CONOR MCGREGOR IS having a good week.

The Dubliner thrilled a hometown crowd with a first round TKO at the O2 on Saturday night.

Earlier this week, he was pencilled in for a Las Vegas showdown with Dustin Poirier in September. And today McGregor has signed a book deal with Gill & Macmillan Books.

Notorious: My Life in and Out of the Octagon, will be “part memoir, part philosophy in which McGregor reveals the secrets to his incredible work ethic and unshakable belief,” a statement reads.

“We think the world needs something as positive as Conor McGregor’s book” says Conor Nagle, commissioning editor for Gill & Macmillan Books, who acquired the book for an undisclosed sum. “Fans will love to read about Conor’s journey so far, the technicalities of the sport, but more than anything, the sheer self-belief of an incredibly committed man.”

The book will be published in autumn 2015.
