THE Notorious, a documentary tracing the meteoric rise of MMA star Conor McGregor (inset), is to be screened to US audiences.

Fox Sports have picked up the series and plan to screen it on six consecutive nights - a testament to the flamboyant Dubliner's gorwing popularity among mixed martial arts fans.

A film crew followed the star during the build up to his home victory over Diego Brando last year and his Las Vegas clash with Dustin Poirier.

It is expected The Notorious: The Series will screen in the US later this month.

The Dubliner is gearing up for the featherweight title bout in the octagon with Jose Aldo at UFC 189 in July.

Both fighters have been touring recently to promote the hotly-anticipated clash.
