How good does your butt look covered in body paint?

Last year, Ronda Rousey took a huge hit when she lost a UFC Women’s Bantamweight championship fight to Holly Holm. Ronda is making her big return to the ring, however, she’s fighting with different muscles this time around.

The blonde California native hits the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in nothing but body paint, and needless to say, her spread is flawless. A photo of Rousey’s painted glutes first appeared online via an SI editor’s Instagram account. Ronda appears to be in a one-piece bathing suit, but if you look closely enough, she actually has nothing on.

Shortly after the mysterious photo surfaced, the fighter and the beloved publication confirmed all the booty chatter:
