Ebanie Bridges shares what was said with Conor McGregor when boxers cuddled
Fight fans went wild after pictures emerged of a recent face-off between Ebanie Bridges and Conor McGregor in Dublin.
As two of the most popular and entertaining figures in combat sports, spectators were desperate to know what was said between the pair. Perhaps there were words traded over a collaboration between the pair, some advice on McGregor's next boxing endeavour, or simply a chat about his peculiar hand placement.
Bridges, 36, previously addressed the Irishman's wandering mitt but has now lifted the lid on a different side of their interaction. And despite McGregor's 'wild child' reputation, the Dubliner had nothing but kind words for his fellow fighter.

Australian Bridges uploaded photo to her Instagram story showing her and McGregor looking at one another as they shared an embrace.
After being asked by a follower what McGregor told her ringside before Katie Taylor's recent loss to Chantelle Cameron, Bridges replied: "That I'm mega and he is a fan."
The IBF bantamweight world champion was clearly chuffed with the exchange as she adorned the caption with a proud emoji. And one can understand why given the gravitas McGregor holds in their industry.

Fans far and wide wondered what McGregor's long-term partner, Dee Devlin, would think of him getting up close and personal with Bridges. When one follower commented it looked like The Notorious was 'manhandling her in every picture', Bridges responded that it "felt like he was ngl [not going to lie], lol [laughing out loud]."
While The Blonde Bomber is currently without a planned opponent, McGregor is expected to make his return to the UFC after more than two years away later in 2023. The Crumlin native is set to coach opposite lightweight Michael Chandler in the return of The Ultimate Fighter, with a bout between the pair slated for its conclusion.
After the pair met face-to-face on camera, McGregor was seen saying their fight would take place at the middleweight limit of 185 pounds. Chandler, 37, was seemingly up for the challenge, despite never fighting above 165 pounds in his career to date.
The comeback appears to be that much closer after McGregor said he's back in USADA's drug-testing pool, requiring six months of results before he can be eligible to fight in the UFC.
