CineMMA Episode 1: Road House – The Best MMA Movie Ever?

The MMA Fighting movie review crew discusses Conor McGregor‘s acting skills and Jake Gyllenhaal’s portrayal of a fighter in the recently released Road House remake on the inaugural episode of This is CineMMA.

Conor McGregor, a Hollywood sensation now?

Welcome to the first episode of This is CineMMA. Our movie review team at MMA Fighting is diving deep into the recently launched #RoadHouse remake. Or should we say, re-imagining? Or remix? It’s got Jake Gyllenhaal playing a fallen-from-grace #UFC fighter. He’s trying to get his life back on track, working as a bouncer in the sunny Florida Keys.

Join us, Alexander K. Lee, Jed Meshew, and E. Casey Leydon. We’re gonna give you the nitty-gritty of the best fight scenes, the most believable fighters, and the most motivational martial arts quotes. Some folks are even calling it a cinematic gem.

So, how’s McGregor doing as an actor? And Gyllenhaal as a fighter? What about the characters in Road House? How’d they do if they got a UFC call-up?

We’re also gonna tackle where Road House stands in the grand scheme of MMA-related movies. Is it one of the greatest?
