Conor McGregor shares brilliant video of family workout featuring Conor Jr. and dad Tony

CONOR MCGREGOR has been putting his son, Conor Jr, through his paces in the boxing gym and from the looks of things he's a chip off the old block.

Fighting skills evidently run in the family with dad Tony also back in the gym and giving fans an idea where McGregor's dedication to the sport of boxing and UFC first came from.

The Notorious is currently waiting to discover his fate following the post-fight brawl that saw him and opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov suspended from the UFC.

In the meantime, he's been keeping busy in the gym and has brought the family along to keep him company.

Taking to Instagram, the Irishman shared a video showing him working on his striking technique.

The camera soon turns to reveal Conor Jr punching another bag while his grandfather Tony is also shown working on his fighting skills.

Just 18 months old, Conor Jr's efforts have attracted plenty of praise from fans online with one describing their "heart is melting" at his efforts.

McGregor's 59-year-old dad also puts in a good shift as part of a clip showcasing McGregor's softer side.

"You're never too young to start, and you're never too old to learn," McGregor aptly captions the video, which has already garnered over 9 million views online.

The session is likely to have provided a welcome distraction for McGregor.

The Irishman was recently hit with a six-month disqualification from driving while his UFC future hangs in the balance with some suggesting he could be banned for life from the sport after what happened against Nurmagomedov.

He's still well on course for a very merry Christmas though having already seen his Proper No 12 whiskey sell out in the space of just a few short weeks.

Fans have even resorted to buying empty bottles of the spirit on eBay - sometimes for more than the seller originally paid for a full one.
