Michelle Waterson Nude ESPN Body Issue Cover Revealed

UFC women’s strawweight fighter Michelle Waterson will feature on this year’s ESPN Body Issue, and the cover for her version of the magazine has now been revealed.

The cover shows the 31-year-old mother-of-one going fully nude for the photoshoot, though she’s not the only athlete that will be doing so, as in total there are 23 other men and women from a range of different sports that will be appearing this year, including tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, six members of the U.S. women’s hockey team and Dallas Cowboy’s running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Waterson isn’t the first MMA fighter to appear on ‘The Body’ issue, with past participants including Gina Carano, Miesha Tate, Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor, Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino and Jon Jones.
