Former UFC two-weight champion McGregor will play the role of Knox, the nemesis of Gyllenhaal's character Dalton in the movie.

Upon the release of the trailer, McGregor took to X to write: "Fighting, acting, there's nothing this Mac can't do!

"Here's the trailer featuring my brother, Jake Gyllenhaal, and me going toe-to-toe in the wildest action movie ever – Road House! My acting debut is gonna leave a mark! Long live Knox!"

In a previous post on X, he wrote: "I'm the highest-paid first-time actor of all time. Add that to the rest of my accolades."

McGregor is known for his wide range of tattoos, including having his surname inked across his stomach.

Fans spotted that the tattoo had been altered by CGI to instead read ‘Knox Knox Knox’ – the name of his character in the movie.

In the film, Gyllenhaal plays a retired UFC fighter who later becomes a bouncer at an unruly bar in Florida.

The Hollywood A-lister made a surprise appearance at UFC 285, filming scenes inside the octagon between actual fights on the Jon Jones vs Ciryl Gane undercard.
