Boxing Champ Goes into Business with UFC Legend
Australian boxer Ebanie Bridges is already making plans for retirement as she enters into a business partnership with Conor McGregor. The IBF bantamweight champion is set to defend her title against Miyo Yoshida in San Francisco on Saturday. Bridges has teamed up with McGregor's Forged Irish Stout, becoming the face of the brand and forming a close collaboration with the UFC star.
A Mutual Beneficial Partnership
Bridges expressed her excitement about the partnership, stating that she can learn a lot from McGregor's business ventures and finds his success inspiring. She believes that they work well together and that their collaboration will continue for the remainder of her career. Bridges sees herself as a great asset to McGregor's brand, while he brings value to her own brand as well.
Upcoming Fights for Bridges and McGregor
Bridges was originally scheduled to face Avril Mathie in what she jokingly referred to as the "Battle of the Boobs," but Mathie pulled out of the fight. On the other hand, McGregor has been recovering from a leg injury he sustained in July 2021 during his fight against Dustin Poirier. However, he is now preparing for a comeback fight against Michael Chandler next year. Bridges has seen clips of McGregor training and believes he is dedicated to his comeback.
Ebanie Bridges and Conor McGregor's partnership marks an interesting collaboration between two prominent figures in the world of combat sports. As Bridges continues her boxing career, she will also be focusing on her business ventures with McGregor, setting the stage for an exciting future.
