Losing her first fight ever to Holly Holm hasn’t slowed Ronda Rousey down! In fact, it looks like she may be kicking 2016 off in a BIG way — as cover girl for the sexy ‘Sports Illustrated’ Swimsuit issue! See the sneak peek photo that has fans buzzing right here.
Will Ronda Rousey, 28, be the next sexy lady to cover Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue?! An editor for the mag teased the buzzed-about edition on Instagram Jan. 5, and all signs point to the MMA fighter stripping down as a cover girl. Check out the pic here and let us know what you think!
The pic features nothing but a toned woman’s backside, wearing nothing but body paint forming the outline of a one-piece, open-backed swimsuit. Besides a drop of blonde hair dripping into the shot, there’s one majorly revealing factor: The circle tattoo on the woman’s wrist, which is just what Ronda has on hers!
Well, this definitely gives us a pretty good idea, but the official cover won’t be released until Feb.! Until then, Derek Jeter’s fiance, Hannah Davis, will continue her reign — she appeared on the 2015 cover wearing a skimpy, shimmery two-piece, and posed pulling off her bikini bottoms dangerously low.
Ronda really made a name for herself in 2015, although, unfortunately, she ended the year on a bit of a low note: Her undefeated record was broken after she got pummeled by Holly Holm in a brutal fight. “I’m really f***ing sad,” she admitted in an interview. “It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact.” Ouch!
But it won’t be too long before fans get to see her back in the ring: It’s been confirmed by MMA president Dana White that the 28-year-old will take on Holly in an epic rematch, and, as HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reported, it’s likely that the fight will happen at UFC 200 in Las Vegas this July. Get pumped!
