“Conor McGregor is the biggest star in the history of Mixed Martial Arts. 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 parent’s spare room in Dublin to claiming multiple championship UFC belts and seven figure pay-packets in Las Vegas.

The years of training that McGregor has put in before his world-wide fame & recognition has paid off big-time in the last four years. You just need to take a quick look at his Instagram to see that! He is currently promoting his huge upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather, who is considered to be one of the best boxers of all time. The fight will be a new venture for McGregor, who has not participated in such a large-scale boxing fight before. The hugely anticipated fight takes place on August 26th in Las Vegas. Many have expressed their doubts about Conor’s boxing ability, but in true McGregor form, he continues to talk a good game. We’ll have to wait and see if he’s right.
