UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey slipped into a sheer black bathing suit for the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She posed for the magazine on Florida’s Captiva Island. While it might look warm, the photos were taken in the fall. “I’m very good at hiding the pain on my face, Rousey told USA Today.
“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,” said Rousey. “It’s very natural for a person’s body to go through seasons.” Rousey isn’t heavy now. She’s shedding weight to take on Cat Zingano at UFC 184 on February 28 in LA.
