Watch jacked Jake Gyllenhaal brutally KO opponent while filming Roadhouse at UFC 285 as Conor McGregor attends | The Sun
JAKE GYLLENHAAL took part in filming for his upcoming film Roadhouse smack bang in the middle of UFC 285.
The Hollywood superstar filmed a weigh-in scene for the movie shortly after Friday's official weigh-ins for Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane's heavyweight showdown.
And a break during the prelim portion of the card served as the time frame for the Hollywood cameras to make use of the octagon and film a fight scene.
Gyllenhaal took part in a full and authentic UFC walkout and was greeted by rapturous applause as he pretend to make his way to the octagon to fight for the middleweight title.
The champion – former UFC star Jay Hieron – came out to a slew of boos.
It wasn't long before Bruce Buffer was announcing the pair's middleweight showdown, which was, surprisingly, well received.
Gyllenhaal, who plays Dalton in the remake of the classic film – in which he plays an ex-UFC fighter who ends up working as a bouncer in the Florida Keys – got off to a terrible start.
He ate several blows against the octagon fence before he landing thunderous hooks to the body to turn things around.
The champ was badly wobbled and ended up being dropped by a vicious knee.
Gyllenhaal – who will star in the film along with Conor McGregor – rained down blow after blow and the referee tried to pull him off.

But he managed to land a final and unanswered blow – much to the shock of the crowd.
Roadhouse is set to be released later this year, although a date has not yet been announced.
