Who's that girl? SI Swimsuit 2016 snap may reveal Ronda Rousey in body paint

Is Ronda Rousey planning an encore in SI Swimsuit 2016? The idea might not be as crazy as you think!

The Internet went into a frenzy this afternoon when SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo from our current exotic shoot. And while the full identity of the mystery model won't be revealed until next month, some savvy web sleuths think they may have already figured out who she is. 

Thanks to a few inconspicuous tattoos, it looks like our next body-painted beauty may be the one and only Ronda Rousey. We can neither confirm nor deny these rumors, but isn't the idea of Ronda donning nothing but paint enough to tie you over until the issue comes out in February? 

SI Swimsuit Recommends

Ronda is coming off a shocking loss to Holly Holm for the UFC women's bantamweight title and has largely remained out of the public eye since then. A body-painted spread in SI Swimsuit would truly be a comeback for the ages!
