Ebanie Bridges already has a plan in place for retirement after going into business with Conor McGregor.

The IBF bantamweight world champion returns on Sunday morning in the United States, defending her belt against Miyo Yoshida.

And she will do so sponsored by McGregor’s Forged Irish Stout.

Bridges has formed a partnership with the brand and the UFC legend himself,” The Sun reports.

She told Lucky Block: “Obviously, mine and his collaboration is a little bit deeper.

“I’m a face for Forged Stout now. I can learn a lot from him as well for when I finish boxing – and what he’s doing in business, I think is really inspiring.

Conor McGregor and Ebanie Bridges have an understanding.

“It was natural and we’ll be working together for the remainder of my career. We work really well together.

“I’m great for his brand and he’s great for my brand, and we get along really well.”

Bridges, 37, was due to face Avril Mathie, 36, in what she dubbed the “Battle of the Boobs” but her Aussie rival pulled out.

Bridges will continue to be one of the headline fights on the undercard of the Regis Prograis vs Devin Haney fight in San Francisco after Yoshida stepped in at short notice.

Bridges is “believed to be gutted” that swimwear model friend Mathie was forced to pull out.

Meanwhile McGregor, 35, has been out since July 2021 when he broke his leg against Dustin Poirier, 34, in the first round.

But he is now set to return next year against Michael Chandler, 37, with the Irishman preparing for the bout.

Bridges revealed: “I don’t know who it will be but I know he’s training. I’ve seen clips of him training and he’s busy in the gym.

“I don’t know if he puts it on his socials. I don’t really look at his social pages to be fair, but I’ve obviously seen some of his training stuff that he’s done.”
