Is Ronda Rousey shifting her focus to modelling? Well, the idea of her modelling isn’t so far fetched when she looks so stunning in the cover photos of the latest Sports Illustrated Magazine.
Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is surely getting better at modelling. According to Fox Sports she shared two new photos on her Instagram post on Wednesday from her latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit photo shoot.
The Instagram post shows her in a painted “face of a leopard” one piece in her latest shoot.
For the first time in Sports Illustrated 52-year history, the SI swimsuit issue will have three covers with Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson.
“Every single woman that is booked for this magazine is cover worthy,” explained Assistant Managing Editor MJ Day in an article announcing the news on the Sports Illustrated website. “The collective beauty in the magazine is overwhelming. SI has always been and will always be about the models; the pictures you see here are a celebration of them.
Day also explained how the three covers were chosen to celebrate the new SI Swimsuit with three beautiful, sexy and strong women. The new SI would like to advocate that beauty is not cookie cutter and there is no one size that fits all.
In the cover, Ronda Rousey is covered in paint. Back in January, there were speculations if Rousey will cover the SI Swimsuit Issue when she posted one Instagram a photo of her covered in body paint, “I was one of the lucky few chosen to be a canvas for a hand painted masterpiece that took 14 hours to put on, I can’t wait to show you guys the final pics the when the issue hits stands!”
Ronda Rousey has been extremely busy with her schedule in 2015. She is currently filming for “Road House” and her planned project with Mark Wahlberg called “Mile 22.”
The year 2015 saw the release of her two films, “Entourage” and “Furious 7”.
It isn’t sure whether Rousey will leave UFC to become a movie star and hone her acting skills or focus on UFC and go back to the ring. According to Dana White she is only taking her time off out of her busy schedule.
