CONOR MCGREGOR made a shock appearance at the UFC 285 weigh-ins – where he hugged returning Jon Jones.
The weigh-in ceremony for Jones’ long-awaited comeback fight at UFC 285 – in which he will challenge Ciryl Gane for the vacant heavyweight title – was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The pair engaged in a heated duel in front of a noisy crowd.
But fans in attendance went wild when UFC commentator Joe Rogan said: “I’m going to hand the mic over to Conor McGregor.”
Fans about to leave the arena turned their heads as a jacked McGregor took the stage and hugged Jones before shouting, “Las Vegas!”
McGregor said to Jones, “Go ahead boy.”
Former pound-for-pound king Jones replied: “What’s up Conor. Nice to see you baby.”
MMA mad fans were heartbroken as the legends embraced.
And they soon learned they would be part of McGregor’s upcoming film starring Hollywood superstar Jake Gyllenhaal, as the actor would be filming a weigh-in scene for Roadhouse shortly after.
McGregor said: “Who’s ready for tomorrow night?
“We have the biggest fight in Roadhouse history, Harris vs Dalton UFC 222.
“Everyone in this arena, you’re going to be part of my movie that comes out with me and Jake Gyllenhaal.
“A production by Joe Silver, cheer at the weigh-in and let’s go to Las Vegas.”
A jacked Gyllenhaal went to the scales shortly after and showed off his incredible physique before taking on former UFC fighter Jay Hieron – his opponent in the film.
McGregor, 34, is currently in Las Vegas filming season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter alongside future nemesis Michael Chandler.
A date for their clash has yet to be set as McGregor has not yet been reinstated into the USADA testing pool, which he must be in at least six months before he can compete.
