Katie Taylor fought in her own backyard on May 20 when she took on the undisputed super lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron. Needless to say, one of her biggest supporters, Conor McGregor was in attendance to cheer for her. While Katie couldn’t secure the victory, another subject from the same event has now become the talk of the town.
Fans caught a mysterious blonde woman getting extra comfortable with ‘The Notorious.’ The woman turns out to be Ebanie Bridges, who many people regard as the “world’s sexiest boxer.” She was a dazzling distraction at the event as she watched Katie Taylor suffer her world title agony beside the UFC icon.

The 36-year-old Australian professional boxer sparkled in a low-cut silvery dress as Cameron handed Katie her first defeat following a thriller in Dublin. Conor slumped in his seat in despair after Katie‘s homecoming got ruined at the hands of Chantelle. During the night, McGregor was happy to pose with Bridges, however, he must have been less impressed with her had he read Ebanie’s joyful reaction to Chantelle’s victory.
She wrote – “I AM SO PROUD of this woman! I knew she would win. What an incredible performance.” While she happily posted pictures of her getting up close and personal with the UFC megastar, Conor’s fans seem to have turned on him, considering the Irishman has a fiancée with whom he shares 3 kids. Witnesses saw the duo talking to each other during the event and even sharing a hug.
