Comedy Central’s Key & Peele is quite possibly the best written sketch comedy show still on TV at the moment. Big claim, I know. But not only do Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele (both MADtv alums) make a great comedy duo, but their sketches do an amazing job at lampooning everything from pop culture fads to everyday scenarios. One example of the former is their “Ultimate Fighting Match Preview” sketch. In their parody of UFC’s hype promos, fighter Paulo Odbelis (played by Key) takes the trash talking a little too seriously. Not to spoil anything, but let’s just say that things don’t end well for fighter Derek Johnson (played by Peele). Watch for yourself.
