Ebanie Bridges, the Australian IBF world bantamweight champion, recently shed light on her relationship with UFC
star Conor McGregor. The duo has been the talk of the town, especially after they were spotted together at London's O2, witnessing Anthony Joshua's
knockout victory over Robert Helenius.
Is Conor McGregor cheating on his wife?
Bridges and McGregor first connected online about a year ago. Their recent appearance together was not just a casual outing; it was a strategic move. McGregor leveraged Bridges' presence to promote his brand, "Forged Irish Stout," during AJ's Fight. The beverage even made a notable appearance when Joshua celebrated with it post his win against the Finnish boxer.
However, their public appearance led to a whirlwind of speculations and criticisms. Many accused Bridges of using McGregor's fame for publicity, pointing fingers at her choice of attire. Addressing the critics, Bridges clarified, "Connor and I have been friends for a while. He's been a great supporter of my boxing journey. We've been in touch online for over a year." She further revealed that McGregor proposed a partnership, saying, "Do you want to be part of the team and partner up with me?"
The duo has now officially teamed up to promote McGregor's "Forged Irish Stout." Their partnership signifies a blend of boxing and MMA worlds, promising exciting collaborations in the future.
