A new documentary about legendary UFC warrior Conor McGregor is heading to Netflix this month – here’s everything we know about the series, including release date and trailer.

Conor McGregor is a legend in the UFC game. The Irish mixed martial artist became Featherweight and Lightweight UFC champion, while he also won Cage Warriors at both weights.

In that time, he’s also headlined the biggest pay-per-view events in the history of the sport, with his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 still holding the record with 2.4 million buys.

He’s colorful inside the ring, and just as big a character outside, qualities which a new Netflix documentary will be spotlighting as he bids to make a comeback.

McGregor Forever release date: When’s it out?

McGregor Forever streams on Netflix on May 17, 2023.

The series consists of four, hour-long episodes, all of which are expected to release that day.

McGregor Forever is directed by Religion of Sports co-founder Gotham Chopra. Chopra, Ameeth Sankaran, Giselle Parets, Audie Attar, Peter Berg and Matt Goldberg are executive producers.
