Conor McGregor latest news: UFC star’s dad follows son into ring as he shows off boxing skills

CONOR MCGREGOR’S father has provided a glimpse of where his son gets his fighting spirit.

Notorious, who suffered a fourth-round submission defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 on a chaotic night, is arguably the world’s most-famous fighter.

But the Irishman’s family seemed determined to show they have dusted themselves off from that setback and are ready to go again.

And this time it could be dad Tony McGregor leading the way.

The Octagon star’s old man took to Instagram to showcase his punching abilities as he followed his child’s steps into the boxing ring.

And he looked pretty nifty despite being suited up and wearing shades as he laid into the pads at The Headon Boxing Academy in Dublin.

Conor became a worldwide name for his performances in MMA and soon became the headline attraction in UFC.

But in August 2017 he secured a lucrative fight of a different kind as he fought the legendary Floyd Mayweather in a blockbuster boxing showdown.

Unfortunately he was not able to shock the planet as he suffered as a tenth round stoppage loss to Money.

However, the £100m plus earnings will have done plenty to soften the blow.

Meanwhile, Nurmagomedov has turned down a mega £11.38million offer to have a rematch with McGregor.

The Russian lightweight champ will instead line up one final scrap against American Tony Ferguson next year, says his uncle.

Nurmagomedov pocketed £1.51m for his fight with Notorious on October 6 which has been withheld after sparking a mass brawl after his win.

The bad blood between the duo has caused rumours of a rematch after a record 2.4million subscribers in America purchased the fight on pay-per-view.

But Khabib’s uncle, Alex, said there is no interest in fighting McGregor again and told him to “get in line.”
