It’s not too late to start promoting the UFC featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Connor McGregor as the spiritual sequel to the 1992 sports buddy comedy film ‘White Men Can’t Jump”. The rough draft for the “White Men Can’t Jump 2” puts Aldo and McGregor on the beaches of California to promote their UFC 189 tussle. The champ calls McGregor a clown, the challenger defames the entire nation of Brazil in the name of fight promotion.
Typical fight game theatrics with an Irish lighting rod twist.
Aldo sets McGregor off with the line “You can put a cat in an oven, but that don’t make it a biscuit.” McGregor has no idea what the Brazilian means but he will argue until he’s blue in the face for his right not to understand the saying. Infuriated McGregor bets his 145 pound title shot against Aldo that he can jump on a slightly raised wooden beam in less than two attempts.
The results of McGregor and Aldo’s bet are below. McGregor can’t jump, he can’t jump at all. Will somebody please give McGregor a boost so he can yell wild obscenities at Aldo from a barely above the ground perch?
