MMA fans went wild as Hollywood superstar Jake Gyllenhaal filmed a scene for his upcoming movie after the UFC 285 weigh-ins.
Fans in attendance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena were about to head out to their evening after Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane wrapped up their UFC 285 showdown.
But they soon turned around as UFC commentator Joe Rogan shouted: “I’m going to hand the mic over to Conor McGregor.”
After taking the stage and hugging Jones, who will fight for the heavyweight title early Sunday morning, McGregor roared, “Las Vegas!”
He then announced that everyone in attendance would be part of his upcoming film Roadhouse starring Gyllenhaal.
He asked, “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 Gyllenhall.
“A production by Joe Silver, cheer at the weigh-in and let’s go to Las Vegas.”
In the Roadhouse remake, Gyllenhaal plays a former UFC fighter who ends up working as a bouncer in the Florida Keys.

Shortly after McGregor left the stage, Gyllenhaal, who plays Dalton, performed a full UFC weigh-in routine in front of a raucous crowd.
Gyllenhaal, who played middleweight title challenger, looked in incredible shape as he stepped on the scales with a physique chiseled to the bone.
Former UFC fighter Jay Hieron – who served as the defending champion – came out to a chorus of boos and immediately kicked Gyllenhaal in the face.
And he ended up slapping Hieron before being restrained by security guards.
In his final pre-fight interview, he said, “I can’t believe I trained for this shit for six weeks. For that shit.
“Now just give me the belt. Come on motherf***er. Let’s go!!”
Roadhouse is set to be released later this year, although a date has not yet been announced.
