Each episode will be roughly an hour long and will follow the aftermath of McGregor’s leg injury and his recovery as he “embarks on the most important point of his career.” The first look teaser for McGregor Forever kicks off with Mr. Notorious himself, who can be seen resting in a hospital bed after sustaining serious injuries, which included a broken leg during his UFC 264 defeat to Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

We hear McGregor saying, “I thought it was over as well.” He then further adds, “That’s why I flipped into a different mode. Now it was the adrenaline as well and I know I would have come down but part of me was thinking, ‘Jesus, imagine if it was taken from me like that.’ I would be a different person and it was a bit scary, to be honest with you. But like a stone, it’s McGregor forever. That’s it. It’s done. It’s McGregor forever and don’t you forget it.” To hype up the docuseries’ launch, the Irish athlete even uploaded the trailer to his Instagram page with the caption, “The only place to hear my true story, which is just getting started!”

The docu-series is directed by Religion of Sports co-founder Gotham Chopra, who also acts as the executive producer for the project. Besides Chopra, Ameeth Sankaran, Giselle Parets, Audie Attar, Peter Berg and Matt Goldberg serve as executive producers on the series as well. According to the official synopsis, “In 2021, Conor McGregor faced one of the most demanding years of his career. Three fights in twelve months with the eyes of the world watching. This series will put you in the room with one of the greatest mixed martial arts stars on the planet as he takes on the most important battle of his career. Now, as the superstar who put the sport on the map prepares for his return to the octagon, you get a behind the scenes look at how Conor got here and why he’s still the driving force in the UFC.”

Gotham Chopra, co-director and co-founder of Religion of Sports, said, “Conor is unlike anyone I’ve ever collaborated with. As one of his trainers described him, he’s an entirely unreasonable man. And for that reason, he’s impossible not to watch and be fascinated by. Don’t look away, because I guarantee you, you will definitely miss something inexplicably wild.” So get ready to see the unseen when McGregor Forever lands exclusively on Netflix on May 17.
