If you’re a Conor McGregor fan in the United States, and you’re hoping to catch the Irishman’s anticipated Conor McGregor: Notorious documentary in theatres, you’re going to need to clear your calendar on Wednesday, November 8. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that’s the only day the film will be showing in US theatres. The reasons for this ‘special’ one-day-only screening have not been shared by Trafalgar Releasing, the UK film distribution company in charge of the film’s release.
The Conor McGregor: Notorious documentary has been assembled with more than four years of footage, which should give fans a very interesting and complete look into the Irishman’s UFC career, which began back in 2013. The film also highlights McGregor’s recent boxing match with undefeated pugilist Floyd Mayweather Jr.
At the moment, McGregor’s future is somewhat nebulous. Though it initially sounded as though he would be returning to the UFC’s Octagon for a trilogy fight with his arch rival Nate Diaz, it now sounds more likely that he defends his UFC lightweight title opposite new UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson. That is, if he doesn’t box the ornery Paulie Malignaggi, who has reportedly reached out to the UFC about a boxing match with the Irishman.
McGregor’s last mixed martial arts bout occured in November of 2016, nearly a year ago, when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez to win the UFC lightweight title. Prior to this title-winning effort, he avenged a March 2016 submission loss to Nate Diaz with an August majority decision win.
