According to McGregor’s spokesperson Karen J. Kessler, fighting will still be the UFC star’s main focus.

“Conor McGregor is very excited to expand his storied career to Hollywood and join with Jake Gyllenhaal in this reimagining of “Road House”, a beloved classic. While fighting remains his top focus, this is the beginning of another successful venture in the McGregor empire. He is eager to get started filming,” Kessler wrote in a recent statement.
