Your eyes did not deceive you. That is Ronda Rousey wearing nothing more than a body paint swimsuit and a smile as she poses for cheeky photos in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue that comes out next month.
“Secret’s out,” the UFC star wrote on Instagram, adding a bikini emoji. “So here’s a free preview of this year’s 2016 SI swimsuit issue … ”
“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!”
If it’s like everything else Rousey, who also appeared in the 2015 issue, touches, this may be the annual issue’s biggest seller yet.
