Fans have even joked that Conor Jr could already beat YouTuber Jake Paul in a fight.

McGregor shared a video of him training his son on social media.

In the clip, Conor Jr can be seen practicing punch combinations and dodging shots.

His dad also explains moves and encourages his young son during the touching video before helping him set up his footwork.

The former UFC double champion wrote alongside the video: “Everyday better. If I am tasty shots my son is gorgeous shots.

“Conor McGregor Junior your shots are just gorgeous to watch! If you wish to do it, you will do it easily.”

McGregor’s fans were equally impressed by his son’s skills, with one commenting: “I’d put 1k on him beating Jake Paul by the time he’s 8.”

Another joked: “This kid beats Jake Paul.”

A third fan also added: “Looks like a natural little fella.”

Meanwhile, one more wrote: “His left hook is as savage as his dad’s.”

The Irish mixed martial artist is known for his trademark left hook, whilst 19 of his 22 wins have come via knockout.

McGregor himself has been showing off footage from the gym recently as he nears a return to the octagon.

He has not fought for over two years after breaking his tibia in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021.

His return is expected to be against Michael Chandler, with the pair appearing as coaches on the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Despite McGregor teasing fans that he could face a different opponent, UFC president Dana White has confirmed his comeback will be against Chandler.

The 35-year-old has also called out Paul, with the pair hinting at a boxing bout in the future.

However, Paul snubbed the idea after beating McGregor’s former foe Nate Diaz via unanimous decision on Saturday.

A trilogy bout between McGregor and Diaz could also be on the cards, with both fighters open to the idea.
