Ronda Rousey’s small wrist tattoos gave it away in the inconspicuous photo that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editor MJ Day posted to her Instagram account recently.
Day posted a photo of Ronda’s backside and didn’t clue anyone in on who it was in the caption, but loyal Rousey fans noticed the tattoos and made it known very quickly in the comments.

Ronda posted this to Instagram letting everyone know that she will be naked wearing nothing but body paint in the 2016 issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. She captioned her post, “Secret’s out – so here’s a free preview of this year’s 2016 SI swimsuit issue … I was one of the lucky few chosen to be a canvas for a hand painted masterpiece that took 14 hours to put on – these are just behind the scenes shots taken with a phone’s camera, can’t wait to show you guys the final pics the when the issue hits stands! Link in bio 👙”

2016 already looks to be off to a good start for the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion. Will she be able to get back to the top and get the belt back this year as well? Share your opinion with us in the comments!
