Road House featured the Hollywood debut of UFC superstar Conor McGregor. The MMA community anticipated the release of the film since they saw the trailer. Now that the film is available for streaming, fight fans have responded to how McGregor has performed in the film.

Conor McGregor is one of the antagonists in Road House. He plays a dangerous criminal named Knox, who is hired to combat Jake Gyllenhaal’s character. Gyllenhaal plays a former UFC fighter turned bouncer at a roadhouse in the Florida Keys. McGregor’s trash talk in the UFC translated well into the filmmaking process. One could feel the intensity of the Irishman.

Conor McGregor is the highest-paid fighter in UFC history. He carried that title into his film debut. Conor McGregor’s earnings for his role in the movie are reportedly estimated between $3.5 million and $10 million. This would make him one of the highest-paid debut actors in Hollywood. While the exact figures remain unknown, McGregor has claimed to surpass previous records, potentially earning over $6 million.

Conor McGregor recently completed his promotional duties for the film. Soon, he will likely get back to his training. He is expected to finally make his UFC comeback after over two years of hiatus. Although there were rumors that the UFC had delayed McGregor’s comeback and avoided him, UFC CEO Dana White clarified that they were ready to put McGregor inside the octagon by the end of this year. McGregor will likely fight Michael Chandler, and fans cannot wait to see that fight.
