Former UFC women’s bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey is gracing the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. But rather than donning their model in the traditional swimwear for the magazine, SI took a different approach.

Rousey was photographed naked, covered in body-paint for her SI cover – something that saw her shoot go viral prior to the magazine’s release.

Watch a special behind-the-scenes video of Rousey’s shoot below.

Rousey recently won ‘Submission of the Year’ for her victory over Cat Zingano at UFC 184.
