EXCLUSIVE: Ronda Rousey To Pose Naked for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue?

By on

Ronda Rousey might have suffered a terrible defeat at the hands of Holly Holm at UFC 193 in Melbourne, but that has not impacted her glamour career in any way.

Rousey is set to host Saturday Night Live on January 23 and will appear alongside singer Selena Gomez.

And if that’s not enough then Rousey is all set for an encore on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and might pose naked in it, reports Mail Online.

The 28-year-old Californian previously graced the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue by donning a selection of black swimsuits and looked quite glamorous and sensational. Even famous photographer Walter Iooss Jr who shot her on the Captive Island for the issue was quite impressed with her modelling skills.

And now if reports are to be believed, Rousey is set to grace the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated again, thanks to an Instagram post of SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day which has already send the internet into a frenzy.

Day uploaded a behind-the-scenes photograph of a woman’s posterior in a grey and black patterned swimsuit body paint design which was taken during the publication’s current shoot. Alongside the photograph, Day posted: “#instabooty if #2016 keeps going like this then I’m going to be one happy happy girl! #bootypaint #siswimsuit.”

Though the face has not been revealed yet, the model in the image bears the same unique wrist tattoos as Rousey.

In April 2013, the mixed martial artist showed off her Kodokan flower Judo emblem inking on her right wrist, and UFC Octagon on her left, inked by famous tattoo artist, Hilmar Ramos.

Sports Illustrated have neither confirmed nor denied about Rousey being the possible model but in an article on their official website wrote: “Isn’t the idea of Ronda donning nothing but paint enough to tie you over until the issue comes out in February?”

“A body-painted spread in SI Swimsuit would truly be a comeback for the ages!”

Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to see Rousey grace the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.
