Hot on the heels of the news that Ronda Rousey will be hosting Saturday Night Live later this month, it’s also emerged that the former UFC woman’s bantamweight champion is also set to appear in a pulse-raising nude, body paint photo shoot for Sports Illustrated.

SI’s swimsuit editor MJ Day posted up a snap of a mystery model’s derriere wearing only bikini style body paint yesterday and keen observers quickly figured out that it was in fact the MMA superstar due to a couple of discrete tattoos on her wrists.

The full photo shoot is expected to appear in the February issue of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue.
