Ronda Rousey was one of three models who made the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit this year, and she didn’t even have to wear a swimsuit.
Instead, she just wore paint.
The 29-year-old UFC knockout stripped down and wore a painted-on swimsuit for her shoot with the bikini-clad publication. (RELATED: Ronda Rousey Is On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Wearing Nothing But Body Paint)
“It’s a real honor being part of such a historic issue that really pays homage to different body types of women and not promoting just one cookie cutter image for every woman, but showing that the healthiest version of every body type is the sexiest version out there,” Rousey said in a statement over the weekend.
“And I couldn’t be happier. I think I was just as honored to get it as to be there in person to watch Ashley’s reaction [laughs].” (RELATED: This Plus Size Woman Just Landed A Spot In Sports Illustrated Swimsuit)
“This is the longest I’ve just walked around naked since I was like 10,” Rousey said. (RELATED: The First Plus Size Model Just Made The Cover Of SI Swimsuit: ‘This Is Epic’)
