Conor McGregor has spoken of his joy at having his documentary film Conor McGregor: Notorious premiere in Dublin.

The Crumlin native said people "didn't give a sh*t" about him in his early days as a fighter and he is thrilled at how far he has come.

"Having it in Dublin is the main thing. To have a movie in the Savoy? What other fighter gets this?

"They don't care about fighters. People didn't give a sh*t about me and now I am here. I am honoured and proud," he said.

The UFC star was joined by his partner Dee Devlin and baby son Conor Jnr on the red carpet while his parents Tony and Margaret and sisters Erin and Aoife were also in attendance.

The film charts Conor's rise from a struggling fighter to a UFC champion over the course of four years.

"It's been one hell of a four year journey and long may the success continue," he told independent.ie.

"It took a lot of work to achieve this success and make this film. I hope people take some inspiration from it," he said.
