Conor McGregor teases new film
CONOR McGREGOR has teased fans with the first look at his new documentary based on his life.
Universal Pictures will tell the story of the UFC superstar’s incredible career on the big screen.
McGregor, 29, shared the official trailer for Notorious across his social media accounts.
He wrote: “We are excited to announce that McGregor Sports Entertainment and Universal Pictures have teamed up to bring you ‘The Notorious’.
“Coming soon, to a theatre near you!”
The clip shows the Irishman throughout various aspects of his life, and he says: “History: long after I’m gone, the story will be told.”
A release date for the film is yet to be announced.
Familiar faces set to appear in the movie alongside McGregor are Arnold Schwarzenegger, his partner Dee Devlin, UFC chief Dana White and Jose Aldo, his biggest win to date.
The film will document McGregor’s spectacular rise from living in his parents’ spare room in Dublin to becoming a two-weight UFC champion and millionaire.
The trailer comes as McGregor is training for his cross-sports fight against boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
Some fans fear Mayweather, who retired with a spotless 49-0 record, will easily outbox McGregor in his first bout inside the ring.
But the American, 40, insists the scrap will NOT be a dull – as his opponent is a “warrior”.
“We will rate him No2 and I’m No1 – he’s got heart.
“He’s a warrior, that’s what I do know about Conor McGregor.
“He’s going to fight to the end. He’s approaching this fight like I’m approaching this fight. It’s kill or be killed. Believe me when I say this, It’s not going to be a dull fight.”
The five-division champion said he is not worried about McGregor using any MMA moves in their boxing rules fight, as he will just leave the referee to do his job.
He said: “Am I worried about an elbow or knee? I’m going to let the referee do his job, he will be extremely fair but firm. Nevada Commission is about treating everybody fair.”
