The teaser trailer of the upcoming Netflix documentary McGregor Forever shows the Irish fighter suffering a severe injury.
The show, which arrives on May 17th, follows the former UFC champion, Conor McGregor, on his journey back to fighting after suffering a leg break in 2021. The Dubliner appeared to snap his ankle in the trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. UFC President Dana White later revealed that the injury was sustained to McGregor’s lower tibia.
The new, one-minute trailer shows the accident, with the sound of the break audible. McGregor then reflects on it while undergoing treatment. The fighter is asked if he believes the incident to be a “career-ender” to which he replies: “I thought it was over as well. I thought it was over as well.”
He continues: “Part of me was thinking, ‘Jesus imagine if it was just taken from me like that.’ I would just go into a different mode. I would be a different person.”
“I was a bit scared to be honest with you. But it’s McGregor Forever. That’s it isn’t it?”, he adds, “And don’t you forget it.”
Conor McGregor is also set to feature in the remake of the 1989 action flick Road House. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal as an ex-UFC fighter who becomes a bouncer at a bar in Florida Keys.
