SNL Weekend Update Summer Edition: McGregor, Kaepernick & Robert Lee

|

Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update: Summer Edition” was back at it again on Thursday night, this time tackling a number of headlines from the sports world.

In one segment, Alex Moffat swung by the set to deliver his Conor McGregor impression ahead of Saturday night’s highly-anticipated pay-per-view matchup with Floyd Mayweather at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Moffat was rocking a fur coat and flash change to take his Conor McGregor impression to the next level.

We also got an appearance from Pete Davidson, who discussed Colin Kaepernick, the recent protests outside of NFL headquarters and exactly why the free agent quarterback has yet to secure a new job in the league.

And of course, you knew SNL would tackle the absurd ESPN “controversy” that come to light when an announcer named Robert Lee was reassigned and moved from a Virginia football game in the midst of the terror in Charlottesville earlier this month.

Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che also touched on the leaked nude photos of Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn.

Weekend Update: Summer Edition may just be one of the greatest things we’ve been blessed with this summer.
