In a surprising move from the octagon to the silver screen, Conor McGregor is set to make his major movie debut in the upcoming Road House remake. The first trailer for the film showcases the UFC superstar prominently, engaging in a fierce showdown with the movie's protagonist, "Dalton," played by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.

Road House, a modern rendition of the beloved 1989 action film starring Patrick Swayze, features Gyllenhaal as a former UFC fighter who finds himself working as a bouncer in the Florida Keys after facing a downturn in his life. McGregor steps into the role of the antagonist, portraying a menacing heavy employed by a villainous real estate tycoon. The plot unfolds as Gyllenhaal's character must protect his place of employment from being replaced by a resort, setting the stage for intense confrontations between the two fighters.
