Earlier this year Irish fighter Conor McGregor became a dad - needless to say, the kid isn't likely to have a run-of-the-mill upbringing.

The UFC two-weight champion has already described his plan to train his son to fight, even making him do squats at five months old, and Conor has now revealed the details of the outrageous christening ceremony the baby received over the weekend.

Conor McGregor Jr was christened in Dublin in front of a host of family and friends at one of Ireland's most historic castles. Guests were treated to a farm and funfair at the celebration.

The senior McGregor posted a picture of himself with his son and girlfriend Dee Devlin, with the caption: "Mac Land."

The event was held at Luttrellstown Castle with entertainment including fireworks, live music and fire dancers as the evening wore on.

Dating from the early 15th century, the castle is located in Clonsilla on the outskirts of Dublin, Ireland.

Speaking about his parenting techniques last month, Conor told an audience in Scotland: "I have a son now. When he grows up I'm going to put him into sport. I believe sport is the best thing you can do.

"I've already begun training him. He's already leaps and bounds ahead of schedule.

"He's only five months old. He can stand balance on his feet. I have this little method where I have him doing a squat.

"I lie him on my legs. I lift my legs up and I put him in the squat position and then hold his hands and then hold him and he raises himself up in a squat.

"I've been doing little things like that and that's from the bell, from day one. It's like a blank canvas.

"I think I'm going to raise a special, special young boy who's going to go on and achieve great things. I'm very excited about that.

"Like I said, I'm going to put him into training, sport, fighting. I'm not going to push him into fighting. If he wants to fight, that's great. If not, it's his own decision - but he will be skilled in how to fight."
