    He started things off at the weigh-in, where he looked completely shredded while sizing up his competitor, former UFC fighter Jay Hieron.

    Things even got a little brutal when Jake continued to pack a punch despite his opponent being unconscious — which is all apparently a part of the film's plot.

    In the original Road House flick, the film's main character had a mysterious past that included killing a person, and it seems like that may carry over to the remake, considering the aggression Jake's putting into the role.

    Following the faux match, Jake stuck around to catch all of the real fighting along with his costar Conor McGregor.
