Former UFC star Paige VanZant is clearly very comfortable in her own skin.

The former MMA star turned boxer turned wrestler posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, after all.

“This is my way of not holding anything back. I want people to know that you don’t have to choose. You do not have to label yourself as one thing because that’s what surrounds you. I’m not scared anymore to show how girly I am. To go from an amazing UFC finish win in January, to shooting for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine in February could not be more of a dream come true,” she said of her decision.

VanZant has continued to share racy photos of herself on Instagram, as well.

The former MMA star has more than 3 million followers on Instagram.
