In an interview with TMZ Sports, Dana White detailed his experience filming the Conor McGregor and Jake Gyllenhaal-starrer ‘Road House’ revealed that he unexpectedly enjoyed filming ‘Road House.’ The 54-year-old claimed that he was particularly impressed with how skillfully the film’s fight sequences were shot.

“You know, I’m one of these guys, I don’t ever like messing with my product man. When people show up for an event, I want the event to go out perfectly without a hitch. I don’t do corny stuff in the middle like putting on concerts… But it was actually very well done. The fight footage… I was blown away by how good the fight footage looked. They did a good job.”

The film is set in the Florida Keys, and Gyllenhaal works as a bouncer at a roadhouse bar. The film features an action-packed ensemble of individuals, including McGregor, who attack the roadhouse throughout.

The film was released late last month, and according to Amazon Prime, 50 million people worldwide have seen McGregor’s acting debut. That now retains the record for the most people watching a movie exclusively available on Amazon.

McGregor recently took to X to praise Amazon Studios and MGM Studios on the success of their films. He captioned the post:

”Congrats to @amazonstudios and @mgmstudios on their @roadhousemovie becoming their most watched movie of all time! 50 million viewers over two weekends. That’s $750m at the box office. In 10 days! Insane! Congrats all the team, it was a pleasure”
