While McGregor was cageside to watch Jon Jones claim the heavyweight title after choking out Ciryl Gane in his UFC comeback.

Gyllenhaal, 42, took part in a full and authentic UFC walkout and was greeted by rapturous applause as he pretended to make his way to the octagon to fight for the middleweight title.

The Hollywood actor, who plays Dalton in the remake of the classic film, came up against former UFC star Jay Hieron, who was playing The Champion.

And after avoiding some jabs early doors, he ate several blows against the octagon fence before landing thunderous hooks to the body to turn things around.

The champ was badly wobbled and ended up being dropped by a vicious knee.

After his foray in the octagon Gyllenhaal bumped into McGregor, and the pair hugged and laughed with one another.

The Notorious also has a role in Roadhouse and he was spotted roaring on from the front row in Paradise, Nevada.

McGregor donned his coaching cap as he gave instructions to lightweight Jalin Turner during his main card clash with Mateusz Gamrot.


The UFC superstar, 34, is currently in Las Vegas coaching season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter opposite Michael Chandler.

The pair are set to throw down after the fight, although a date for the bout hasn’t been finalised as McGregor has yet to re-enter the USADA testing pool.
