M.J. Day, the editor of Sports Illustrated’s swimwear division, posted this picture on Instagram yesterday. As is usual for this time of year, the photograph shows the body of a woman as a sneak peek of the upcoming Swimsuit Issue. This particular woman is in body paint and has a tattoo on her wrist in the same spot that Ronda Rousey has a tattoo. Thus, this is almost certainly Ronda Rousey in body paint.
So in a matter of weeks Ronda Rousey will go from beaten recluse to hosting Saturday Night Live and appearing in the SI Swimsuit Issue for the second straight year. This is kind of surprising considering we don’t even know if she can eat an apple yet.
