Conor McGregor’s story is befitting a movie script, so it only makes sense to turn it into a film.

Universal Pictures released the first official McGregor movie teaser Monday on Twitter, writing that the documentary flick is coming soon.

On the film website, it reads that footage was filmed over the course of four years and is an “exclusive, all-access account of Conor’s meteoric rise from claiming benefits and living in his parent’s [sic] spare room in Dublin to claiming multiple championship UFC belts and seven figure pay-packets in Las Vegas.” The synopsis promises the “ultimate behind-the-scenes look” at McGregor and his “spectacular rise from the bottom to the very top.”

McGregor has won the UFC featherweight and lightweight titles in just four years with the promotion. The MMA star will cross over into boxing for a mega fight with Floyd Mayweather, that sport’s biggest star, on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas.
