Ronda Rousey’s shoot for the ‘Sports Illustrated’ Swimsuit Issue looks like it’s going to be sexier than we even imagined! The MMA fighter is just about naked in the pics, wearing nothing but a painted-on bathing suit, newly-leaked photos from the shoot reveal. Oh baby!
Looks don’t matter when she’s in the ring, but Ronda Rousey, 28, sure knows how to turn on the sex appeal when the time is right! Just like we predicted, she’ll be featured in the highly-anticipated Swimsuit Issue of Sports Illustrated this year, and these new photos from her shoot are beyond hot. Check ’em out!
The shoot took place on Petite Martinique island, right off the coast of Grenada, and features Ronda in a woodsy area of a gorgeous beach. A silver, one-piece bathing suit with a cheetah design, copied right from a We Are Handsome swimsuit, is carefully painted onto her body, revealing a LOT of skin. The 28-year-old blonde, tanned and beyond gorgeous in the leaked pics, obtained by TMZ.
The mag hinted that the champion fighter would be its 2016 Swimsuit Issue cover girl earlier this week, when one of the editors shared a very telling photo of a woman’s backside on Instagram. A circle tattoo on the gal’s wrist pretty much gave the identity of the mystery blonde bombshell away, and these pics confirm the woman is 100% Ronda — there’s no mistaking the insane back view of this look!
And after the year Ronda has had, it’s no surprise that the magazine would want to feature her! Unfortunately, she ended 2015 on a bit of a low note, getting pummeled by Holly Holm, giving her her very first MMA loss — but there’s no doubt she’ll be back and better than ever now that 2016 is upon us. In fact, she’s starting off the New Year on a high note, hosting Saturday Night Live for the very first time on Jan. 23!
With a Holly/Ronda rematch already planned for sometime in the future, SNL is the PERFECT place for a big announcement, too. “There has already been talk of having Holly Holm either out during the monologue, Weekend Update, or in a sketch to announce the official rematch,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Oooo, exciting! We’ll be anxiously waiting, and in the meantime, you can check out Ronda’s book RIGHT HERE.
