UFC sensation Conor McGregor is gearing up for what will be the defining moment of his fighting career in May.
The Irishman’s meteoric rise through the mixed martial arts (MMA) ranks has saw him grab all the headlines with his antics both in and outside of the octagon.
Up until now McGregor has talked the talk and managed to back it up in the ring. But his title bout with World Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo in Vegas this year will really determined whether he can walk the walk.
With all the showmanship and bravado that oozes from the 26-year-old Dubliner, it’s difficult to tell what’s real and what’s just an act for the cameras.
But tonight, Irish broadcasters RTE will air the first of a six-part series featuring Notorious himself in a fly-on-the-wall documentary. The series will detail the gruelling training sessions and his family life throughout his seemingly unstoppable rise to UFC stardom.
And in a brief preview of what’s to come in the documentary (as per Sunday World), McGregor said: “I’ve lost my mind doing this. Like Vincent van Gogh. He dedicated his life to his art and lost his mind in the process. That’s happened to me. But f**k it.
