Ronda Rousey – Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition
This sizzling photo featured in the 2015 SI Swimsuit Edition, captured Ronda Rousey in an unfamiliar position. Usually she’s the one looking down at someone laying on the mat! Known for breaking records, the UFC champion added another accomplishment to her impressive resume by becoming the first-ever MMA fighter to appear in the SI Swimsuit Edition. Rousey was amongst some elite company in the 2015 SI Swimsuit Edition, posing alongside well known models such as Hannah Davis (Derek Jeter’s girlfriend), Chrissy Teigen (John Legend’s wife), and Irina Shayk — just to name a few.
When asked before the photo shoot whether or not she was nervous, Rousey surprised the crew by admitting she was actually pretty nervous. However, she quickly put her feelings into perspective, “I get nervous, but I don’t get scared like fighting,” Rousey said. “I get scared of fighting, because the worst that could happen is that I could die or get permanently maimed or become a quadriplegic for the rest of my life. And the worst thing that could happen here is what? Someone could say I look bad in a bikini? Fighting puts everything into perspective.”
If she was nervous, Rousey must have gotten over her nerves quickly, because she looks pretty confident (and hot) in these pictures! Although her natural habitat is the octagon, Rousey looks comfortable on the beach, in a bikini, in front of the camera. It’s probably because she’s had plenty of practice.
