The documentary chronicles McGregor’s 2021, dubbed “one of the most demanding years of his career,” and follows the fighter as he prepares for two fights in a 12-month period, both of which came against mixed martial artist and former Interim UFC Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier.
“Conor is unlike anyone I’ve ever collaborated with. As one of his trainers described him, he’s an entirely unreasonable man,” said director Gotham Chopra in a statement. “And for that reason, he’s impossible not to watch and be fascinated by. Don’t look away, because I guarantee you, you will definitely miss something inexplicably wild.”
