantee you’re sure to miss something inexplicably wild.

McGregor forever’The four-hour episodes will launch on Netflix on May 17.
