Netflix Documentary About Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Is Coming Out 'Soon'

Just in case you haven't had enough Conor McGregor in the past few days, it looks as if he might be about to be the subject of a brand-new Netflix documentary.

The show will cover the build up to his hugely lucrative and hyped up crossover fight against boxer Floyd Mayweather last year.

The three-part documentary will be available on the streaming platform 'soon' if Conor's coach John Kavanaugh is to be believed.

Kavanaugh was chatting with podcast and UFC ring interviewer Joe Rogan on his podcast dedicated to the world of MMA. He was appearing to discuss McGregor's fight against Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 this past weekend.

More interesting than the fight was the debacle that developed afterwards when Khabib jumped from the ring to get at another of Conor's coaches, Dillon Danis.

'The Notorious' McGregor was then attacked in the ring by two more of Khabib's chums. Basically, it all went off and nobody came out of it smelling of roses.

Khabib won the actual fight, by the way, although that seems like somewhat of an irrelevance given what transpired second later.

Kavanaugh told Rogan: "I think there's something being released on Netflix soon.

"A documentary based around that fight, and it will have all the rounds.

"As far as I'm aware, I did an interview for it recently.

"It's a three-part documentary that's going to be on Netflix soon, so people will be able to make up their own minds about it."

As well as the fight and the build-up, fans will be keen to see if the documentary cameras captured a now infamous sparring session between Conor and American boxer Paulie Malignaggi.

Footage appeared to show that Malignaggi had been knocked down during the session by McGregor, although the 37-year-old maintains that he was pushed rather than punched to the floor.

Malignaggi said: "He did well for five rounds but from six on he became more hit-able. I'm trash talking all the time, telling him he can't hang with me, he's not used to these body shots.

"He stopped talking because he wanted to save his energy. He pushed me down during one of his worst rounds because he needed a break."

McGregor eventually lost the fight against Mayweather, who extended his unbeaten professional career to 50 fights.

However, for a large part of the fight McGregor looked OK, given that he'd never boxed professionally before.

The Khabib fight was his first fight back in the UFC octagon since that, and this loss throws some uncertainty on to what the 30-year-old Irishman's next move will be.
