The rumors about Ronda Rousey and Sports Illustrated’s “2016 Swimsuit” Issue are, in fact, true.
Rousey will appear in this year’s edition of its annual swimsuit issue, SI confirmed Thursday. The former UFC champion will wear a suit made entirely of body paint for her second SI Swimsuit appearance.
Rumors about Rousey’s paint-only display began to circulate Tuesday, when SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day posted this photo on his Instagram account:
Rousey fans and other interested parties identified the tattoo as hers, and SI now has confirmed their suspicions.
SI will release the 2016 Swimsuit issue next month.
