UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIFORNIA - Conor Anthony McGregor born on July 14, 1988 to Tony and Margaret McGregor in Crumlin, Dublin, Republic Of Ireland. McGregor has become the UFC's most accomplished athlete, since stepping into the octagon on April 7, 2013 as a professional mixed martial artist, prior to picking up a welfare check for €180 (roughly $235 USD), and defeating Marcus Brimage in 67 seconds at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, he has grounded himself as the world's biggest pay-per-view draw in mixed martial arts history.
Currently, 29 years of age, and fighting professionally since 2008 in mixed martial arts, with 18 wins by knock out under his belt, and a professional boxing debut to Floyd Mayweather that ended with a loss, but made $55,414,865.79 in ticket sales at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada as confirmed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission; McGregor is, and will be a global icon for many years to come. He has even caught the attention of Oscar De La Hoya, 44, of Golden Boy Promotions, who has been retired for nine years, but lets not forget, won 10 world titles in six different weight classes, and has secretly been training for such an event. Even Manny Pacquiao wants a piece of the action. Undoubtedly, McGregor is a household name.
Headquartered in London, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group, a unit of Universal Pictures, and division of Universal Studios, is releasing CONOR McGREGOR: NOTORIOUS on December 5, 2017 on DVD. The documentary expands from living in his mother's spare room to becoming the first athlete in combat sport history to simultaneously wear two belts. Featuring exclusive interviews, highlights of his lustrous career, his unexpected loss to Nate Diaz, his Las Vegas bout against Floyd "Money" Mayweather, and much more.
