McGregor Passed On Road House Sequel Over Scheduling Concerns

Conor McGregor says he could not commit to a Road House sequel after failing to receive scheduling assurances.

McGregor starred in the first film alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. The Notorious was praised for his humility on set, and his acting received rave reviews. The film broke Amazon Prime streaming records, with 50 million people viewing it globally within the first two weeks. Gyllenhaal has already agreed to appear in the sequel, but nothing has been said about McGregor.

The Irishman’s focus is on his upcoming fight with Michael Chandler on June 29 at UFC 303. It is McGregor’s first fight since losing and breaking his leg to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in 2021.McGregor is targeting a possible two more fights this year, naming Nate Diaz as one of those for a bout at The Sphere in Las Vegas. Given the uncertainty around the filming schedule, McGregor could not commit.

They’re at the table, they wanted me to go to New York City for some sort of mega announcement with me and Gyllenhaal and this, that and the other and they were coming forward and I was like look, I don’t, I’m training, I’m focused on the fight, I don’t know whether I’m going to do it again and I appreciate the offer and they asked and I just kind of left it on ice at the minute and then they went ahead and announced the sequel, which I’m very excited about, I’m very happy for everyone involved.

“When will it be? What time? There’s loads of things that weren’t getting answered and I was like I don’t know, I just can’t commit so I have June 29 and man, I’m going on a f****** tear. God willing, I’m going on a tear here [in the UFC],” McGregor said
