Ronda Rousey graces the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016. Check out the cover along with behind the scenes video of the body paint shoot.

For the first time in their 52-year history, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit will have three covers, and one of them will feature MMA star Ronda Rousey. The former UFC champion, who is clad in body paint, now joins Hailey Clauson and Ashley Graham on the cover of the 2016 edition.

Seen on the clip above is video footage from the cover reveal on TNT featuring the three models.

After photos leaked on their initial body paint photoshoot, Sports Illustrated had another session with Rousey with even more intricate details of paint work done. They used those new shots for the cover, which can be seen here.

More photos are found on the link above, but for behind the scenes video of both body paint shoots, check out the clip below:
