She and McGregor posed for several photos that quickly went viral, with the Aussie IBF bantamweight queen later joking that she felt she’d been ‘manhandled’ by the UFC great.
This time Bridges was showing support for McGregor’s Irish Forged Stout, both wearing the logo on her outfit and posting about it on social media.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia, Bridges revealed she had an enjoyable night with McGregor.
Ebanie Bridges wore an eye-catching outfit as she sat ringside with Conor McGregor to take in the Anthony Joshua vs Robert Helenius bout at London’s O2 Arena
Bridges and Conor made headlines when they attended another fight in May, with the Aussie saying he ‘manhandled’ her
‘Had a great night ringside at the Anthony Joshua fight with my pal Conor McGregor enjoying his smooth Irish Forged Stout,’ she said.
‘It’s always a good time with Conor – he’s always the life of the party and very humble.
‘As we know, I like to break the internet, so I thought why not rock a sexy outfit, as I do, and promote Conor’s new stout while I’m at it.’
Joshua had been set to face fellow British heavyweight Dillian Whyte until his rival had to be pulled from the card last weekend when ‘adverse analytical findings’ were detected in his doping test.
After a lacklustre start, Joshua unleashed a big right hand to dispatch late replacement Robert Helenius via knockout and set his sights on a comeback to the top of the heavyweight division.
Following Joshua’s brutal knockout in the seventh round there was brief concern over Helenius, who remained motionless, but he was able to get back up to his feet before the two fighters touched gloves.
‘AJ literally KO’ed Helenius in front of our eyes,’ said Bridges.
‘Literally in front of us! Was a mega KO.’
Bridges said McGregor was the life of the party as they watched Joshua defeat his opponent
McGregor gifted Joshua a box of his new stout before the bout started, writing on social media: ‘This man @anthonyjoshua is the definition of class, quality, and loyalty!
‘What him and @EddieHearn have built is just absolute magic!
‘I cannot wait to witness AJ Powerhouse do work this weekend and live from ringside! Wow! Honored! Let’s go!’
McGregor made it into the ring in the aftermath of the knockout and got Joshua to take a sip from a pint of his brew before his gloves had even come off.
However, the heavyweight then ignored the Irishman, refusing to make eye contact with him and walking in the other direction.
