Things have been pretty quiet in ‘Conor-land’ recently. But that’s now ending.
Netflix’s Conor McGregor documentary ‘McGregor Forever’ kept us guessing since was drip-fed to us late last year. But surprise! It’s landed on the streaming platform.
So we hope you enjoyed some Conor quiet time. Because hype is about to get very real and he has a comeback fight on the radar as well.
One of the richest and biggest names in world sport will make his long-awaited return to the octagon some time in the second half of 2023; he will take on Michael ‘Iron’ Chandler (23-8). The fight details, much like the lead up to this Conor McGregor documentary was, isn’t totally clear just yet.
You can be sure the high profile Netflix docu-series will build up excitement for his fighting return like nothing else. And if there’s any more news on the Netflix front, you can be sure we’ll be across it.
Anyway, as mentioned, McGregor Forever is the name of the docu-series. And here’s some info you might be after.
Is the Conor McGregor documentary now on Netflix?
That’s a big fat YES.
It’s a four-parter, featuring roughly three hours, 20 minutes worth of almost entirely unseen Conor McGregor footage and narration. You can go straight to Episode 1 here.
Does the Conor McGregor documentary have a trailer?
It only landed online two weeks before the Netflix release, but there is.
Watch it in the YouTube embed:

What does the Conor McGregor documentary cover?
The Conor comeback.
Cameras have been closely documenting the Irish megastar’s resurrection, after he severely broke his leg during a fight with Dustin Poirier in July, 2021. It’ll be more than two years when he eventually makes his UFC return, but that doesn’t mean the Conor McGregor documentary with Netflix won’t be fascinating.
As it’s already been illuded to, the brand new Conor McGregor documentary will also act as hype heading into his octagon return against Michael Chandler. That will happen some time before the year’s out.
This docco will follow Notorious (2017), a binge-worthy, access-all-areas account of McGregor’s personal and professional journey that hit Netflix in 2017.
But as for what’s in store this time around, McGregor’s twitter timeline offered some of the juicy detail.
Given three of McGregor’s last four fights have ended in defeat, this latest release will no doubt feature a lot more adversity than ever before. And how that has shaped the man that will look to put some things behind him against Chandler in the back half of 2023.
There’s a strong implication Conor just hasn’t been close to 100% when ‘making the walk’ in recent fights.
He revealed he’d ‘crushed’ bones in his foot before the 2018 Khabib Nurmagomedov battle; ending in a fourth round submission.
McGregor’s also desperate to shed light on a ‘misconception’ that his training intensity has dropped, as his bank account has grown.
“The premise of ‘i don’t work as hard as I used to since succeeding financially’ will be debunked fully,” he added on Twitter.
“You are going to witness insanity in scientific form.”
The 34-year-old Dublin native doesn’t need the money, of course.
But his ability to sell fights and stay relevant is second-to-none.
Speculation is rife there’s another fight brewing as well. It would make a lot of sense something’s announced off the back of hype from this Netflix release.
McGregor will also coach in the upcoming season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’.
Keep a close eye on Notorious’ timeline for more updates.
