Netflix has released the first trailer for McGregor Forever, its upcoming four-part docuseries about UFC star Conor McGregor.
Despite the fact that it’s been close to two years since McGregor last fought in the UFC — a loss to Dustin Poirier — the 34-year-old Irishman remains one of the biggest stars in the sport, as evidenced by this Netflix project and his upcoming stint as a coach on The Ultimate Fighter.
Check out the full trailer for McGregor Forever, which will hit Netflix in the United States on Wednesday, May 17, below:
Here is the official synopsis for McGregor Forever, courtesy of Netflix:
McGregor Forever charts superstar MMA fighter, Conor McGregor’s epic journey back to the top of the UFC ladder. This 4-part documentary series is an all-access look at this controversial superstar, along with the deeper history of what brought him to this point.
Making his professional MMA debut at the age of 18 back in 2007, McGregor signed with the UFC in 2013 and made his debut for the company in a bout against Marcus Brimage on April 6, 2013.
Over the course of the next few years, McGregor would establish himself as the biggest star in the sport following fights against Jose Aldo, Nate Diaz, and Eddie Alvarez, which culminated in him becoming the first UFC fighter to hold UFC championships in two weight classes simultaneously in 2016.
From there, however, McGregor’s career would take a downturn both in and out of the ring, as a litany of controversies and losses ultimately resulted in him making just three UFC appearances from November 2016 to January 2020.
McGregor would ultimately return to the UFC octagon in 2021 for a duo of fights against Dustin Poirier, although he ultimately lost both and hasn’t fought since. Earlier this year, however, it was announced that McGregor would serve as a coach for season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter and will be fighting rival coach Michael Chandler following its conclusion.
