Ebanie Bridges has offered a suggestion to Conor McGregor, urging him to consider joining OnlyFans as a means to enhance his connection with his fanbase.
Having achieved great success with her own thriving OnlyFans account, the IBF bantamweight world champion, has become an advocate for celebrities and athletes embracing the platform to engage with their supporters.
Boxing figures like Derek Chisora and Mikaela Mayer have taken a cue from Bridges and joined OnlyFans, recognizing that the platform extends beyond adult content. It offers an opportunity to share exclusive behind-the-scenes training footage and other engaging content.
"He [Conor] might have some ideas of doing it [OnlyFans]," Bridges told OnlyAccounts.io.
"I do give a lot of people the idea though of joining OnlyFans – especially women as some people look down on it as a bad thing.
"But it’s not, it’s exclusive content from athletes and celebrities – it doesn’t need to be sex and porn as it’s not like that.
"I’m not a blogger or Instagram a lot by telling people all the time what I’m doing, but on my OnlyFans, I do.
"So all the fans know what I’m up to – at home or when out, plus behind the scenes. While it’s been good during the injury as a way to keep in touch with all my fans."
McGregor and Bridges met for the first time while at ringside for the Katie Taylor vs Chantelle Cameron fight last month.
"He’s lovely [Conor McGregor] – me and Conor have been talking for a while – he’s always supported my career; I’ve talked to him online and he sends me messages before my fights and has invited me to Ireland a few times and is nice to have that support and friendship," Bridges said.
"Recently was obviously the first time I’d seen him in person and that was great after the conversations we’ve had online.
"He’s awesome and so effervescent and has that energy – when Conor walks in the room he lights it up and he’s very inspiring."
Bridges has not fought since December last year when she defended her world title by KOing fellow Aussie Shannon O'Connell, but she injured her hand in the process.
'The Blonde Bomber' is now back in training and looked as potent as ever, as she prepares for a return in July.
