While Ronda Rousey was absolutely a knockout force in the octagon until her loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193, one look at the photos below and it becomes very evident that she is still a knockout on the beach!
Rousey was one of the featured women for the cover of the 2016 edition of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue. Alongside Lindsey Vonn and Caroline Wozniacki, the three all decided to leave the swimsuits at home and donned nothing but skin paint for their time in front of the camera. If the original photos weren’t enough to get you hot under the collar, the new photos are even more revealing.
When asked about it, Rousey said “I was one of the lucky few chosen to be a canvas for a hand painted masterpiece that took 14 hours to put on — these are just behind the scenes shots taken with a phone’s camera, can’t wait to show you guys the final pics the when the issue hits stands!”
Rousey has recently announced her comeback to the ring with a scheduled match against the very confident Amanda Nunes. When reached for comment, Nunes responded, “I’m 100 percent gonna beat Ronda Rousey — I’m 200 percent.” But Nunes may not beat out Rousey on the beach, and isn’t that what we’re all here for?
Below we have some of the most famous photos from her first run with the magazine, the three (very NSFW!) unreleased photos and also the photos from Lindsey Vonn and Caroline Wozniacki’s photos from the same issue, because why should Rousey get all the attention?
