Jake Gyllenhaal is finally emerging from hiding after making Stan Twitter his number one public enemy during the All Too Well (10 Minute Version) debate—and he’s obviously spent that time getting completely ripped. While filming a scene for a future movie during the UFC 285 event in Las Vegas, the actor can be seen shaving off his shorts and flaunting his slim, muscular physique in a video posted by ESPN MMA that has just gone viral.
Internet users can now see stills from the footage, which has Gyllenhaal flexing and mugging for the camera during the ceremonial weigh-in before facing off against UFC champion Jay Hieron in preparation for a made-up “Dalton vs. Harris” fight that will be featured in the film. Conor McGregor, a contentious UFC fighter, also appeared in the scene and is thought to have been cast as the main antagonist’s henchman.
Gyllenhaal previously portrayed a professional fighter in 2015’s Southpaw. Now, for the remake of Road House, in which he will play a new interpretation of the iconic Patrick Swayze character—a bouncer who finds himself becoming the protector of a community being threatened by corrupt businessmen—Gyllenhaal has transformed his body into that of mixed martial artist Elwood Dalton, complete with the necessary half-sleeve tattoo.
Not that anyone on Twitter was interested in these specifics. As is to be expected, the timeline is a dry desert of desire for Gyllenhaal and his six-pack abs.
