UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort recently told Brazilian outlet Globo that his nine year-old son David has begun training. "The Phenom" also reportedly went ahead and released video of his little guy doing some boxing sparring.

In the video above, mini-Belfort takes on a larger boy and doesn't appear shy about throwing heat at all. In fact, at several points, David actually does a 1-2, walk-down combination that his dad made famous years ago in his KO over Wanderlei Silva.

With the elder Belfort's future up in the air since he's not sanctioned by Nevada to fight, watching this "Lil Phenom" might be your last chance to see a Belfort fight in awhile. 

So, enjoy. In all seriousness, these two kids show a lot of bravery and it's cool to see a future hall of famer's kid already learning how to fight.

Plus, David's already got a great fighter nickname - "Guacamole." Dig it.
