WATCH: Trailer for new Conor McGregor movie – Notorious

It was confirmed yesterday that major film company Universal are in the process of producing a movie about the life of Dublin light middleweight Conor McGregor.

Directed by Gavin Fitzgerald, ‘Conor McGregor: Notorious’ is described as being an “exclusive, all-access account of Conor’s meteoric rise from claiming benefits and living in his parent’s spare room in Dublin to claiming multiple championship UFC belts and seven figure pay-packets in Las Vegas.”

“Featuring unprecedented access, never before seen moments and explosive fight footage, this is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at a sporting icon and his spectacular rise from the bottom to the very top.”

A release date for the film has not been announced, however it is thought that it will be in cinemas relatively soon to coincide with the UFC lightweight champion’s professional boxing debut next month against five-weight champ Floyd Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday August 26th.

Universal released a short teaser trailer for the upcoming film last night
