Ryan Fitzpatrick has not only been impressive on the football field, but stole the show with his best Connor Conor McGregor impression during a post-game press conference. Fitzpatrick stole Bucs wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s wardrobe. The result was a lot of funny memes.
“I got like two more [questions], because [DeSean] needs his stuff back,” Fitzpatrick said at the press conference per CBS Sports. “I borrowed your stuff, sorry, DeSean.”
Fitzpatrick admitted that the only thing that he owned was the chest hair. Here’s a look at the funniest Fitzpatrick memes.
Fitzpatrick’s Look Inspired a Lot of Conor McGregor Comparisons
The side-by-side photo shows an uncanny resemblance from Fitzpatrick to MMA fighter Conor McGregor. As for the comparisons, Fitzpatrick told Dan Patrick he would take it (via USA Today).
The first time I heard it was last year. We were playing Minnesota, so I was walking around the Mall of America with Garrison Sanborn and Brian Anger and Nick Folk, and somebody came up to me and started talking to me about my fight with Mayweather. And it took me a minute, I didn’t really know what they were talking to, and then when they walked away, I came to the realization that they thought I was Conor McGregor. Which, I think I’m a little bit probably bigger and chubbier than he is, but I’m OK with it I guess.
Fitzpatrick’s Swag Has Increased Since He Entered the League
There are lots of before and after photos featuring Fitzpatrick’s old looks. After 15 years in the league, it looks like Fitzpatrick has gained a bit of confidence. Jackson told TMZ Sports he might dress Fitzpatrick ever week.
DeSean Jackson says Ryan Fitzpatrick looked SO GOOD in his borrowed clothes after Sunday’s game … he’s gonna make it his mission to keep him fresh all season long!!
TMZ Sports spoke with the Bucs star WR after he lit up the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday — a team he takes great pleasure in torching ever since they let him go back in 2014.
“It felt like no other, bro” DeSean said when asked about that 75 yard TD on the first play of the game … “It was like surreal. It was a great feeling.”
