WATCH: SI releases behind-the-scenes vid of Ronda Rousey body painting


For the second year in a row, Ronda Rousey will be featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, but this year the UFC star will grace one of the covers.

Thanks to Rousey’s popularity, Sports Illustrated actually was forced to do two shoots with her after paparazzi staked out and published shots from the original location and shoot.

The photos of Rousey wearing nothing but body paint went viral, so to ensure that there were some completely new photos in the issue, Sports Illustrated got Rousey in a second set of body paint shots.

The behind the scenes video published on Saturday to hype up Rousey’s appearance shows what she endured to get the paint applied to her body.

"This is the longest I’ve just walked around naked since I was like 10," Rousey joked as she was being painted.

From the look of things, Rousey had a lot of fun doing the shoot and now she becomes the first mixed martial artist to grace the SI swimsuit cover. Get a good look at it by clicking on the link in the tweet below.
