- Conor McGregor said he once feared his career had ended in a trailer for a new documentary.
- The next feature is a four-part series detailing McGregor’s return from injury.
- He delivered a deranged tirade shortly after suffering a horrific broken leg in 2021.
Conor McGregor He said he was worried his Ultimate Fighting career was over while speaking from a hospital bed in a trailer for an upcoming Netflix documentary called “McGregor Forever.”
The 34-year-old has not competed since breaking his leg and losing by first-round medical knockout to Dustin Poirier in a bout in July 2021.
McGregor’s leg buckled under its own weight, fracturing his left tibia and fibula.
In one scene from the documentary, he seemed unfazed by the extent of the injury as he spoke as medical professionals tied his leg before placing him on a stretcher to carry him out of the arena after the conclusion of the Poirier fight.
Since then, the Irishman has been tied with a comeback fight later this year against lightweight rival Michael Chandler.
‘McGregor Forever’ is a four-part series on Netflix
The four 60-minute episodes of the documentary series look at McGregor’s recovery from injury, as well as an in-depth look at the “controversial superstar,” Netflix said in a statement.
“Conor is unlike anyone I’ve collaborated with. As one of his trainers described him, he’s a completely unreasonable man,” McGregor Forever director Gotham Chopra said in a statement to Insider.
“And for that reason, it’s impossible not to look at it and be mesmerized. Don’t look away, because I guarantee you’ll definitely miss something inexplicably wild.”
According to the documentary’s synopsis, the series “will put you in the room with one of the biggest mixed martial arts stars on the planet as he takes on the most important battle of his career.”
