UFC star Conor McGregor is in the headlines after being spotted with Ebanie Bridges. On May 20, Katie Taylor took on Chantelle Cameron for the undisputed super-lightweight crown. Although Katie delivered a great performance, Chantelle won the bout via a majority decision. Despite the loss, Conor was extremely proud of his fellow Irish boxer and showed his support from the ringside.
However, after the event’s culmination, the focus quickly shifted from the boxing match to Conor’s private life. At the fight, Conor was pictured with Ebanie Bridges. Ebanie took to her social media to post images with Conor where the two could be seen having a fun time. It caused a stir amongst the fanbase as many wondered who Ebanie really was and how she became so close to Conor. Let’s find out!
Who is Ebanie Bridges aka the Blonde Bomber?
While many may not know this, Ebanie Bridges is a professional boxer herself. She started her boxing career in February 2019 against Mahiecka Pareno. She currently possesses a boxing record of 9-1. Ebanie Bridges has 4 KOs and holds the IBF female bantamweight belt. Her only career loss came against Shannon Courtenay and the bout was contested for the WBA bantamweight belt.
Born on September 22, 1986. Ebanie Bridges is an Australian resident who hails from Sydney. As an amateur, Bridges won the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Australasian Golden Gloves. However, before turning her attention to boxing, Ebanie also competed in bodybuilding as well. While her bodybuilding days may be behind her, Bridges is still going strong inside the squared circle.
She also has a very interesting nickname as well! On her social media platforms, Ebanie goes by “The Blonde Bomber.” It is certainly inspired by the former WBC heavyweight champ, Deontay Wilder. Wilder has earned the nickname of the “Bronze Bomber” during his illustrious career.
So one can imagine where Bridges got the idea for her nickname. It suits her perfectly due to her blonde hair and explosive fight style. Aside from boxing, Bridges also has an OnlyFans account similar to former UFC fighter, Paige VanZant.
Conor McGregor was accused of cheating on Dee Devline with Ebanie Bridges
After spotting Conor McGregor with Ebanie Bridges, some pointed out the chemistry between the two. Judging by the picture, Conor and Ebanie seemed to make a good couple.
But, there is one thing that will prevent the two from dating and the reason is Dee Devlin. Conor has been together with Dee since 2008 and share a very strong bond. Hence, seeing Conor and Ebanie together, made former UFC fighter Ben Askren question Dee’s relationship with McGregor.
She’s trying to get Connor divorced. https://t.co/KQcr9QMp24

Ben wrote, “She’s trying to get Connor divorced.” Askren’s comments sparked cheating rumors as fans speculated the nature of Conor’s relationship with Dee.
Here are some fan reactions on the matter
Conor would have been divorced years ago if infidelity would have caused it

I’m sure Conor has an understanding with Dee and he isn’t married.

I think she’s aware of his weakness and about to drop down for the double leg.

Not the first time he’s cheated tbf. She’s probably used to it now.

Despite the rumor mill churning, Conor and Dee are in a very stable and loving relationship. While they are not married as Ben claimed, they do have three children together, Conor Jr, Croia, and Rian McGregor. They even got engaged to each other in 2020 and plan on having an “extravagant” wedding down the line.
So fans who are afraid of McGregor leaving Dee, that does not appear to be the case. While there were prior accusations of Conor cheating on Dee, the two have stayed together through thick and thin. So what are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments down below.
