Has anyone ever gone on a faster ride to the top than Conor McGregor?

As the man said himself, four years ago, he was fighting in front of five hundred people. Now, in just over a month, his net worth will skyrocket to over $100,000,000 for what he calls ‘half a fight.’

And despite the fact that he’s just 29-years-old, a feature film about his life is already being developed.

Coming Soon – The official story of the unstoppable rise of @thenotoriousMMA Conor McGregor. Happy birthday to the champ champ!

Universal Studios announced Friday it is producing a documentary about UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor titled Notorious. On Monday, McGregor teased the release with a post on Instagram:

Here is another power move for you to get excited about. Happy Monday.

With the tagline, “If you want it all, you have to fight for it,” the film figures to track McGregor’s rise to UFC superstardom after he collected $235 welfare checks in Ireland before taking his first professional fight.

Now McGregor is staring down one of the most lucrative paydays in combat sports history as he prepares for an Aug. 26 boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Whether or not this is a major feature film or a B-movie straight to DVD is yet to be seen. However, knowing McGregor will be involved, it will likely be must-watch.
