CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS, filmed over the course of 4 years, is a gripping access-all- areas account of McGregor's personal and professional journey from claiming benefits and living in his mum's spare room with his girlfriend to claiming multiple championship belts and 9-figure pay packets. Featuring exclusive interviews, unprecedented access and fight footage, this is the ultimate behind-the- scenes look at a sporting icon and his meteoric rise.
Gavin Fitzgerald's documentary moves almost as fast as its subject. It's a tightly edited masterclass in visceral storytelling; eschewing voice over and heavy handed editorializing, Notorious shows how the Dublin lad become a superstar through work, willpower and wit. McGregor's sins - that the sport he dominates is violent, that he talks loud - remain unforgivable to some, but Notorious wastes no time with begrudgers. It's too busy telling a story with as much drama as a cage fight. Check it out, fight fans.
