Ronda Rousey is as fierce as they come, but the legendary MMA star is more than just a fighter, as she’s often showed.
The former UFC star turned wrestler turned actress has often ventured out from her fighting persona.
Back in 2016, Rousey joined the list of notable athletes to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Several notable athletes have posed for the iconic magazine issue and Rousey joined the list five years ago.
Rousey was one of the cover models for the 2016 issue. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit has shared some of her best photos on social media.
