Ronda Rousey channels 'Leeloo Dallas' in SI Swimsuit photo shoot outtakes

New, comments

Sports Illustrated released a behind the scenes look at their photo shoot with Ronda Rousey for the SI Swimsuit Issue.

Outtakes, "aggressive rubs", a 5th Element reference complete with banded swimsuit.  There's a lot packed into this short, behind-the-scenes video of Ronda Rousey on her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photo shoot. She may not have graced the cover, like she did later in May, but Ronda Rousey became the first UFC athlete to make it into the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue this year, posing in a variety of eye catching beach wear.

While the magazine was released back in February, Sports Illustrated is just now giving an extra peak at the outtakes and more behind the scenes footage from their session with the UFC champ. Ronda Rousey is currently scheduled to defend her belt against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 1st. So, stay tuned to Bloody Elbow for more news, notes, and updates.

Oh, and if you have to have more, here's the first video SI released on Rousey's swimsuit photo shoot:
