Ebanie Bridges is not only tasting success in the ring, but the IBF bantamweight champion has made prosperity outside the boxing world as well- and two of the most empowering factors for her has been Conor McGregor and OnlyFans.
While her last outing in the ring dates back to December 2022, the Aussie recently made headlines for making a non-boxing appearance in the squared circle, this time along with the MMA icon Conor McGregor, on the eve of Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenius earlier this month.

Even though the appearance was to promote McGregor’s Forged Irish Stout, it was the photos of Bridges and the former UFC double champ, aside from their close interactions ringside that made the ruckus.
In clearing out the buzzwords, Bridges has clarified by stating that she only maintains a professional relationship with “The Notorious” and that people are jumping on the media bandwagon.
“Conor has not given me any specific business advice, but he just supports me,” Bridges told LuckyBlock.com in an exclusive interview. “He always encourages me to keep doing what I’m doing. He says things like ‘you’re taking over’ and has said that kind of stuff to me for over a year. He always supports whatever I’m doing. So f**k the haters.”
Thank God for only fans, because it keeps me going: Ebanie Bridges
Aside from being one of the most famous female boxers in the world, Bridges is also one of the leading content creators on the well known internet content subscription service OnlyFans, from where “Blonde Bomber” herself claimed to have earned $460,000.
“I’m in the top 0.1% of earners on OnlyFans,” Bridges commented on her OnlyFans success, “I haven’t had a paycheck from boxing since December f-ing 2022, so I suppose, thank f*** for OnlyFans, otherwise I’d be working at f***ing McDonald’s or something in order to support myself over here. so thank God for only fans, because it keeps me going… it just helps me with my life, It helps me set up my future. God willing I have children, it helps set up their future.”
Returning to the topic of McGregor, Bridges stated that the UFC star has been a very supportive figure.
“He is so caring and he just wants everyone to be okay. He’s really caring and obviously he’s the life of the party, isn’t he? But while he’s doing all that, he’s definitely thinking of others around him and just making sure everyone’s okay, so that was probably something people don’t see. He’s nice, fun, supportive, and really, really positive,” added Bridges. [H/T Sportskeeda]
