Conor McGregor’s rise to stardom, from UFC newcomer to the sport’s biggest superstar, is befitting of a Hollywood script. Luckily, cameras have been following McGregor for much of his fighting career, and a documentary detailing his rise will hit theaters in the near future.
Universal Pictures released the first official McGregor movie teaser Monday on Twitter, writing that the documentary flick is coming soon.

On the film website, it reads that footage was filmed over the course of four years and is an “exclusive, all-access account of Conor’s meteoric rise from claiming benefits and living in his parent’s [sic] spare room in Dublin to claiming multiple championship UFC belts and seven figure pay-packets in Las Vegas.” The synopsis promises the “ultimate behind-the-scenes look” at McGregor and his “spectacular rise from the bottom to the very top.”
