Legendary MMA star Ronda Rousey joined the list of notable athletes to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue a couple of years ago.
Rousey, now 34, was featured on the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue back in 2016.
While Rousey made her name inside of the MMA world, she’s since gone on to pursue several different areas of entertainment. She got into acting and wrestling, among other things, and has also done some modeling.
