Marshall Teague questions Conor McGregor's fighting scenes in new Road House film UFC

Star of the original Roadhouse, Marshal Teague, discusses Conbor McGregor’s role in the upcoming remake of the 1989 classic. 

The first footage of Conor McGregor’s starring role in the new film was just released in a form of a short trailer in which the Irishman begins a bar brawl before headbutting co-star Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is set to premiere on March 8, then will be available on March 21 via Prime Video.

It will be McGregor’s big screen debut, but by the looks of it the 35-year-old seems perfectly suited this role.

“Jake Gyllenhaal is a fantastic actor and Conor McGregor is an incredible fighter. I mean his acting career I don’t know that much about, but as far as his fighting is concerned, he’s top of the list,” Teague said of the Road House remake.

“I got to tell you I watched it in the fight and the one thing I found humorous was the sound of the hits in the fight you know they’re just, I don’t know, they’re a little off to me. But that’s okay, I think. As far as his ability to play the character as the chief bad guy I think he’ll do fine with that,” Teague continued on Road House. “He’s done it all through his career so I think he has a lead on that.” (H/T TMZ)
