Weekend Update Summer Edition Lampoons Conor McGregor: ‘I Can Still Do a Couple of Kicks, Yeah?’
In just over 48 hours from now, UFC star Conor McGregor is slated to step in a pro boxing ring for the first time against Floyd Mayweather.
But on Thursday night, “Conor McGregor” stopped by the Weekend Update Summer Edition set — where anchor Colin Jost broke some distressing news to the mixed martial artist.
“You better watch out Mayweather!” Alex Moffat — playing McGregor — said. “When you get taste of me punches and kicks you’ll wish you were never born.”
“You can’t kick because it’s boxing, remember?” Jost said.
“Right. Wink,” McGregor said. “I can still do a couple of kicks, yeah?”
“You can’t kick at all,” Jost replied.
Eventually, “McGregor” reached the same conclusion that boxing experts have — pretty much across the board.
“Okay, well, then I am going to lose,” he said.
