In the world of combat sports and Hollywood, the collision of two worlds often leads to intriguing moments. Such was the case when Conor “The Notorious” McGregor and Jake Gyllenhaal teamed up for the remake of the 80s classic film, Road House. The behind-the-scenes footage reveals not only their physical prowess but also the camaraderie that developed during the intense training sessions.

The original Road House, starring Patrick Swayze, became a cult classic known for its gritty action and memorable fight scenes. When news broke of a remake, fans were curious about the casting choices. Enter Conor McGregor, the former UFC champion, and Jake Gyllenhaal, the acclaimed actor. Their collaboration promised a fresh take on the beloved film.

Proper Graft: McGregor’s Signature Phrase

During the training sessions, McGregor’s combat sports background came to the forefront. As he choreographed fight scenes alongside Gyllenhaal, he couldn’t help but inject his unique flair. One phrase stood out: “Proper graft!” McGregor used this term to emphasize hard work, dedication, and relentless effort. It became a rallying cry for both fighters as they prepared for their roles.

Conor McGregor had to Learn the Art of Pulling Punches

For Conor McGregor, transitioning from the octagon to the silver screen presented challenges. In MMA, he delivers full-force blows, aiming for knockouts. But in acting, he had to learn the art of pulling punches—making them look real without causing harm. It was a change he struggled with, but the results speak for themselves.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s commitment to the role was equally impressive. His trainer, Jason Walsh, put him through grueling workouts, including sessions on the vertical climber (VersaClimber). The result? A jacked physique that suited the demands of the film. Gyllenhaal’s dedication mirrored Conor McGregor’s, creating a synergy that elevated their performances.

During filming, McGregor accidentally hit Gyllenhaal in the face. It was a moment of authenticity—an unplanned connection that echoed the film’s fight scenes. Their bond grew stronger as they navigated the challenges of acting, stunts, and choreography. Off-camera, they shared laughs, stories, and mutual respect.
