Ebanie Bridges feelings clear on Paige VanZant collab 'that will break the internet' | Boxing | Sport

Former IBF bantamweight champion Ebanie Bridges believes a collaboration with ex MMA star Paige VanZant would ‘break the internet’. Both Bridges and VanZant made their name in combat arenas before turning to social media, where the pair have build huge followings.

Bridges, who lost her belt to Miyo Yoshida last month, is in the market for new content partnerships. The Blonde Bomber recently agreed to work with UFC legend Conor McGregor to promote his new Forged stout brand.

Now it appears a collobaration between Bridges and her friend VanZant is on the horizon. The duo teased the idea of a potential link up after messaging back and forth on social media this week after suggesting they could work together last year.

Back in July, Bridges claimed the pair were working to sort out a collaboration amid their busy schedules. She told her 858,000 Instagram followers: “We were trying to organise it but she got really busy and I moved. Hopefully we can get back on track because I would love to collab with Paige VanZant. That would be f****** sexy.”

Earlier this week, the duo once again teased a collaboration. After VanZant uploaded several photos to Instagram while wearing a pink maid’s outfit, Bridges heaped praise on her pal.

VanZant then asked her 3.2 million followers if they’d be interested in seeing her and the 37-year-old work together. She offered two answers in a poll: ‘YES, I’ll die’ and ‘THAT WILL BREAK THE INTERNET’.

The Australian boxer replied saying: “Needs to happen” – along with several suggestive eyes emojis.

In 2019, VanZant revealed she made more money outside the UFC via Instagram than she did through fighting before she was unceremoniously dumped from the organization following a loss to Amanda Ribas. The sentiment rings true for the 29-year-old to this day; back in August, she declared she made more money over a 24-hour period on OnlyFans than in her entire UFC career.

During an appearance on Barstool Sports’ OnlyStans show, VanZant said: “Yes, OnlyFans has been my largest source of income, I would say combined in my fighting career, I think I’ve made more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than I have in my entire fighting career.”

VanZant spent seven years fighting in UFC but later turned to bare-knuckle boxing, although she was also briefly involved with professional wrestling company AEW. Meanwhile, Bridges held the IBF bantamweight title for nearly two years, winning the belt after beating Maria Cecilia Roman in March 2022 before defeat in December.
