It’s not often that date night includes a mixed martial arts match.

But Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth took in an MMA fight in Melbourne over the weekend, joined by Damon’s wife, Luciana Barroso, and Elsa Pataky, Hemsworth’s better half.

The duo, whose families vacation together, were photographed watching the matches ringside.

“Imagine Thor and Jason Bourne in the octagon,” the official UFC Europe account tweeted, along with a gif of the group.

The night’s main event, Robert Whittaker vs. Kelvin Gastelum, was canceled at the last minute after Whittaker was hospitalized with a hernia.
