Conor McGregor shared some footage of his son training alongside him as fans wait for his comeback.
The ‘Notorious’ has not fought since he broke his leg against Dustin Poirier during his loss in 2021. While he has spoken about a comeback in 2023 against Michael Chandler, as of now, there is nothing to indicate that this will happen. The Irishman has not enrolled in USADA, which requires athletes to submit two negative samples over a six-month period. Meanwhile, McGregor has spoken about fighting numerous opponents other than Chandler, including Justin Gaethje, leaving fans none the wiser.

In the meantime, however, McGregor was training in Dublin alongside his six-year-old son, Conor Jr. In the pictures above, McGregor’s son can be seen working the pads with his punches. Despite the fanbase wanting to see McGregor return, they were equally excited to see whether McGregor’s son could follow in the footsteps of his father. After all, McGregor has made history in the UFC by being the first man to hold two titles simultaneously in different weight classes.
