Matt Damon choosing UFC fight over playing Kavanagh on SNL again?
Award-winning actor Matt Damon hit a home run last week with his impersonation of judge Brett Kavanaugh on “Saturday Night Live,” but it sounds like he is too big of an MMA fan to treat viewers to an encore this weekend.
Damon is a huge UFC fan who has attended numerous fights in the past, and Saturday night’s bout between Connor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the biggest in the sport’s history. TMZ reported on Friday that there’s a big demand for Damon to play Kavanaugh again on “SNL” this weekend, but he has decided to go to Las Vegas for the fight instead.
For those of you who missed Damon’s first go-around as Kavanaugh, here’s what fans will be missing out on:
With all the hype we have already seen surrounding the McGregor-Khabib fight, you can’t blame Damon for wanting to witness it live. His Kavanaugh impression can probably wait another week.
