A documentary about the life and rise of McGregor will be released in cinemas in the U.K and Ireland on November 1. The film follows McGregor from his life on the dole in Ireland, right up to the historic boxing match with Floyd Mayweather in August. McGregor fans in the America and Canada will have to wait until November 8 to watch the film, which will be out in New Zealand and Australia on November 9.
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. Featuring unprecedented access, never before seen moments and explosive fight footage, this is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at a sporting icon and his spectacular rise from the bottom to the very top.
Collider Productions releases the trailer for the documentary, The McGregor Effect, which will be released on August 20. It includes narrations from fans who have been inspired by McGregor, such as Thomas Nolan, who was inspired to lose a huge amount of weight and become a personal trainer.
It’s a few different backgrounds my story being one. Another is the guys who done the mural in the gym of him smacking Mayweather, another one is an Irish female world kickboxing champion. [It’s about] how he’s inspired people in not only sports, but all aspects of life, basically giving hope to a country that was becoming a bunch of nagging negative Nancys.
The first pay-per view commercial is released for the McGregor-Mayweather fight.
Two kings collide. One will reign.

No-one has had the deuce in the UFC, I’m gonna go and get them two belts and take out two divisions. If anyone can do it it’s me. no-one else can do it.

UFC releases a second trailer for Bad Blood, showing McGregor sparring with southpaws, including Wallace.
I’m certainly preparing a lot more specific. Usually, I don’t prepare specific, because they always pull out, every time. I know Nate will show up. This time I know this fight will go down. This time I know I’ll be facing a tall, lanky southpaw, with the height, the weight, and the reach on me. So I am preparing accordingly…I’m feeling very confident. It’s gonna be a bad night for Nate.
For the first fight we didn’t even have one training session with a similar opponent. Now, it’s all we’ve done for the last few months.

They thought he was untouchable. Like he was Superman.
We were certain to fight each other for a long time. And then it came about. It came about quickly..I was dominating the fight, and then, like that, I lost. How can I slap a guy’s face all around the Octagon for eight minutes, and then lose that way?
