Conor McGregor, the former two-weight UFC champion, is undoubtedly one of the greatest combat sports athletes in the world. The 34-year-old Irish star is also a father of three children, Conor Jack McGregor Jr., Croia McGregor, and Rian McGregor. ‘The Notorious’ has a legacy in the sport and, like every father, even McGregor wants his children to carry that forward.

In order to do that, the former lightweight champion always keeps his children close even while training in the gym. He is often seen sharing combat advice and engages in light sparring with his kids. The Irish star also posts about it on social media.

Similarly, some of McGregor’s fan pages posted pictures of Conor Jack McGregor Jr.’s training session with his father on Instagram. In one post, McGregor is performing push-ups with McGregor Jr., while in the other post McGregor Jr. is sporting a blue color wrestling singlet with Ireland on it.

Although the picture might appear amusing to many people, some weren’t happy about it. They immediately called out, ‘The Notorious’ in the comments section and even took a dig at his wrestling.

Here are some of the comments from displeased fans:

“Tell him take that singlet off we both know that family don’t grapple lol.”

“Is he teaching him how to tap?”

“Lil wrestlers.”

When will Conor McGregor return to fighting?

‘The Notorious’ is currently inactive ever since he faced a gruesome injury in his previous fight last year. However, the self-proclaimed face of the game has recovered from the injury.
