Ronda Rousey : UFC Champ Sizzles In SI Swimsuit Issue

Ronda Rousey is no stranger to magazine spreads, having turned up in ESPN’s The Body issue in the buff, and making the Maxim Hot 100, but she’s set the internet ablaze again thanks to an appearance in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Undefeated Rousey is the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion and the 28 year-old has won eight of her ten fights by armbar.

As well a highly talented athlete, Rousey is also an actress with two major films set to come out in the next 12 months.

The UFC fighter will be included in the swimsuit issue , adding to her modeling accolades over the past few years.

“I purposely tried to get a little bit heavier for the ‘SI’ issue so I was a little bit curvier and not in top fight shape look but the look at which I feel I’m the most attractive,” she said.

“It’s very natural for a person’s body to go through seasons.”

Rousey will defend her title against Cat Zingano in less than three weeks at UFC 184.

Rousey became the first American woman to earn an Olympic medal in Judo at the Summer Olympics in Beijing in 2008.
