Ronda Rousey Looks Set To Return To Sports Illustrated In Very Revealing Shoot

Sports Illustrated

Ronda Rousey looks set to follow up on her 2015 Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoot with another highly revealing appearance.

Editor of the magazine M.J. Day uploaded a teaser photo of the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, allegedly wearing nothing but body paint.

And although the photo only shows the fighting badass’ backside, fans have been quick to deduce the woman’s identity.

Not convinced it is Rousey?

Well take a look at the tattoos on the model’s wrists and then compare it to one of MMA star’s old Instagram posts.

Here it is : kodokan flower on the right, octagon on the left by @Hilmartattoos

The other massive giveaway was Sports Illustrated pretty much owning up immediately with an article titled ‘Who’s that girl? SI Swimsuit 2016 snap may reveal Ronda Rousey in body paint’. Yeah that’s pretty conclusive.

All I can say is that Rousey definitely seems to have regained any confidence she may have lost following that defeat to Holly Holm.
