In the footage from the event, Gyllenhaal’s Elwood Dalton loses his shirt and flaunts his impressive body amid cheers from the crowd. “Official weight: 184 and a half for the challenger Elwood Dalton,” the announcer calls. Gyllenhaal is also seen shaking hands with UFC president Dana White.

“I can’t even believe I trained six weeks for this s---. To fight this piece of s---,” Gyllenhaal’s Dalton says to the announcer. “Just give me the belt now. Come on, motherf---er. Let's go.” Before the scenes were shot, McGregor gave a heads up to the audience that they would be shooting a scene for their remake film.
