Everything you need to know about 'McGregor Forever' a new documentary about Conor McGregor on Netflix.
Late Monday night Conor McGregor revealed a teaser for an upcoming documentary that has MMA fans in a tailspin. The series, which is set for Netflix on May 17, will feature McGregor's road to recovery after suffering a brutal injury during his fight with Dustin Poirier.
In the documentary, titled 'McGregor Forever' we see the former champion in a hospital room lamenting about the moment he thought his career was over.
"I thought it was over as well, that’s why I flipped into a different mode," McGregor says of his now-controversial post-fight interview while sitting on the canvas of the Octagon. "Now, it was the adrenaline as well and I know it would’ve calmed down and part of me is thinking 'Jesus, imagine it was just taken from me like that. I would be a different person and it was a bit scary, to be honest. But, it’s McGregor forever. That’s it. It’s done. It’s McGregor forever and don’t you forget it."

“Conor is unlike anyone I’ve ever collaborated with.

Don’t look away, because I guarantee you, you will definitely miss something inexplicably wild."
